Terrelle Pryor is once again in the news for the wrong reasons.

The former NFL wide receiver and Ohio State quarterback was arrested in Wednesday in Penn Township, Pennsylvania on multiple charges. Pryor is facing charges of simple assault, harassment and criminal mischief.

The 32-year-old played for five NFL teams over seven years and most recently appeared in a regular-season game in 2018. After a standout collegiate career at Ohio State as a quarterback, he was selected in the third-round by the then-Oakland Raiders of the 2011 NFL supplemental draft. Pryor spent three seasons with the Raiders playing almost exlucisvely at quarterback, and he went a disappointing 3-7 as a starter.

He eventually made a transition to WR where he finished with 77 receptions for 1,007 yards and four touchdowns during the 2016 season with the Browns.

Most notably, Pryor was stabbed during a dispute with a woman in 2019 where he almost lost his life. He was still charged with simple assault, while the woman was charged with criminal attempted homicide and aggravated assault.
