Terrelle Pryor out in Cleveland

AP

The Terrelle Pryor experiment won’t make it to Week One of the regular season.

Pryor, the former quarterback who tried to make the Browns as a receiver, is on the way out. A league source tells PFT that Pryor will be waived.

The Browns indicated that they liked what they saw of Pryor at receiver, and when he made the 53-man roster after last weekend’s cuts it appeared that he was ready to go for the season. But the Browns have apparently decided they need his roster spot somewhere else.

That doesn’t mean Pryor couldn’t return to the Browns down the line. And it’s possible that some other team will put in a waiver claim for Pryor. But for now anyway, Pryor is out.

  1. One only wonders what would have happened had he committed to the position change sooner. I’m impressed by that Braxton Miller kid who could’ve committed another season of wasting his time as a spread/zone-read QB at another school…instead he put his long term future first and made the switch early. Keep working Terrell but this should tell you that regardless of how talented you arm, nothing is easy in that league.

  2. Come on Chip grab him. you can use him as another weapon and make this offense even more dynamic. As Wideout, Running back, TE and he has to be a better option as a 3rd QB project….

  3. Run for any other organization Terrelle! Even Jacksonville or Washington.
    Does the front office in Cleveland drink straight from the river?
    The fodder for haters keep piling up with every mind numbing decision they make.

    I’d be shocked if another team doesn’t pick him up. His potential is worth the gamble.
    ==================================
    He was cut by Oakland and Cleveland.

  5. I still think TE is the position for him. Don’t know if he has the mindset to be a good blocker. But the routes are easier to understand/run and he’s a hell of a matchup problem for LBs.

    Decent CBs that are undersized compared to him can probably make up for that with good technique. But he should be able to have a leg up on LBs.

  6. “He was cut by Oakland and Cleveland.”

    Carlos,

    You get my vote for post of the year. Bravo!

  7. You would think this would have happened sooner since he never played in preseason in a position he’s never played before

  8. I would expect nothing less from the grease fire that is my Cleveland Browns. Maybe this is good for T.P. as Cleveland is the bottom of the barrel.
    This joke isn’t even funny anymore.

  9. last I checked Terrel Pryor’s rights in the CFL are owned by the Roughriders in Regina! They have had a terrible year for quarterbacks and have only won one game this year. Mr. Pryor could come up here for two years and sharpen his skills and then returned to the NFL and even new version of Warren Moon! Other than that you will have to just give up his dream of playing football and move on down the road! Terrel, oh, Canada, we stand on guard for thee 🙂

    At 6’4″ and @225 he would get destroyed at TE. With so little else to look forward to Browns fans get screwed again. His development would have been something to cheer for. At the very least it would have been interesting and potentially exciting

  11. Potential will buy him at least one more chance and especially now that he has committed to the position change. Whether that ever translates to production, who knows.

    What’s working in his favor here (besides his mad measurables), are that he seems to be a pretty well-grounded kid. If he were a head case or had proven uncoachable he’d be done by now but I don’t get the impression he’s that way.

  12. Pryor should’ve switched to WR much sooner than he did. If hadn’t been so stubborn about it, he’d probably have a secure spot right now on an NFL roster.

    Still, I have to give Pryor credit for eventually admitting that he wasn’t cut out to be an NFL QB — something that Tebow never was/is willing to do.

  13. i dream of a coach that has built a team before. also a gm that has a cloo in what he is doing. how dumb can you be to believe you dont need play makers on offense. i predict 4 – 12 season.

  14. If you are going to cut the man then at least do it in order to make roster space for someone who can contribute right now. This Turbin guy is several weeks away from playing due to a high ankle sprain!

    Once again the Browns braintrust craps all over itself.

  15. Time to come home Terrelle where you belong, you know you have been long awaiting. Time to go to the Washington Redskins. You obviously have an opportunity to play for a winner here and a team that is capable of winning a Super Bowl this year and beyond. You my be #8 on our depth chart due to the talent we have but I think we could find some balls to come your way. Look we made Randle El into a star and he was a complete bum. Your only half the bum he was.

  16. Nebraska has had its share of very talented running quarterbacks and running quarterbacks no matter how talented do not translate to talented NFL quarterbacks. And running quarterbacks who are not willing to change positions do not make it in the NFL.

  17. Maybe Terrelle can hang on long enough as a receiver so he gets to start catching passes thrown by OSU’s current qb Cardale Jones next season as the # 1 draft pick of the Browns??

  18. Still, I have to give Pryor credit for eventually admitting that he wasn’t cut out to be an NFL QB — something that Tebow never was/is willing to do.
    ====================
    Pryor is unwilling to believe 3 teams don’t think he’s good enough to be a QB and one doesn’t think he’s good enough to be a receiver.
