Report: Browns will attend Pryor’s workout

110104_terrelle_pryor_sugar.grid-5x2 AP

Former Ohio State quarterback Terrelle Pryor plans to conduct a Pro Day workout on Friday.  One team that plans to attend could possibly keep him in the state of Ohio.

Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports that the Browns will attend the session.  It’s not known which member(s) of the staff will be present.

The news comes amid talk in league circles that some teams will stay away unless and until Pryor is declared eligible for the supplemental draft before Friday.  Any team that shows up if Pryor hasn’t been declared eligible could be in violation of league rules, exposing the team to a fine and/or the loss of one or more draft picks.

    Go Browns way to waste those draft picks!

    Teams will also be fined if they mention him by name, or in any way acknowledge his presence upon this earth. Severely.

    I don’t see the Browns having an interest in him as a QB… They just drafted Colt McCoy and he looked good at times last season. Are you just making this a story about the Browns because of the Ohio connection? If so, this has Tebow to the Jags written all over it.

    The wonderment of being a Browns fan.

    You spend weeks wondering why there is no news on your team, and no free agency pickups.

    Then, when you see the Browns name in a title heading…

    ITS THIS!

    Just freekin shoot me. Its never gonna end.

    I just spit all over my monitor reading this headline…

    The only thing that could be better than the Clowns getting this loser would be if Mike Brown and the Bangles got him…

  6. Exiled1 says: Aug 9, 2011 3:05 PM

    He needs to switch to another position if he expects to actually play in the NFL. I always thought he was way over-rated anyway. And I’m a Buckeye fan.

    The Browns will always suffer. LOL J-E-T-S JETS JETS JETS

    So more than likely the Browns are going to ask him to run routes as a WR I am guessing, I understand you want QB depth, but as of right now its looking like the Browns have thier QB for atleast this season.

  9. football58 says: Aug 9, 2011 3:23 PM

    Well it’s not hard to see why the Browns would bring in another QB. Colt McCoy is terrible, and the Browns will be lucky to win 4 games this year.

    “Any team that shows up if Pryor hasn’t be declared eligible could be in violation of league rules, exposing the team to a fine and/or the loss of one or more draft picks.”

    I think you would be wasting your draft pick by taking this guy.

  11. wilddeuce03 says: Aug 9, 2011 3:27 PM

    For those that didn’t read the article in its entirety, it says that the Browns will ATTEND. Didn’t say anything about seriously considering him. You honestly think there won’t be members from other teams there? Besides, if he can be had for a 5th or lower pick why not take the chance? He’s a low risk, high reward option. Love him or hate him, Pryor has potential.

  12. hobartbaker says: Aug 9, 2011 3:27 PM

    Real Madrid just signed a 7 year old kid named Leo to a professional contract. I guess he is three years out of high school with a valid reason for not returning to college.

  13. tommyf15 says: Aug 9, 2011 3:29 PM

    I think it’s a little early to start crying about this.

    If Cleveland or anyone else uses a first round pick on Pryor…well, I’d be amazed.

    But if Pryor goes with a fourth or fifth, save your whining. It’s not as they’re giving up a lot to take a chance on a huge player with great speed and athleticism.

  14. jaystop says: Aug 9, 2011 3:30 PM

    This guy is immature, selfish and lacks the headiness needed to play QB in the NFL. I’m an Ohio State student that saw plenty of this guy the past 3 years. Was a total poison to the team and the university. He won a lot of games, but he got away with a lot because of his freakish athletic ability.

  15. realdraftgm says: Aug 9, 2011 3:31 PM

    bottom line is every team should be able to go there without hearing about this b.s. of losing draft picks if the nfl has not made a statement that is their own fault no the fault of a team showing up; the way I see it is not saying anything means you can show up until someone says you can’t not the other way around just like the world innocent till proven guilty not the other way around. He should be eligible because he is not eligible at Ohio State not hard to figure out and if the league keeps him out then they are doing something illegal doing favors for the ncaa that do not go along with the rules in place is illegal just like it was illegal for him to do what he did with the benifits the ncaa cannot force people to follow there rules then try to force the nfl to break the rules of eligibility as an illegal favor if they do Pryor should sue for irreperable harm and win I am sure ten million.

