Daily Dawg Tags bring you all the Cleveland Browns news you need to know
Last year, Terrelle Pryor was fighting for his life. Now, the former Cleveland Browns wide receiver is fighting to get back into the NFL.
A star quarterback at Ohio State, Pryor entered the league in the 2011 NFL Supplemental Draft and was taken by the Oakland Raiders. He tried his hand as a quarterback but later converted to wide receiver and found success with the Browns.
Pryor had 1,007 yards receiving in 2016 but never replicated that success once he ended up leaving Cleveland.
He spent time with Washington, the Buffalo Bills, and New York Jets before missing all of the 2019 season after being released by the Jacksonville Jaguars. He was later stabbed in the neck and chest (and charged as a co-combatant) and nearly lost his life. Now, Pryor is back to full health and wants back in the league — even saying he’s already spoken with the New England Patriots.
The story of him trying to get back in the NFL, and more, can be found in today’s Daily Dawg Tags.

"“Terrelle Pryor tells TMZ Sports his NFL career ain’t done yet … the wide receiver is gearing up for a comeback, and says he’s already spoken with the Patriots about a possible signing.The 31-year-old hasn’t played in a regular-season game since 2018 … and after he nearly lost his life in a stabbing incident back in Nov. — some thought his career was done.”"
Pryor recorded 252 yards in 2018 which was his best mark since hitting the 1,007 yards for Cleveland. He’s been considered a one-hit-wonder but hopes to put that moniker to rest with his latest comeback.
"“Williams started all 12 games he played in as a rookie. But his results were very much of a mixed bag, especially in coverage.That’s why heading into 2020, he should be under the most pressure of the 2019 draft picks to step up in his second season.”"
Greedy Williams missed a lot of time early due to a hamstring injury which hurt him as he made his transition to the NFL. The talent is there, he just needs to get the reps in. He should be just fine but there’s surely a microscope after he struggled as a rookie.
OBJ has called himself the most scrutinized player in the NFL and these latest comments from an unnamed NFL coach could be just another example of that. While he was named the 4th best receiver in the game by ESPN, they also highlight some unflattering comments made about him.
Baker Mayfield enters 2020 needing to prove he’s the future for the Browns and not another disappointment — like these eight players ended up being for Cleveland.
