Through just one week of Washington Redskins’ organized team activities, it seems as though Kirk Cousins-to-Terrelle Pryor Sr. is going to be a living highlight reel through training camp and beyond. Pryor, 6-4 and 223 pounds, is Hercules in shorts and, so far, Jay Gruden has been eager for Cousins to throw to him deep. It’s a tantalizing combination. It’s not quite polished yet, though. Washington quarterbacks targeted Pryor on a number of deep routes in the Redskins’ first OTA session open to the media last Wednesday and Pryor failed to come down with a few of them, but give it time. “There’s a lot different,” Pryor said. “You know, I’m bigger and my body movement is different than I’m sure some guys that [Cousins] played with. You know, he played with guys that are about 6-foot, 5-11, guys like that. I think the movement and how I run and how it’s deceptive, it’s kind of like, it doesn’t look like I’m really flying but I’m flying.” Cousins‘ top two wide receiver targets were Pierre Garcon (6-foot) and DeSean Jackson (5-10) last season. While Pryor doesn’t have the speed of a player like, say, Jackson, he does cover an awful lot of ground per stride. It takes some getting used to, but Pryor’s size is certainly an asset.
Kirk Cousins to Terrelle Pryor Sr. will take adjusting, but both speak same language
