Breaking: Browns sign WR Terrelle Pryor

Cleveland Browns are signing WR Terrelle Pryor, after cutting him earlier this season.

CLEVELAND-- He made the team, then he was cut and now, three months later, he's back again. 

Former Ohio State quarterback and Browns wide receiver, Terrelle Pryor, has signed once again with Cleveland, after being cut by the team in September.

Pryor was cut by the Browns on September 10, when the team was awarded RB Robert Turbin off of waivers from the Seattle Seahawks and told Mary Kay Cabot of Cleveland.com that the Browns waiving him would be a mistake.

As it turns out, the Browns cut Turbin exactly two months later on November 10, before he was picked up by the Dallas Cowboys.  

Since he was cut by the Browns, Pryor has worked out for various NFL teams including the New England Patriots and the New York Jets, but hasn't signed with any team. 

After suffering a collarbone injury on Monday night, quarterback Josh McCown is reportedly out for the rest of the season, meaning that Pryor could be used as the team's third-string quarterback or as a wide receiver, where he played for most of Training Camp. 

Despite missing a majority of Training Camp with a hamstring injury that allowed him to play in just a single preseason game, Pryor made the Browns 53-man roster out of camp, but was cut before making his debut with the team.

According to Josina ANderson of ESPN, sources indicated that the Browns had been contemplating the return of Pryor for a couple of weeks, sighting that the team lacked a "big bodied wide receiver."

Pryor, at 6'4, 223 pounds, would fit that bill. 

In Training Camp, Pryor proved that he had the athleticism to play the position, making one-handed, acrobatic catches, but was slow to learn the nuances of his new position, after playing quarterback with the Oakland Raiders for three seasons.
