TP posted this video to his Instagram yesterday:
Well. Welcome to 2016. We’ve got insanely advanced workouts and diet plans at our fingertips but sometimes we’ve just gotta go old school, hop on the ol’ hoverboard, and start snagging some pigskins. Screw running routes or doing some squats, those are for lames, It’s all about hoverboards nowadays.
I still think Pryor has a chance to do something in this league as a receiver with a full offseason under his belt. You know Hue Jackson likes those tall receivers, maybe he’ll take a chance on TP.
It’s a shame we had to wait until the last game of the season to see this:
Here are some other #PryorPorn workout videos he’s posted this offseason
Still got an arm too
And just like that…we’re back baby.
We took a flyer on him before training camp. We stuck with him through his hamstring troubles. We cut him for a running back who our running backs coach had never heard of, who was injured at the time and who we would eventually cut two months later.
But today, my brothers and sisters, today the prodigal son returns. Terrelle Pryor is back in a Cleveland Browns uniform. And with him, the return of #PryorPorn. We don’t know what we’ll get from him on the field but we do know he’ll look damn good doing it. Let’s take a trip down memory lane, back to times of sunshine and camo jerseys…
What? Why? Why even have Terrelle Pryor make the 53 man roster and announce that he’s changing his number to 17… only to cut him the Thursday before the first game of the season? Why have your team Twitter account hype him up all preseason and have him be available to the media as much as he was this summer? What’s the point of cutting a player in your weakest position group to make room for a guy who won’t be ready to play till week 3 or 4? Why not just cut Pryor when the roster was getting trimmed to 53? This makes absolutely no sense. Such a Browns move to cap off a banner week.
I’m not saying Pryor would have made an impact at WR right away but that’s not why the Browns were keeping him. This was a long term project and everybody knew that. But to cut him for a player who won’t be ready to play for awhile? Eh… Why not cut one of our FOUR tight ends? Why not cut a defensive lineman at the bottom of the depth chart?
So, to recap- Browns keep Terrelle Pryor on the 53 man roster. Terrelle Pryor gets cut to make room for an active third running back. That “active” running back won’t be active for about a month.
Welp. At least Turbin lifts
