Pryor joined the Jaguars in May as an undrafted free agent. He was waived during the final roster cuts before the start of the regular season and has been on Jacksonville's practice squad since. During the 2013 preseason, Pryor ran seven times for two yards and added two receptions for 13 yards.
Pryor was a mainstay in Florida State's offense for four years, primarily serving as a lead blocker but also carrying the ball 124 times for 718 yards and catching 41 passes for 379 yards and five scores. He was a valuable goal-line weapon for the Seminoles, scoring 18 rushing touchdowns, or roughly one for every seven times he took a handoff. In 2012, his blocking was a key element in an FSU running game that averaged 205.9 yards per game and a team-record 40 touchdowns on the season.
Pryor hails from Okeechobee, Florida and will wear number 45 with the Buccaneers.
