Former quarterback and current Cleveland Browns wide receiver Terrelle Pryor is heading into the team's final preseason game 70-80 percent healthy while still recovering from his hamstring injury.

Suppose the Browns didn’t make any trades in the 2011 draft

Phil Taylor being cut means more than one very large professional athlete losing his job. Big Phil’s departure has become a microcosm of all that is wrong with the Browns, an indicator of years of mismanagement at the team-building level, as he was the last of the players the Browns obtained in their 2011 draft day trade with the Atlanta Falcons. Cleveland sent Atlanta the No...

Consequently, the team might be lured into dumping their second-best gunslinger on the roster.

Browns play well in dress rehearsal and Manziel spits sunflower seeds at McCown

Hey, what do you know? The Browns looked pretty pretty pretttttty good against Tampa Bay on Saturday night. All three phases looked good, and that means that this Thursday's preseason wrapup in Chicago (which I'll be lucky enough to go to) will feature absolutely nobody worth seeing. At least there's beer! (Although maybe a Terrelle Pryor sighting will make the night.) Regardless...

Travis Benjamin is going in to his fourth year in the league, and so far he has not done much during his career.

Terrelle Pryor’s future with the Cleveland Browns is on thin ice

Terrelle Pryor’s conversion from quarterback to wide receiver isn’t going as well as planned, and his chances of making the team’s final 53-man roster are slimming by the day. The big issue right now is a lingering hamstring injury that has halted his progress.

Pettine: Manziel not taking starting job from McCown

    Johnny Manziel was clearly the best quarterback on the Cleveland Browns roster Thursday night, but that does not mean he is inching closer to earning a starting role.
