A return to Cleveland may be in order for Terrelle Pryor

In 2016, Browns receiver Terrelle Pryor was one of the NFL’s pleasant surprises, a converted quarterback who changed positions and caught 77 passes for 1,007 yards.

Matt Ryan one of four non-OL to play every snap in 2017

The NFL’s longest active consecutive snap streak came to an end when Browns left tackle Joe Thomas tore his triceps in the seventh game of the regular season, but there are 32 players who will head into 2018 riding streaks of their own.
