Terrelle Pryor played this right, even though he didn’t really get what he likely thought he’d get.
No, that’s not necessarily because his likely starting quarterback for next season took the minimum-sized steps legally required for a walk-back from reports of a trade demand Tuesday morning. If you’re absolutely clear on whether Kirk Cousins ever demanded a trade, raise your hand … you’re probably not Kirk Cousins himself, by the way.
Pryor signed a one-year contract with Cousins’ Washington team, and realistically, the less-than-concrete explanation by Cousins on Adam Scheffer’s podcast is a great illustration why. Pryor is, as they say, betting on himself. Alshon Jeffery is doing the same in Philadelphia this season.
But he’s also betting on his new team, and he has an easy exit if he loses (if they lose, actually). That’s more than a little different than what Jeffery is doing with the Eagles.
