RENTON, Wash. (AP) — With one designed rollout and sprint to the end zone, Terrelle Pryor showed why the Seattle Seahawks sacrificed a late-round draft pick to add another quarterback.

Pryor’s 44-yard touchdown run last Friday against San Diego showed off all his athleticism. He didn’t just run away from defensive linemen and linebackers, but left defensive backs playing chase.

It was a moment that commanded attention and reminded people how unique Pryor is as a quarterback.

But there is nothing guaranteed for Pryor in Seattle.
