When Terrelle Pryor spent the 2014 season out of the NFL, he looked like a failed quarterback whose career was over at age 25. Now Pryor looks like one of the most promising young wide receivers in the NFL.
Pryor started for the Browns in Friday night’s preseason game and opened things up with a 49-yard catch on the first play. He later added an eight-yard catch, and coach Hue Jackson said he’s loving what he’s seeing from Pryor.
“I thought it was outstanding. I think Terrelle is growing each and every day,” Jackson said.
At the moment, Pryor is the Browns’ No. 1 receiver. That may change when rookie first-round draft pick Corey Coleman gets healthy and Josh Gordon returns from his four-game suspension to start the season, but Pryor is a big part of Jackson’s offense in Cleveland. That would have seemed crazy a couple years ago, when Pryor was just looking for a roster spot somewhere, and no team would give him one.
