Browns cut Robert Turbin

The Browns waived running back Robert Turbin this morning and elevated offensive lineman Darrian Miller from the practice squad.

Turbin was claimed off waivers from Seattle in Week 1 despite having a high ankle sprain. The Browns cut receiver Terrelle Pryor, a former Ohio State quarterback, to clear room for Turbin.

But Turbin’s tenure was short. He saw his first action in Week 6 and he played three games with 18 carries for 60 yards. He dropped two fumbles Nov. 1 against Arizona, then didn’t play Thursday night against Cincinnati because of a coach’s decision.

Fantasy Impact:

The team recently cut Terrance West, so it now leaves them with Duke Johnson and Isaiah Crowell. Johnson has been excelling in the passing game making him a solid PPR play, but hasn't really been all that much of a factor running the ball. Last week, Crowell carried 10 times for 38 yards. The Browns will likely have to make a move for another back.

The New England Patriots announced Tuesday that they have waived wide receiver Chris Harper, which could mean Kenbrell Thompkins, currently on the practice squad, will soon be promoted.

Harper, undrafted out of Cal, had a productive preseason for the Pats. He caught a few breaks along the path to a spot on the 53-man roster, too. Brandon Gibson, who looked like a good bet to make the team, suffered a torn ACL in the Pats' second preseason game, and the Reggie Wayne signing didn't work out.

The Pats brought Thompkins, a favorite target of Brady's, back into the fold this past week. He spoke Monday about what it's like to be back "home" in New England. The Pats also reportedly worked out ex-quarterback-turned-receiver Terrelle Pryor Tuesday.

As he attempted to transition from quarterback to wide receiver, Terrelle Pryor showed promise in his first few days of Browns training camp. And then a hamstring injury set in.

Now, coach Mike Pettine says, Pryor is going to struggle to make the team if he can’t soon get himself healthy enough to practice.

“That window narrows every day that he’s not out there,” Pettine said today, via Mary Kay Cabot of Cleveland.com.

Fantasy Impact:

Realistically, Pryor may be running out of NFL chances. He bounced around from the Raiders to the Seahawks to the Chiefs to the Bengals and failed to make it as a quarterback, and now he’s having a hard time proving himself as a wide receiver. If Pryor doesn’t make it on the Browns this year, he may not make it in the NFL at all, the story concluded.

Browns receiver Terrelle Pryor didn’t finish practice after feeling tightness in his right hamstring, but said the injury isn’t serious.

Terrelle Pryor is trying to reinvent his career with the Cleveland Browns, and so far, he's earning rave reviews.

Browns wide receivers coach Joker Phillips said Sunday that Pryor certainly has the talent and willingness to succeed as a wide receiver in the NFL. Now, the 26-year-old former Oakland quarterback just needs to find the consistency in his technique.

Despite the learning curve he faces, Pryor is turning heads in training camp - not just for his size, but for the skillset he is already displaying. The 6-foot-4, 225-pound receiver towers over his teammates at the position, and all have been impressed with his work ethic thus far.

Browns wide receiver Dwayne Bowe even went so far to say last week that there was ''no doubt'' Pryor would make the final roster.

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

Monday, July 27, 2015, 5:50pm

Ohio.com - [Full Article]

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.

Fantasy Impact:

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