Following his departure from the Oakland Raiders, former Ohio State Buckeyes quarterback Terrelle Pryor is beginning a new venture this season as the backup quarterback for the Seattle Seahawks. No, he will definitely not get the chance to become the starting quarterback as long as Russell Wilson is there and healthy, but that doesn’t mean that the whole experience won’t be fun.
Like we learned recently.
While Pryor was putting some work in at the Seahawks’ facility, he just so happened to run into one of the greatest quarterbacks of all-time, Brett Favre, and he shared the experience via his twitter account.

I mean, professional accomplishments aside for a second, those are two pretty similar players right there.
No one is really going to praise them for their flawless mechanics in the pocket, but they always seem to get the job done. Favre used his unorthodox quarterback tactics to reach two Super Bowls, winning one, and Pryor used his magic to get the Buckeyes to the BCS and a win over Arkansas.
Pretty much, though, that’s where the comparison ends, but it was still an awesome picture for Pryor to get while he’s settling into his new home.
