Bills considered Pryor

Bills head coach Chan Gailey admitted that they considered taking Terrelle Pryor in the NFL Supplemental draft Monday, but it sounded as if a mid-round pick was too high a price as the Bills saw it.

“We talked about it just like we talk about every guy,” said Gailey. “Buddy (Nix) and I talked about it and we felt it was in our best interest not to pull the trigger at too high a level.”

The presence of Brad Smith on Buffalo’s roster likely made it unnecessary to invest highly in a player like Pryor. Gailey admitted Smith’s presence on the roster was a factor in their decision on Pryor.

“Yeah sure it is,” Gailey said. “You already have that kind of player and that kind of athlete. We feel very good about where we are there.”

The Oakland Raiders took Pryor by giving up a third-round pick next year for the former Ohio St. quarterback.
