The Cleveland Browns are expected to pursue Washington Redskins impending free-agent wide receiver Terrelle Pryor, and The Cleveland Plain Dealer's Mary Kay Cabot thinks Pryor will have interest in a reunion as well. Pryor was a free-agent bust for the Redskins, but he was also plagued by an ankle injury after having surgery in November. Pryor caught just 20 passes for 240 yards and a touchdown in nine games before his season-ending surgery. The former quarterback excelled for Cleveland in 2016, but a return to Cleveland won't necessarily boost his fantasy value back again, as Corey Coleman and Josh Gordon are firmly in the mix as two of their top receivers. It's possible 2016 was Pryor's peak.
No ADP data available for Terrelle Pryor.
Childhood and High School
Born June 20, 1989, Terrelle Pryor was considered one of the most recruited high school football-basketball athlete in Pennsylvania in NFL history. A top college football prospect in 2008, he was the first quarterback in Pennsylvania history to run and throw for 4,000 yards in a game defeating the Dunmore Bucks, 49–21, and a state season record of 860 points.
Ohio State Buckeyes starting quarterback 2008 to 2010, completing 7 of 9 passes for 59 yards and 40 time rushes on 11 carries during the first year. An 8-1 record as a starter, his first career start in a September 20, 2008, resulted in 4 touchdowns and one interception. He threw a career high for 226 yards, making 16 out of 25 passes during a loss against Penn State in October 2008. Pryor earned the 2010 Rose Bowl MVP, followed by a 73–20 win over Eastern Michigan in 2010.
Pryor was drafted by the Oakland Raiders in the third round during the 2011 NFL Supplemental Draft. Highlights include 40 time dashes clocked 4.32 to 4.54 seconds.
2011 NFL Draft
Recruited by the Oakland Raiders in the third round of the combine for the 2011 NFL Supplemental Draft on August 22, 2011, Pryor would follow the team legacy of players like Bo Jackson, Cliff Branch, and Darrius Heyward-Bey. However, after signing the 4-year salary contract, he was mandated a 5-game suspension associated with allegations of team memorabilia signing and sales at Ohio State immediately prior to the draft. Reinstated in the fall of 2011, Pryor saw his first lineup as wide receiver spot.
2012 Rookie Season
Named starting quarterback in the 2012 season finale game between the Raiders and the San Diego Chargers, Pryor, rushed for a touchdown, threw for two more touchdowns and a vertical interception; completing 46 percent of his passes in a three-point loss.
Starting in the season opener against the Indianapolis Colts, Pryor broke the Raiders team quarterback rushing record held by Richard Gannon, with 13 carries for 112 yards. In the second game, he scored rushing over 150 yards and completing 15 of 24 passes for 126 yards in a 19-9 defeat against the Jaguars. Week 8 Pryor opened with a 93-yard run touchdown, scoring two touchdowns total for the game, the longest quarterback run in NFL history, and of any player in Raiders history. Injured Week 9 in a 24–20 loss against the New York Giants, Pryor was reactivated November 24, 2013.
Pryor was traded April 21, 2014 to the Seattle Seahawks in a seventh round NFL Draft selection, yet only played preseason, and was released August 29.
The Kansas City Chiefs signed Pryor January 7, 2015 on a one-year contract, followed by a release to the Cincinnati Bengals in May, and subsequent release from the latest recruitment on June 18, 2015 when Pryor announced his switching his position to wide receiver. He signed on waiver as wide receiver of the Cleveland Browns in June 2015, released in September and resigned December of the same year.
March 7, 2016 the Cleveland Browns placed a $1.671 million tender on Pryor who was named a wide-receiver starter for the season.
