it would be risky at best. in theory, you could bend the pins back to straight, and if the processor seats properly in in the mobo, it should work.
the problem is the connections of those pins to the circuitry inside the chip probably was damaged or broken. even a simple static shock (say, not grounding yourself with an anti-static strap, or touching the case before touching a component) can zap a CPU to death, so I doubt it would be real happy with bent pins.

dont rely on my luck, but often i find bent pins on ide connecters ect (never a processer tho) and push them back into place with a plastic knife and it works.
