Pryor, appearing in top shape, worked out at a high school stadium near his hometown of Jeannette, Pa. He ran the 40-yard dash in 4.36 seconds and threw an array of passes.
Representatives from the Redskins, Saints, Buccaneers, Cowboys, Chargers, Browns, Lions, Eagles, Raiders, Dolphins, Bengals, Bills, Chiefs, 49ers and Patriots also attended the workout, ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter reported.
Pryor was ruled eligible for the NFL's supplementel draft, which is on
Thursday Monday, but also suspended him for the first five games of the 2011 NFL season. The supplemental draft is essentially a silent auction. NFL teams place a bid (draft pick) on a player and if they happen to offer the highest bid, that team is awarded that player for a 2012 draft pick.
So, should you look much into the Kansas City Chiefs attending Pryor's workout? Not really. It's highly doubtful that the Kansas City Chiefs and Scott Pioli would give up a future draft pick, let alone be the highest bidders for Pryor. It's not Pioli's style and the Chiefs are pretty set at quarterback with Ricky Stanzi backing up Matt Cassel. The Chiefs' attendance is probably just the team doing their basic scouting.
