Browns have options with Terrelle Pryor, but the practice squad isn’t one

Terrelle Pryor


Since new Browns quarterback-turned-wide receiver Terrelle Pryor has two accrued seasons under his belt, he’s no longer eligible for an NFL practice squad, even after the league and Players Association agreed to looser eligibility guidelines prior to last season.

That doesn’t mean the Browns don’t have options with Pryor. Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer believes if Pryor shows enough as a pass catcher and on special teams, he could stick around in a roster spot designated for the No. 3 quarterback behind Josh McCown and Johnny Manziel or fill in as an extra tight end.

Pryor has already said he’s competing as a “slash” player without a real position. He’s simply trying to make it as a playmaking football player who has the ability to bring it to the house any time he gets the ball in his hands. He’ll be a gadget player in Cleveland should he make the 53-man roster.
