Zach Brown: We’ll “have it out” for Terrelle Pryor at joint practices

Wide receiver Terrelle Pryor should probably keep his head on a swivel when the Jets share the practice field with Washington during training camp.

The two teams will have joint practices before an August preseason game and Washington linebacker Zach Brown said that it will provide him and his fellow defensive players to do something they weren’t allowed to do when Pryor was their teammate last year.

During an appearance on The Team 980, Brown said that coach Jay Gruden didn’t let defenders get physical with Pryor last year and noted that Gruden isn’t able “to protect you anymore” while warning Pryor away from trying to make highlight reel catches in practice sessions.

“That’s going to be something right there,” Brown said, via NBC Sports Washington. “The boys are gonna have it out for him. We can put hands on him now. … The boys were already hot for what he was doing last year. Try to one-hand something while you’re with the Jets, you’re gonna catch a forearm.”

Pryor didn’t get in any work during OTAs or minicamp as he recovered from a surgery related to the ankle injury that brought his lone season in Washington to an early end. He declared himself healthy and ready to go for camp at the end of last week, so it seems Brown and company are on track for their shot to take shots at the wideout.

  1. So Brown makes a very thinly veiled threat to injure a player in practices. “you’re gonna catch a forearm.” sounds to me like he is threatening to try to give the man a concussion. Where is the outrage from the media?

  2. As I have been saying for the last year…Redskins lose because they are soft. They have a weak coach who is soft and cannot lead men or motivate them. The proof is finally out with Zach Brown’s comment that Gruden would not ALLOW the Defense to hit Pryor in practice. And we saw how soft Pryor was in games….afraid he was going to be hit.

    Gruden is the main reason this team loses and is the reason for so many injuries. He doesn’t prepare his team for Battle. He should be teaching middle school kids.

  3. So let me get this straight: because he made some great catches in practice against you, you have a vendetta against him? Maybe I’m weird, but shouldn’t you WANT your players being able to make great plays in practice so that it hopefully continues into the games?

    If their defense was getting their feelings hurt because their own teammates were making great plays in practice, then I think it should be pretty easy to see why Washington wasn’t very good last year…

  4. The NFL: “We’re changing a bunch of rules because we care about the safety of our players.”

    Also the NFL: “Let’s ignore that player over there threatening to hurt an opposing player at practice.”

  5. His comments make little sense. A WR isn’t going to make a one handed grab when he can make a two handed grab. That’s football 101 right next to “don’t jump for a pass that you don’t have to”. It sounds like his true problem lies with his coach but he is too afraid to say so.

    I wonder what the league office will have to say about his “forearm” comment as well.

  6. Pryor was basically a “Showoff” while on the Skins. Talked a lot, Instagram was always popping up with unbelievable catches and his crazy work ethic. And how he carried himself off the field like he was a number one receiver somewhere. I’m sure the D wants to remind him why he will be sitting at home after the Jets cut him.

  7. Lots of hate for anybody on the Skins talking tough. I get that the Skins need a tougher coach, need better play, and a tougher mindset. And Brown needs work on his tackling..BUT… this is a man’s game and not wonen’s Softball. So if Browns Tackle Football Talk upsets you, put your skirt on and hit the softball field. Cause championship teams play tough and have been known to play Dirty. Patriots…Eagles…85 Bears etc.

    If Brown was a white guy there would be outrage.

  9. Maybe Brown should of left the talking for the practice field, but as far as his tackling goes he was a top 10 3/4 inside linebacker, and top 5 in tackles last year. Maybe he was a little iffy in coverage, but the guy has no problem tackling, so get your facts straight. Httr! #Representing for you haters!
