Pryor's explosiveness has caused coach Hue Jackson to search for ways to get him the ball, Cleveland.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Pryor is trying to make the grade as an NFL wide receiver, and although his skills are rather raw and he obviously is inexperienced after coming up as a quarterback, his size and speed combination could add needed big-play ability to the Browns' offense. Knowing that, coach Jackson has already drawn up short passes and reverses to get him the ball in practice, but it remains to be seen if he can be trusted with a more balanced workload. As a result, Pryor's progress through training camp and the preseason should be worthwhile to monitor, particularly given the Browns' seemingly wide-open competition to fill out their receiving depth chart.

Pryor is working as a wide receiver at the Browns' voluntary minicamp, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

EDGE Analysis

Pryor hasn't played quarterback since 2014, and he'll probably spend the remainder of his career -- however long it may last -- strictly working as a wide receiver. With Josh Gordon (suspension) in danger of missing a second straight season, Pryor should have a real opportunity to earn a significant role with the receiver-needy Browns. He'll be competing against the likes of Andrew Hawkins (concussion), Brian Hartline and Taylor Gabriel, with a rookie or two likely also in the mix. It's unclear who will be under center, as the Browns currently have both Robert Griffin and Josh McCown under contract, and they may add another arm in the upcoming draft.

Coach Hue Jackson would prefer to assign Pryor a primary role before the start of the Browns' offseason practices, the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

EDGE Analysis

Jackson and Pryor worked together with the Raiders in 2011, while Pryor was a QB, and the coach remains intrigued by Pryor's potential as both a receiver and signal-caller. We suspect that Pryor's best chance to make an impact with the Browns is as a wideout, but his versatility could be an asset to the team. "He's demonstrated the ability to play receiver, so to me he's a weapon," Jackson said of the 6-foot-4, 233-pound Pryor. "He's somebody that we can do a lot of different things with and we'll see where fits here pretty soon."

Pryor, a restricted free agent, signed his qualifying offer with the Browns, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

EDGE Analysis

Pryor was a lock to return to the Browns, as any team that signed him would've had to provide a third-round draft pick for compensation. He may not be worth a mid-round selection, but Pryor could be headed for a strong training camp in his second season working strictly as a wide receiver. Of course, he'll likely have to compete for a roster spot, having caught just one pass in three games last season.

Pryor recorded his only reception of the season in Sunday's loss to Pittsburgh, a 42-yard fade from Austin Davis.

EDGE Analysis

Pryor had competed for a roster spot in camp, but was ultimately let go in favor of more experienced wide receiver options. When those options were severely depleted towards the end of the season, the team brought Pryor back to provide depth. He ended up with eight total targets over the three games in which he was active, but Sunday's catch proved to be the only play of the season in which he produced positive yardage. The converted quarterback will likely be a fringe roster option in 2016, whether it be in Cleveland or elsewhere. He has the size and skills to be a successful receiver in the league, but lacks experience at the position at this point in his career.

Pryor (coach's decision) is inactive Sunday against the Chiefs.

EDGE Analysis

Pryor was targeted twice in the Week 15 loss to Seattle, but has failed to log a reception in each of the two games he's been active for in 2015. With special teams ace Marlon Moore (ribs) and fellow wideout Taylor Gabriel (non-injury related) both active for the contest, the depth Pryor could have provided looks to have been deemed unnecessary.

Pryor was not targeted in Sunday's victory over the 49ers.

EDGE Analysis

Pryor made his regular season debut with the team, and although he didn't see many looks from quarterback Johnny Manziel, the wideout did make it on the field for 16 offensive snaps. With Sunday's target leader, Brian Hartline, out for the season with a broken collarbone, there suddenly may be more targets to go around in Cleveland. However, the pending returns of Taylor Gabriel (concussion) and Andrew Hawkins (concussion) may limit Pryor's opportunities.

Pryor is active for the first time this season Sunday against the 49ers.

EDGE Analysis

Pryor re-signed with the Browns on Dec. 1 after spending time with the organization earlier in the year, but will see the field Sunday for the first time. Per Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer, the wideout will see approximately a dozen snaps in the contest. His exact production will be difficult to predict, as the converted quarterback has had limited time to get acclimated with Sunday's starter, Johnny Manziel. Nonetheless, Pryor will look to take advantage of the opportunity awarded him due to the absence of both Andrew Hawkins and Taylor Gabriel, who are both inactive due to concussions. Due to all the surrounding uncertainty, calling Pryor a risky fantasy play would be putting it lightly.

Pryor is expected to get some playing time at receiver Sunday against the 49ers, Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports. "Terrelle looks good. I don't know if he's ready to take on a full role, but there's a chance that there will be some involvement in the plan there," said coach Mike Pettine on Friday.

EDGE Analysis

Pryor, who re-signed with the Browns at the beginning of December after trying out for several teams, will see his first regular season action as a receiver Sunday when the Browns take on the 49ers. Coach Pettine's comments indicate that Pryor will be utilized to some extent against San Francisco, but owners should temper their expectations given that he directly stated that he won't get a full complement of snaps. That said, the Browns have four receivers listed as questionable heading into the contest, so Pryor could be more than just a gimmick in the offense Sunday if any of those pass catchers are sidelined.

Pryor (coach's decision) is inactive Sunday against the Bengals.

EDGE Analysis

Pryor signed with the Browns on Tuesday, but that wasn't enough time for him to get fully acquainted in the passing game, despite spending time with the organization earlier in the season. Rookie wideout Darius Jennings, who was signed off the practice squad earlier this week, will instead get the active status. If both Andrew Hawkins and Taylor Gabriel continue to miss time due to concussions, a week on the active roster for Pryor could be right around the corner.
