Browns Beat: New WR Terelle Pryor 'looked like a natural' at first practice

ESPN Cleveland - [Full Article]

After his first practice at Browns training camp, during which Terrelle Pryor did not record a dropped pass and looked like a natural at a position he has not played competitively at any level, the idea of the freakishly talented Pryor making an almost unprecedented transition so late in his athletic career didn’t seem, well, so outlandish.

“I’ve never seen anybody make that transformation in person,” said cornerback Joe Haden. “It looks like it would work.”

Pryor, 6-4 and 223 pounds, with a reputed 40 speed of 4.38 seconds at his 2011 pro day workout, is the closest thing yet to Josh Gordon. “He’s bigger than J.G.,” Haden said.

Fantasy Impact:

The odds are stacked against Pryor, and it's probably going to take some time to learn the details of the position. But the Browns need playmakers at receiver, so it's not inconceivable that Pryor works his way into a receiving role in 2015.

Browns still see Josh McCown as QB starter

Browns coach Mike Pettine views veteran journeyman Josh McCown as the team’s projected starting quarterback, former first-round draft pick Johnny Manziel as the clear-cut No. 2 and converted wide receiver Terrelle Pryor as a former signal caller who might eventually moonlight at the position.

Atop the depth chart, it’s status quo at the game’s most important position. As the Browns wrapped up mandatory minicamp in mid-June and prepared for vacation, Pettine and new offensive coordinator John DeFilippo made it clear McCown was the favorite to start the Sept. 13 regular-season opener against the New York Jets.

“I don’t think anything’s changed,” Pettine said. “The repetitions will be handled that way, with Josh as the one. Now I wouldn’t say I’m guaranteeing today that Josh McCown is going to be the starter against the Jets. A lot can happen in a preseason.”

Fantasy Impact:

Pettine didn't rule out Manziel making a move, but did note there is a clear separation between McCown and Manziel right now. McCown is 31st on our QB rankings and isn't getting a lot of attention in drafts.

After spending the last four years trying to make it as an NFL quarterback, Terrelle Pryor is now in Cleveland, trying to make it as a wide receiver. He says he has the talent not just to earn a roster spot, but to be a great wide receiver.

“I believe I can get great at anything,” Pryor told KDKA. “Just need the reps and just got to prove it.”

Pryor said he has the work ethic that only the great ones have.

“There’s not a lot of guys who work like I work,” he said. “I truly believe that. I believe somebody who works extremely hard is Antonio Brown. Definitely I’ve worked with him, I have had to opportunity to work out with him an awful lot. We spent a lot of time together in 2011 down in Florida, so I saw his work ethic. The drive, the nights we would run in the sand along the ocean, run 6 miles every night.”

Fantasy Impact:

We had a story on this item last week. Browns beat writer Mary Kay Cabot said there just may not be enough time for Pryor to learn all the details involved in the transition from QB to WR, but that it was definitely worth a shot to try and convert Pryor.

Browns beat writer Mary Kay Cabot answered a question about the team using Terrelle Pryor as a TE and/or a WR.

Cabot: The Browns will work Pryor primarily at wide receiver, but if he demonstrates he can play tight end, I can see them giving him a shot there too based on his size (6-4, 233) and athleticism. Most of the skill players line up at various spots anyway, so the lines are definitely blurred. I'm guessing that [offensive coordinator John DeFilippo] was willing to give Pryor a chance because he worked with him in Oakland and got the most of him that anyone in the NFL has as a dual-threat quarterback.

Fantasy Impact:

As Cabot says, it's worth a shot. But it could be a difficult transition to receiver, or TE, for Pryor, especially in such a compressed time frame.

Following a three day rookie mini-camp that included the team's newest draft picks, 11 undrafted free agent signings and 19 unsigned tryout participants, the Cincinnati Bengals decided to add three new members to the team – including former Ohio State quarterback Terrelle Pryor.

Terrelle Pryor's stint with the Seahawks is over.

The former Ohio State star quarterback was released by Seattle on Friday, FOX Sports 1 NFL Insider Mike Garafolo and other media report.

Pryor, who was chosen in the third round in the 2011 supplemental draft by the Raiders, threw for 1,798 yards, seven touchdowns and 11 interceptions in 11 games last year with Oakland. The Raiders traded Pryor to the Seahawks in the offseason for a seventh-round pick in last May's draft.

Fantasy Impact:

The story went on to say the St. Louis Rams might have interest in Pryor as a backup after losing Sam Bradford.

Raiders quarterback Matt Schaub missed a second straight day of practice on Monday because of a sore elbow, but coach Dennis Allen insists that the team is not planning a reprise of last year when Matt Flynn’s elbow trouble led to Terrelle Pryor making a late leap up the depth chart.

“I don’t look at those two situations as the same,” Allen said, via Jerry McDonald of the Bay Area News Group, when asked about the similarity to the way things played out at quarterback last season.

