After leaving a big mess behind when he walked away from the Ohio State football program, Terrelle Pryor rivals LeBron James as the least popular athlete in Ohio right now. But that doesn’t necessarily means he’s leaving Ohio.
The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports that the Browns could take Pryor in the supplemental draft, and they’re at least interested enough that they’re doing their due diligence on him.
If the Browns were to take Pryor, it probably wouldn’t be as a quarterback, as Cleveland appears set with Colt McCoy as the starter and Seneca Wallace as the backup. But as NFL Network’s Mike Mayock has noted, Pryor could provide plenty of value as a hybrid quarterback/running back/receiver who takes some snaps in the wildcat formation.
At the very least, expect Browns President Mike Holmgren to give his buddy Jon Gruden a call and find out what he thinks.
