He says he will play any position. That's only what he's saying now.
He will want to play QB - and get paid as a starting QB - in a short order.
He shows all the signs of being an attitude problem. He thinks he
is above the rules.

Too an extent, but if I remember correctly he pretty much disappeared in the SB. Kind of the beginning of the end if you will.

Pryor just left the Steelers facilities after meeting with the team for 2 hours.

The guy has an attitude/entitlement problem and until I'm proven otherwise I'll assume he won't be satisfied with a slash role. (Do we really know how the Steelers would utilize him - any statements from them on Pryor? )

Don't get me wrong - I'll never underestimate the Steelers FO - they don't make fast trigger decisions - so who knows maybe the guy did get a wake up call. As we all know (i.e. Ben's issues) the guy def. deserves a chance to become a better person.

I really see him as a great opportunity to fill in the #3 QB position with the chance to develop and become #2 behind a great vet in Leftwich. As someone stated - also gives Dixon a chance to shine elsewhere if that is his wishes. Yea he could have a run first mentality but the Steelers are best suited to hone his pocket skills more than any other team. (See Broncos debacle with Tebow)

What about TE, RB in goal line packages? Could earn his stripes as a punt returner? Basically not really sure but his potential does merit some consideration. The ROI could be worth it.

Interesting excerpt from following article on Steelers website:
http://www.steelers.com/news/article...8-8f40283ac7ce

Q. One of the new rules allows for 46 players on the game day roster, and the 46th guy doesnít have to be a third quarterback. How you see that being used?

A. By me, thatís to be determined based on the 53-man roster and ultimately the 46 guys we choose to suit. But obviously, there are some common thoughts and themes going on out there Ė that the third quarterback will be an inactive player if teams choose to have three quarterbacks on their 53, and that last active jersey will provide an opportunity for a return specialist, for special teams phenoms or things of that nature. I see it just generally across the board being utilized in those areas Ė whether it be a specialist on special teams, a kickoff or punt returner where teams havenít had that luxury in the past, or maybe some kick coverage guy who doesnít fit into a position, a half-linebacker/half-safety kind of guy. Or maybe it turns out to be an offensive package guy, whether heís a wildcat quarterback or something of that nature. Itís going to provide a great deal of flexibility, and I think itíll be very entertaining for the fans.

Just thought this was an interesting thought regarding Pryor visiting with the team. We don't even have to activate him for every game I guess. We'll see - prob won't happen.

NFL Network guessed Raiders are regarded as the most likely spot for Pryor, which makes sense on so many levels

Why do we need a unproven QB? We have 4 and we only need 3. Yes one is ancient and fragile(Batch), the other young and sucks(Dixon), the other one isn't all that great but he has won games for us when Ben has gone down.(Leftwitch) Isn't that all a backup is supposed to be? I say keep all but Dixon for a year. Then the next move Batch to some kind of QB coach and then bring dixon back up.

Steelers are regarded as deep at QB - NFL Network was speculating this evening that if Peyton Manning really will not be ready to go in week one the Colts might be looking at whomever the Steelers cut
