Terrelle Pryor to give 'slash player deal a chance' with Browns

Terrelle Pryor used the words "slash player" Tuesday to describe his role with the Cleveland, an interesting choice given the Browns were adamant he would work only at receiver when training camp opens next month.

Pryor hinted otherwise in an interview posted on Triblive.com.

"I'm going to give this slash player deal a chance," Pryor said.

That raises the possibility that the former Ohio State quarterback will be working at positions other than receiver for the Browns.

The "slash" role was developed by former Pittsburgh Steeler Kordell Stewart, who spent his pre-quarterback days as a receiver/quarterback/running back -- thus the slash designation.

"I just want to play football," Pryor told Trib Total Media. "I'm a playmaker, and I believe if I can touch the ball, I can go to the house, especially if I have space. This should definitely open up some opportunities."

Pryor also said he will give his all when working at receiver, pointing out he called Steelers Pro Bowl wideout Antonio Brown after he was released by the Cincinnati Bengals on June 18. Pryor will work out with Brown and Randy Moss before the Browns begin training camp in late July.

The Browns claimed Pryor on waivers June 22 after the Bengals had released him.
