BEREA, Ohio- The Cleveland Browns waived wide receiver Terrelle Pryor, the team announced on Thursday.

The former Ohio State quarterback switched to wideout in the off season in hopes of extending his football career.

Standing at 6 foot 4, Pryor earned praise from coaches and teammates during camp for his speed and imposing size. Just hours before he was cut, Cleveland offensive coordinator John DeFilippo spoke highly of the ex-Raiders QB.

“He is still a work in progress, it’s just the technique side of things.  I’m proud of the way Terrelle has handled things and still am. And he just needs to keep improving on those technique issues,” DeFilippo said. “It’s good to see him finally open up a bit, but he is progressing nicely.”

When asked if Pryor would be active this week, DeFilippo responded: “You know, I’m going to let Coach Pettine handle that, actives and inactives, and then we’ll adjust the game plan from there.”

Pryor missed much of training camp with a hamstring injury. He had two catches for 9 yards during his one preseason game with the Browns.

“Had great time at Cleveland. Happy to get opportunity at Cleveland and good luck this weekend vs. Jets,” Pryor posted on his verified Twitter account.

Also on Thursday, the Browns claimed running back Robert Turbin off the waivers from Seattle.

The Browns first game is Sunday at MetLife Stadium.
