Six weeks into the NFL season, Terrelle Pryor appears to be on track to win the league's Comeback Player of the Year award.
Terrelle Pryor, the 27-year-old former quarterback turned wide receiver, continues to dominate in his transition to wideout.
On Sunday, in a 28-26 loss to the Tennessee Titans, Pryor grabbed nine passes for 75 yards and two touchdowns; it was his first multi-touchdown game.
Through six games, Pryor has 33 catches for 413 yards and three touchdowns.
The former Ohio State star is currently:
- Tied for 16th in the NFL in receiving yards
- Tied for 10th in the NFL in receptions
- Tied for 25th in the NFL in receiving yards a game
None of those rankings jump off the page, but consider:
- He plays for the Cleveland Browns. More specifically, he plays wide receiver for a Browns' offense with a revolving door of subpar quarterbacks.
- This is his first fully healthy season playing wide receiver.
Pryor is a free agent after this season. If he keeps this up, teams will be breaking down the door to offer him a big, multiyear deal.
