After the Bengals released Terrelle Pryor last week, the Browns became the fifth team to claim him. But, unlike the previous four times with the Raiders, Seahawks, Chiefs, and Bengals, the Browns didn’t claim Pryor as a quarterback but as a wide receiver. And in his excitement, Pryor tweeted some old Bengals practice videos of him at quarterback, which proceeded to piss Cincinnati off.

While Pryor seemed excited about his second try in the NFL at the wide receiver position, his tweet only stayed up for about an hour before he deleted it. An anonymous team source had this to say about his excitement.
“I haven’t been around another player who has done that,” a team source told ESPN about Pryor’s tweets. “By no means did we think a player would do something like that.”
Pryor possesses all the physical gifts to be a talented receiver at 6-foot-5, 235 pounds with the necessary foot speed. Although, he did project well as a quarterback, and we all know how that turned out.
