Browns Terrelle Pryor could’ve been catching passes for Bengals

Former Ohio State University quarterback Terrelle Pryor could have been a receiver for the Bengals, but instead, he will be trying to catch passes against them Sunday.

Cleveland’s leading receiver spent five weeks with the Bengals last summer but was unwilling at the time to change from quarterback to receiver, according to Lewis.

“Terrelle still wanted to pursue being a quarterback when we talked to him, and we waived him,” Lewis said. “It wasn’t anything that he had done, we just wanted to go into training camp with three quarterbacks. He went up to New England and visited there, and then he went to Cleveland and suddenly he decided he was going to be a wide receiver.

“You have to credit Terrelle Pryor, the athlete that he was, because you can’t have a bigger fan than me here. I’ve watched him since high school and when he was at Ohio State. I’m excited for him, and we know how Hue feels about him. He’s done a great job of making this transition and playing very well at wide receiver.”

Pryor has 413 yards and three touchdowns on 33 catches after making just one catch for 42 yards last year, but is working through a hamstring injury that kept him from practice Wednesday.

“I participated today in the walkthrough so we are seeing how it goes,” Pryor told Cleveland-area media. “We are being cautious and I think taking the right steps to make sure that I will be able to help the team on Sunday.”
