Terrelle Pryor to visit Philadelphia Eagles? [UPDATE]

Interesting, if true.

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

While it hasn't been officially confirmed, it appear the Philadelphia Eagles are bringing in free agent quarterback Terrelle Pryor for a visit this week. Or at least that's what this Terrell Pryor Facebook page indicates. See below:

The page isn't verified, so it's hard to know for sure if Pryor really owns the account. With that said, a number of the pictures on the page look like they would be really hard to fake. Once again, note that there has been no official confirmation of Pryor visiting Philadelphia. Or at least yet.

If Pryor truly is visiting the Eagles, that would be fairly interesting. Pryor has struggled as a quarterback in the NFL but he's clearly a very gifted athlete at 6-4, 233 pounds. Just take a look at this 93-yard touchdown run he scored last year as a member of the Oakland Raiders.

Pryor was traded from Oakland to the Seattle Seahawks in the offseason for a seventh round pick. Pryor was released by Seattle in final cuts and has been a free agent since.

The Eagles currently have two healthy quarterbacks on the 53-man roster with Nick Foles set to miss at least six weeks due to a fractured collarbone. Mark Sanchez will fill in during Foles absence and second-year quarterback Matt Barkley will be the backup to Sanchez. Philadelphia also employs quarterback G.J. Kinne on their practice squad roster. It's unclear how Pryor would potentially fit into the picture. Perhaps the Eagles see him as a wide receiver, which Pryor is reportedly open to playing, or some other position. Maybe the Eagles are just kicking the tires on Pryor and have no intentions to sign him.

In any case, it's an interesting rumor. Stay tuned to find out if there's any truth to it or if it's all just a hoax.

UPDATE: Tim McManus notes that Pryor isn't scheduled to visit Philadelphia.

UPDATE #2:

It turns out Pryor's post was half true. He didn't visit the Eagles, but he did visit Washington.
