In a message posted to his Instagram on Sunday morning, free agent wide receiver Terrelle Pryor said he only wants to play in Pittsburgh.

But if healthy and available, should the Steelers seriously consider him?

The 6-foot-4, 30-year-old former Jeannette football star was seventh in the NFL in 2016 in total yards while playing for the Cleveland Browns. His best season as a receiver, he caught 78 passes for 1,049 yards that year. Since that time, he's been dealing with various injuries before he was released ahead of this season by the Jacksonville Jaguars.
