Hue: "Pryor has made the transition" to WR

Hue Jackson said that Former quarterback Terrelle Pryor has made the transition to wide receiver.

BEREA,Ohio--What a difference a year makes. Just a year ago Terrelle Pryor was trying to switch from being a quarterback to wide receiver on the fly. Hue Jackson said he's done so.

"He's made the transition from quarterback to receiver," Jackson said after the first practice in pads.  "But I think he's done an outstanding job and now we've moved him from one side as a receiver to the other and he's in another transition as a receiver. I'm very proud of what he's done, but we've had just three practices and we all have to continue to grow."

Pryor and Robert Griffin III teamed up for the play of the day Sunday as Pryor was able to get behind Jamar Taylor and make a diving catch about 45 yards down field. After the play, Pryor jumped up and spiked the ball to the delight of the fans.
