Entering his sixth NFL season, former Ohio State star Terrelle Pryor looks like he might have found a formula that works for him: Getting underneath deep balls from Robert Griffin III.
Pryor, a converted wide receiver, hauled in a 50-yard touchdown last night in the Browns second preseason game.

It was the second time in as many weeks Griffin – a former Heisman winner at Baylor who is also trying to revitalize his career in Cleveland – linked up with Pryor deep down the sideline. Pryor made a diving 49-yard grab in the Browns first preseason game last week.

This is just Pryor’s second season at wide receiver, a position he switched to after he played quarterback with the Raiders from 2011-13 and then did not appear in the 2014 regular season. The 6-foot-6 Pryor definitely has the skill set, and it looks like he’ll get a real shot to make an impact in 2016 after making just one grab for 42 yards last year.
“Coach talks a lot about guys who can make plays. …I’m just trying to do my part the best I can,” he said afterward.
“I’m just trying to do my part and do it to the best I can.”
