Report: Browns, Pryor discussing contract extension

AP

For someone who once said he couldn’t be a receiver because he couldn’t catch, Terrelle Pryor has done a fantastic job of making the transition for the Cleveland Browns.

Pryor has done so well in making the move to receiver that the Cleveland Browns are looking to give him a contract extension.

According to Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer, the Browns and Pryor have had preliminary discussions on a new contract.

The former quarterback has become a bright spot on another underwhelming Browns team. Pryor has caught 33 passes for 413 yards and three touchdowns in six games for Cleveland this season. He’s rushed for a fourth touchdown as well. Pryor is currently on a one-year contract with the Browns.

With Seattle in 2014, Pryor wouldn’t entertain the idea of playing another position.

I don’t know how to catch. I don’t know how to run the ball as a running back,” Pryor said. “I’ve been a quarterback my whole life.”

The Browns should be thrilled Pryor committed to a change. Pryor should be too.

  1. Pay attention JT Barrett and the rest of the Urban Meyer QBs. IF you want a future in the NFL, you better be willing to move to another position.

  2. He absolutely deserves it. He is creating the mold for anyone else to do such a drastic change, and then being successful at it. And not just successful, but really really good. Best of luck to you.

  3. But, wait….I thought Truckstop Jimmy, Dee, the Harvard geniuses, and the MLB guy wanted an Oakland Athletics’ type of MONEYBALL! team. Now that he’s established some value, isn’t it in the analytics to just let him walk?

    Huge must be behind this signing.

  4. Braxton Miller getting much less attention for making the same move. Yes, he switched to WR in college, but has been a “team first” guy the whole time.

    Not saying Miller is or will be a better pro player. Just saying that Pryor is not the only guy who ever had to switch positions to stay in the NFL.
