Terrelle Pryor was sprinkled in with the first-team offense at Browns camp on Sunday.
It's a good sign. Whereas many players in Pryor's position-conversion circumstance might linger with the third-team offense, Pryor is already making a push for meaningful practice reps. Pryor has drawn rave reviews at wide receiver early on, with both Dwayne Bowe and Joe Haden noting how "easy" Pryor has made the position switch look. Pryor is worth stashing in deeper Dynasty leagues. The Browns' shortage of wide receiver talent could result in substantial playing time for Pryor out wide in 2015. At 6-foot-5, 232, Pryor would make for an inviting red-zone presence. He's also as tough as nails. Aug 2 - 11:31 AM

ESPN Cleveland's Tony Grossi called Terrelle Pryor "the most intriguing player on hand," at Browns camp, and "a possible playmaker who could be a game-changer."

On the opening day of Browns camp, Pryor stole the show. He didn't drop a single pass and "looked like a natural" at receiver after having never played the position at any level. "I’ve never seen anybody make that transformation in person," said CB Joe Haden. "It looks like it would work." The thing Pryor has going for him is no other Browns receiver has his size-athleticism combo.

Browns coach Mike Pettine hasn't closed the door on Terrelle Pryor at quarterback, but wants him to focus "1,000 percent" on receiver for training camp.

Perhaps Pettine is beginning to confront the reality that Josh McCown and Johnny Manziel are his top-two quarterbacks. For his part, Pryor believes he's competing as a "slash" player, someone who dabbles at quarterback while getting touches elsewhere. Pryor will undoubtedly be one of the 53 most talented players in Browns camp, it's just a matter of if he can find a role.

Terrelle Pryor says he's competing for a roster spot as a "slash" player.

"I'm going to give this slash-player deal a chance," Pryor said last week. "I just want to play football. I'm a playmaker, and I believe if I can touch the ball, I can go to the house, especially if I have space." A "slash" player is typically a quarterback who gets touches elsewhere on the field. The Browns have made it clear they signed Pryor as a wideout, and not a signal caller. Pryor would undoubtedly be used in gadget packages if he cracked the 53-man roster, but his odds live and die on his ability to adjust to receiver.

ESPN Cleveland's Tony Grossi gives waivers acquisition Terrelle Pryor a five percent chance of making the Browns' 53-man roster.

Pryor is a freak athlete, but making the transition from quarterback to wide receiver at the age of 26. Cleveland's abysmal receiver corps is working in Pryor's favor, but there's a chance he simply bombs at his new position. Pryor will be a fascinating case in training camp and the preseason.

Browns claimed WR Terrelle Pryor off waivers from the Bengals.

Pryor is a worthy flyer for Cleveland, which currently can lay claim to the poorest wide receiver depth chart in football. Pryor, 26, dabbled at wideout at Ohio State and has embraced a full-on position switch in an effort to extend his career. Pryor is huge (6'5/232) with low-4.4 timed speed coming out of college. With Vince Mayle, Brian Hartline, Andrew Hawkins, and Taylor Gabriel as his primary competition behind Dwayne Bowe, we wouldn't totally rule out the possibility Pryor earns meaningful wide receiver snaps for the Browns this year.

Free agent Terrelle Pryor confirms he's switched positions to wide receiver.

"Going to miss quarterback, but I will make a great wide receiver," Pryor tweeted. "Already working." There were exclamation points for emphasis. It's a smart move for Pryor, albeit one he's making out of necessity. Pryor has used up all his chances at quarterback. A towering 6-foot-5, 232 pounds, Pryor is unlikely to still run in the low 4.4s like he did coming out of Ohio State, but remains an impressive athlete for his size. Someone should take a flier before camp.

The player rep for free agent Terrelle Pryor is informing NFL teams his client is now open to playing wide receiver.

Pryor stated in May that he was only willing to play quarterback in the NFL. He's had a change of heart -- smartly -- and will take a shot at another position. At his Pro Day before the 2011 supplemental draft, Pryor measured in at 6-foot-5, 232 and ran forty times of 4.38 and 4.41. Still only 26 years old, Pryor should get at least one more chance at a big-league career. Albeit very limited, Pryor does have some history lining up at wideout. He caught two TD passes at Ohio State.

Bengals waived QB Terrelle Pryor.

Pryor lasted 40 days on the Bengals' roster after spending just 42 days on the Chiefs' earlier this offseason. His NFL days are just about caput. Pryor simply isn't a quarterback and has been reluctant to switch positions. In Cincinnati, A.J. McCarron and Josh Johnson are locked in as Andy Dalton's backups.
Jun 18 - 5:20 PM

Bengals signed QB Terrelle Pryor, formerly of the Chiefs.

Still only 25 years old -- he turns 26 in June -- Pryor impressed during his rookie camp tryout and will join A.J. McCarron and Josh Johnson on the Bengals' quarterback depth chart behind Andy Dalton. Although Pryor's passing skills are far less than NFL-starter caliber, he is a big, physical, tough quarterback with wide receiver-like athleticism. If forced into spot duty in the event of a Dalton injury, Pryor might give the Bengals a better chance to win a game or two than weak-armed, immobile McCarron.
May 10 - 1:51 PM

Free agent QB Terrelle Pryor said he will not consider moving to another position.

"If I can't play quarterback, I can't play football," Pryor said. Pryor has the athleticism to give receiver or even tight end a try, but it does not appear he is willing to play either. Pryor is currently participating in the Bengals' rookie camp.
May 9 - 1:24 PM

The Bengals are bringing QB Terrelle Pryor in for a tryout.

He'll compete for a roster spot at this week's minicamp. Cincinnati is painfully thin at quarterback behind starter Andy Dalton, where incumbent Jason Campbell has retired and A.J. McCarron is currently penciled in as Dalton's top backup. Pryor was waived by Kansas City on Tuesday. A strong runner with limited passing ability, Pryor is destined to be a journeyman.
May 8 - 11:58 AM

Chiefs waived QB Terrelle Pryor.

The Chiefs didn't draft a signal caller, but decided their quarterback room was too full. Alex Smith, Chase Daniel, Aaron Murray and Tyler Bray now comprise Andy Reid's top four. Pryor's stay with the team lasted all of 42 days. Pryor is less than two years removed from starting nine games for the Raiders, but like Tim Tebow, his lack of passing skills is shutting doors faster than they can open.
May 5 - 4:08 PM

The Chiefs aren't considering moving QB Terrelle Pryor to another position.

"We’re going to give him an opportunity to play quarterback and see how he does," coach Andy Reid said. "We think he’s a quarterback, and I think that’s what he wants to be." Pryor is approaching Tim Tebow territory, where he'd perhaps be better off switching positions to tight end. With Alex Smith, Chase Daniel, Aaron Murray and Tyler Bray also in the Chiefs' quarterback room, Pryor will be far from assured of No. 3 duties.
Mar 24 - 4:04 PM

Chiefs signed QB Terrelle Pryor to a one-year contract.

He'll join Alex Smith, Chase Daniel, Aaron Murray, and Tyler Bray in the Chiefs' offseason quarterback room. Essentially a more athletic Tim Tebow, Pryor has completed just 56.3 percent of his 302 career passes with a 6.5 YPA and 9:12 TD-to-INT ratio. Although he is physically imposing, Pryor's passing ability is backup caliber at best, and an NFL coach would have to design an extremely run-heavy offense to make him viable as a short-term starter. We'd be surprised if he ultimately landed a 53-man roster spot in Kansas City.
