Terrelle Pryor thinks he could have contributed more while he was with the Jets.
The 29-year-old wide receiver signed with the Bills this week after he was released by New York in mid-October. Pryor told reporters Wednesday he felt the Jets “underused” him.
“I do believe that,” Pryor said. “Absolutely.”
“I can ball, bro. I’m not being cocky. I just know how I study and how I work and how I practice.”
Pryor was cut by the Jets while he was dealing with a groin injury. He said, however, he has “so much love” for the organization.
“Resentment, you can’t (have) because it’s business,” Pryor said. “Obviously, I was pretty upset. It’s embarrassing when you get cut, whether it’s from an injury — I know it’s injury, I had a tear — so obviously it’s embarrassing.
“But I have nothing but respect for (Jets) coach (Todd) Bowles over there and (general manager) Mike MacCagnan, and all the coaches that I had. I loved it over there. I loved them. So, I have no harsh feelings.”
The seven-year veteran inked a one-year deal with New York in March. He caught 14 passes for 235 yards and two touchdowns in six games for the Jets.
Pryor revealed to reporters in mid-August that he broke his ankle during an offseason workout and underwent surgery. He also said in early October he was unhappy with his role in the Jets’ offense.