Allen also said that Schaub remains on pace to start the season opener against the Jets despite his elbow injury, which Allen said is not a major concern for him, and absence from practices that it appears he needs based on his preseason performances.

Fantasy Impact:

Rookie Derek Carr looks like he would get the start if Schaub can't play, as the situation seems eerily similar to last year. Schaub won't be ranked among our top QBs especially in a tough matchup against the Jets.

Presumptive Raiders starting quarterback Matt Schaub sat out practice Sunday with a sore elbow, a scene eerily similar to a situation a year ago that led to the ascension of Terrelle Pryor as the starting quarterback at the expense of Matt Flynn.

“He came in yesterday afternoon with a little soreness in his elbow,’’ Raiders coach Dennis Allen said. “We’ll see where he’s at tomorrow and kind of take that day by day.’’

Schaub is scheduled to speak to the media following practice Monday and was unavailable for comment. The Raiders host the Seattle Seahawks in their preseason finale Thursday night at O.co Coliseum.

Fantasy Impact:

All the work in practice went to rookie Derek Carr, second-year player Matt McGloin and veteran Trent Edwards, with Carr getting first-team reps, according to Allen.

Seahawks QBs Terrelle Pryor and Tarvaris Jackson took turns guiding the No. 2 offense, with B.J. Daniels getting a series with the No. 1 offense.

Pryor seemed more erratic — a few really good plays but also some not-so-good.

Jackson was dependable. That may be Seattle’s choice at that spot and whether they want to keep two or three QBs — the consistency and dependability of Jackson versus the upside of Pryor. I think the preseason games will tell a lot there.

When fleet quarterback Terrelle Pryor was traded to Seattle in the offseason, he didn’t take the read-option calls from the Oakland Raiders' playbook with him.

This year the Raiders are considering using running back Darren McFadden as the point man in the read option. McFadden filled the role at times at the University of Arkansas, and he ran some Wildcat early in his career with Oakland. The possibility of taking snaps directly from center excites him.

“I always tell people I really was supposed to be a quarterback, I just ended up being a running back,” McFadden said. “It’s always fun to me, being able to get back there behind center. It takes me back to my old roots. The first position I ever played was quarterback. It was my first love.”

Seahawks trade for Terrelle Pryor

Monday, April 21, 2014, 8:38pm

Pro Football Talk - [Full Article]

Raiders trade Terrelle Pryor to the Seahawks, per league source.

Fantasy Impact:

Pryor fits in as the #2 or #3 QB, probably at #3 with Tarvaris Jackson already in Seattle. This is an interesting move by the Seahawks. Pryor is a terrific athlete and the team is hoping to mold him into a capable backup to Russell Wilson.

A timetable for Terrelle Pryor’s departure from the Raiders is starting to emerge.

According to Alex Marvez of Fox Sports, teams have put “feelers” out regarding Pryor to gauge the trade market value for an athletic, albeit inconsistent quarterback who wants out of Oakland.

Fantasy Impact:

The Raiders are in no rush with no team activities in the near future, not until April 21. But the team wants him out before that so he's not a distraction. He could end up being released. Pryor ranks below newly-acquired Matt Schaub and Matt McGloin on the depth chart.

Fantasy Impact:

Terrelle Pryor returns to start at QB for the Raiders. He's a risky play with upside against the Broncos.

CSN Bay Area - [Full Article]

While QB Matt McGloin has generally played well since becoming the starter, Sunday was the first time he caused the Raiders major pain.

“It’s tough when a quarterback is going through a learning process,” Raiders head coach Dennis Allen said. “As the losses mount up, it gets frustrating. It’s frustrating for everybody.”

McGloin threw two interceptions to Chiefs safety Eric Berry, the first of which was returned 47 yards for a touchdown. He threw two more in the fourth quarter, on successive series, the last of which got him benched.

Terrelle Pryor filled in at different times – once near the goal line, again in the third quarter and after McGloin’s fourth pick – as a planned change of pace. Pryor wasn’t much better, and threw an interception in four attempts. He competed one pass for 12 yards and had 19 rushing yards on three carries.

Fantasy Impact:

Despite being pulled, Allen said McGloin start again next week against the San Diego Chargers. Odds are great he’ll also start the season finale against Denver, too. He's a QB2 option as long as INTs don't count against you. He should put up some garbage numbers, most likely trying to bring the Raiders from behind.

HC Dennis Allen said Matt McGloin will be the Raiders starting quarterback against the Kansas City Chiefs this Sunday.

Fantasy Impact:

Beat writer Vic Tafur later Monday tweeted McGloin will start the final three games with Terrelle Pryor getting some spot duty. The team obviously wants to see what they have in McGloin. The Raiders get KC, San Diego and Denver the final three weeks.
