Pryor was drafted by the Eagles in the sixth round of the 2018 NFL Draft. He played for three seasons in Philadelphia before being traded to the Colts. The Eagles sent him and a seventh round pick to the Colts in return for a sixth round pick.
He played in all 17 games of the 2021 season with the Colts, but started in only five of them. Pryor went on to play just 40 percent of the offensive snaps last season. This is down from 73 percent of the offensive snaps he played with the Eagles. He might have a bigger role in the Colts’ offense now after signing a new contract.