    I promise you they’re not looking at him with the QB position in mind. At least not as the primary role they’d want him to play.

    You can have him Ohio!

    Go to the Browns Terrell! You can bring down another Ohio team and the state of Pennsylvania will be grateful! GO STEELERS!

    Yeah two in a row according to some of them. :P
    Their games with my Pats are their SBs anyway. And I can’t smack them for that really since they are 3-2 vs the Pats under RR.

    My guess is Browns are just doing due diligence on the guy. Could even be as a favor to someone.

  22. spikedavis44 says: Aug 9, 2011 4:02 PM

    Don’t agree with taking a chance on Pryor, but it makes sense given Pat Shurmur’s many years as DNabb’s QB coach. He is probably looking for his own dual threat QB and believes he can develop anybody. Definitely an Andy Reid disciple.

  23. thefiesty1 says: Aug 9, 2011 4:22 PM

    No, No, No! Say it ain’t so. Get McCoy some more receivers with those draft picks. Don’t waste them on a tattooed cheater.

  24. camdenyard says: Aug 9, 2011 4:32 PM

    The Clowns have never seen an Ohio State player that they didn’t want.

    Explains a lot.

    Dude – I’m no english major, and I don’t normally criticize grammar, but that is the longest sentence I’ve read in a very long time. Punctuation is your friend!

  26. football58 says: Aug 9, 2011 4:38 PM

    We’re talking about the Browns here, the NFL’s doormat. Seriously Browns fans, when is the next time your team will even sniff a .500 season?

  27. lbcoach34 says: Aug 9, 2011 4:59 PM

    Could be a nice TE to add to the mix

  28. oldbrowndawg says: Aug 9, 2011 5:17 PM

    Let’s see now, who should the Browns send to this dude’s “pro day” activities? Perhaps the janitor ’cause this jerk ruined Jim T’s career at OSU due to his “the world owes me everything” attitude. I can see NO potential situation where Mike Holmgren lets the Browns kick this guy’s tires. Sure hope not, anyway. Last thing this franchise needs at this point is another “Look at me, I is somebody” diva like Braylon Edwards who thankfully is in Cleveland’s rear view mirror!

    Really? How many former Buckeyes can you name that the Browns either drafted or signed in free agency since the team returned in 1999?

  30. kingtrukr says: Aug 9, 2011 5:46 PM

    Yes, the Browns will attend Pryor’s workout. What they neglected to say was they are sending their grounds crew chief as the team representative. Pushing a wheelbarrow is the only way that Pryor should ever set foot on an NFL field in a professional capacity.

  31. thereisalwaysnextyear says: Aug 9, 2011 9:27 PM

    Look at what Philly “paid” for Vince Young. PLEASE PFT explain why anyone would pay more for Pryor? He’s not as good and look at what Vince has done. Granted he has issues, but so does Pryor. Neither are the sharpest knives in the drawer, but if Philly can get Young for what they did, why in the heck should anyone give more for Pryor, who’s probably a lessor player. F.A. here I come!

  32. lenke08 says: Aug 12, 2011 2:36 AM

    The only way Pryor will be in an NFL stadium is if he is walking up and down the steps yelling Pop Corn get your pop corn here!

  33. paulbrownsrevenge says: Aug 16, 2011 12:32 PM

    Holmgren will do this to please critics and the crazy OSU fans. Pryor has no shot at ever being worth anything in life. He’s a selfish punk kid who doesn’t get the big picture.

    Terrelle, After you move back to Jeanette, Do me a favor; while your working at the local barbershop telling your stories to young kids, Make sure you send the kid that reminds you of yourself to another school. -OSU
