Cincinnati Bengals cut QB Terrelle Pryor

Yet another team has cut Terrelle Pryor.

The Cincinnati Bengals announced Thursday they released the quarterback a little more than a month after signing him.

The move solidifies AJ McCarron as the backup behind Andy Dalton. McCarron has been the rave of offseason, with defensive end Wallace Gilberryclassifying the quarterback's play as "awesome."

Pryor's agent Drew Rosenhaus has informed teams that his client wants to be considered as a wide receiver, according to NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport. Rapoport reported there is already interest for Pryor's services at wideout.

Pryor trading positions could be the right move. He couldn't even convince the Bengals to part with Josh Johnson, who will likely be the veteran third-stringer, if Cincy keeps three quarterbacks again.

An enticing athlete at 6-foot-4, 233 pounds with speed, Pryor keeps getting chances but ultimately hasn't latched on anywhere since last playing 11 games for the Oakland Raiders in 2013.

He had a cup of coffee with the Seattle Seahawks last offseason; the Kansas City Chiefs cut him after just four months; and now the Bengals sent him packing.

It's getting closer and closer to Pryor not playing football in the NFL.
