Browns Not Against Acquiring Terrelle Pryor Through Supplemental Draft

The Cleveland Browns haven’t been very active in the free agency market so far, but does the possibility of seeing former Ohio State quarterback Terrelle Pryor raise your excitement level?

Turns out, head coach Pat Shurmur isn’t going to rule out the possibility of acquiring him through the NFL’s supplemental draft. While the league has yet to determine if Pryor will even be eligible for the supplemental draft (that is, if if even happens), the Browns have certainly done their homework on the quarterback. Plus, Ohio State’s decision to ban Pryor from the program for five years might actually work in his favor to get on an NFL team in 2011.

Pryor is a polarizing figure but there is no denying the fact that he has exceptional, if not very raw, talent and if that can be developed properly, he might end up being a diamond in the rough. The Browns are looking for a developmental quarterback after releasing Jake Delhomme on Tuesday, and Pryor is the current poster boy for quarterback development projects.

If the Browns do want to draft Pryor, they can submit a bid for the round in which they would like to draft him, though if they do get him, the team loses that pick in next year’s draft.

What do you think, Ohio State/Browns fans?

    we’re sending the wrong message to our young athletes, when they can break the rules and help ruin a football program, and then make big money in the pros. time to set the precedent that you won’t be rewarded for breaking the rules.

    i do feel for the kids, they make big bucks for the schools and get busted bodies in return. but they are offered an education, if they take proper advantage of it. some sort of compensation maybe is in order, but for now the rules are the rules. time to pay the piper, not to get paid.
