Terrelle Pryor got to spend his first three season in the NFL as a quarterback with the Oakland Raiders before joining the Cleveland Browns and converting to wide receiver. He never had much success throwing the ball (with a career passer rating of 69.3), but he was a menace on the ground.

No play highlights this more than his 93-yard touchdown run against the Pittsburgh Steelers from 2013.

This still stands to this day as the longest run by a quarterback in NFL history.

The read option still hadn't become a staple of NFL offenses at this point, and it shows in the way the Steelers fail to defend this play. Their edge defender and inside linebacker and safety all sell out completely, thinking Darren McFadden is getting the ball, letting Pryor hit a wide-open lane.

And once he does that, it's game over. Nobody on the defense proves fast enough to even come close to catching Pryor, who reportedly ran the 40-yard dash in somewhere between 4.38 and 4.41 seconds at his pro day before being taken in the NFL Supplemental Draft.

At this point is seems almost inevitable that Lamar Jackson will add this record to his already impressive list, but this play will always be one that Pryor can hang his hat on.
