BEREA, Ohio- He's big. He's fast. And he's the talk of Cleveland Browns training camp.
Terrelle Pryor caught a lot of attention in Berea on Thursday. He also caught lot of passes. The quarterback-turned-wide receiver was eager to prove himself among the other wideouts.
"I believe to be a good quarterback in this league and to be successful, you gotta get a lot of reps," Pryor told reporters after the first day of practice. He said he wasn't getting enough practice to develop at QB and had to make the switch.
"There are some things I need to work on," Pryor said.
Pryor said veterans pointed out positives and mistakes, thanking Brian Hartline and Dwayne Bowe for help. He also thanked the Cleveland Browns for giving him the opportunity to be at camp and the chance to play at his old stomping grounds at Ohio Stadium in Columbus for the Orange and Brown Scrimmage.
"That's very exciting and I'm very fortunate," Pryor said.
Cornerback Joe Haden, who stands at 5 foot 11, described Pryor as physically imposing.
"He's huge and he's fast," Haden said while laughing.
He's not wrong. Pryor is 6 foot 4 and runs a 40 in 4.38 seconds.
