Be Wary of Pryor Headlines
Don Delco on June 21st, 2011 AT 11:55 AM
These here interwebs will have you believe today that the Cleveland Browns are going after Terrelle Pryor.
Headline after headline leads you to believe there is something brewing…
“Browns EXPLORING Pryor…”
“Browns INTERESTED in Pryor…”
“Browns LOOKING INTO Pryor…”
Is it a foregone conclusion that the former Ohio State quarterback is coming to Cleveland in the supplemental draft? Of course not. Yet wouldn’t you expect an NFL team to “look into” or “explore” any potential player? I’d hope so. It’s called scouting.
So take these headlines with a grain of salt and it is highly unlikely that old No. 2 Browns jersey you have will once again be useful.
