Terrelle Pryor has been a sparkplug for the lackluster Browns this season, providing some much-needed positivity in an otherwise lost season. His transition from quarterback to wide receiver hasn’t been seamless, but it’s been just about as smooth as you can expect from a player in his second year of the switch.
Through 12 games, Pryor has 62 receptions for 855 yards and four touchdowns. He’s currently eighth in the NFL in yards, trailing the likes of Odell Beckham Jr. by just 60 in that department. Pryor still isn’t satisfied, though.
“I could be so much better it’s not even funny,” Pryor said, via Ohio.com. “Some plays that I’ve missed or some plays that I could’ve made off of that inexperience, I would say, my numbers, I may be over 1,000 [receiving yards] already, way beyond.”
Pryor has undoubtedly been the Browns’ best player this season, and it’s not even close. Gary Barnidge is second on the team with 468 yards, just over half of Pryor’s total. And even though Pryor is arguably a top-12 receiver in the NFL right now, he believes he’s part of the reason they’re 0-12.
“Am I happy about the little success I’m having? Yeah. I mean that’s everybody. You’d be stupid for somebody to sit up here and say they don’t care about them being successful or doing something well,” Pryor said. “But I feel there’s so much more that I could do well that I feel like I’m part of the reason we’re 0-12. That’s how I think of it. That’s what pushes me every day to try to have a perfect game. … That’s what I’m chasing.”
