CLEVELAND – All the hoopla about the Browns and new WR/QB Terrelle Pryor is over, as sources indicate he’s been waived – 3 days before the opener against the Jets.
ProFootballTalk.com first reported the news, and the Akron Beacon Journal also reported the story.
Pryor was waived to make room on the 53-man roster for former Seattle Seahawks running back Robert Turbin.
The Browns claimed Turbin off waivers Thursday.
He was let go by the Seahawks Wednesday off injured reserve after reaching an injury settlement.
Reports say that the running back still is nursing an ankle sprain and won’t be able to play for a few weeks.
Last year Turbin had 74 carries for 310 yards (4.2 average).
Pryor had a hamstring injury in camp, and despite making the roster was listed as the 4th WR on the team.
