Terrelle Pryor was awarded to the Browns.

Fantasy Impact: Pryor moved to WR after being released by the Bengals as a quarterback. DB Landon Feichter was let go to make room for Pryor. With no wideout depth, it makes lots of sense for the Browns to take a chance on him. Considering that Pryor's competitors are Taylor Gabriel, Brian Hartline, Andrew Hawkins and Vince Mayle, Pryor has a shot at carving out a nice role for himself this season.

Fantasy Impact: Pryor has given up the dream of being an NFL quarterback and will attempt to put his athleticism to use as a wide receiver. The Browns still do not have a gamebreaker at the position, but it remains to be seen if Pryor can actually play receiver at this level. Current offensive coordinator John DeFilippo was Pryor's quarterback coach in Oakland in 2013.

Fantasy Impact: It's merely a move to stay in the NFL. After recently being released by the Bengals, Pryor no longer thinks he can make it in this league as a QB. His 4.4 speed and large size (6-foot-5, 235 lbs.) give him the body the play either tight end or wide receiver. He did catch two touchdowns at Ohio State, so there's that. There will be some teams interested in him.

Fantasy Impact: This either means one of two things, the Chiefs plan on cutting capable, but relatively expensive backup QB Chase Daniel, or they plan on using Pryor as a WR or TE. With the signing of Pryor, the Chiefs have five QBs on the roster in Pryor, Alex Smith, Chase Daniel, rookie 5th rounder Aaron Murray, and developmental project Tyler Bray. Pryor now gets to work with a coach in Andy Reid who has a history of maximizing the talent of his quarterbacks, but will have to beat out long odds to be fantasy relevant.

The Giants worked out QB Terrelle Pryor this afternoon in East Rutherford, NJ. He was worked out as a QB, but may have also been worked out as a WR, given the Giants' depleted WR corps. (Source: Art Stapleton on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Pryor would hold no fantasy value were he to be signed by the Giants and used as a third string QB. Were he to be signed and used as a third WR, he could potentially share time with Preston Parker or leapfrog him on the WR depth chart and have some slight value in 14 team/deeper leagues.

Seattle released Terrelle Pryor Friday night prior to final cut down day. The Seahawks traded a 7th round pick to Oakland this offseason to acquire the athletic QB, but with such a deep roster and a veteran backup in Tarvaris Jackson, there was no room for Pryor. (Source: Ian Rapaport on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Pryor showed flashes this preseason and with the state of some quarterback rooms across the league, he may have done enough to get a shot on another squad. When given the opportunity to start last season for the Raiders, Pryor averaged nearly 15 fantasy points per game, which was better than Jay Cutler. If Pryor were to get an opportunity, say in St. Louis for instance, he would certainly be a valuable fantasy asset with his world class running ability. Owners should have Pryor on their radar and if he ends up in a good spot, he would certainly be worth a waiver wire claim a few weeks into the season.

Offensive Coordinator Darrell Bevell praised QB Terrelle Pryor, stating "He's come along really well, he's learned really fast, been impressed with that and how he's been able to pick it up and we will just continue to let him play and see how far he can come." (Source: The Associated Press)

Fantasy Impact: Pryor has had a few jaw-dropping runs thus-far in the preseason, and has shown some touch as a passer. While he has 0 value in re-draft leagues, it seems that Pryor is picking up the system, and has taken to Seattle well. Players with Pryor's skill-set don't come along very often, and if he continues to progress, he could become a future fantasy contributor.

In his "Final 53-Man Roster" prediction, Josh Davis of 12thmanrising.com has Terrelle Pryor headed to the practice squad. Davis also sees Tavaris Jackson winning the backup job, and B.J. Daniels being cut. (Source: 12thmanrising.com)

Fantasy Impact: Davis believes Pryor will pass through waivers because "teams will steer clear of his expiring contract". While Pryor will be irrelevant barring cataclysmic QB injuries in 2014, his play in 2013 proved that Pryor can be fantasy relevant due to his scrambling ability. While Pryor profiles as a long-term backup plan for quarterback Russell Wilson, time on the practice-squad may convince Pryor that his ultimate NFL position is not QB, but more of a slash player. In summary, its safe to ignore Pryor in 2014, but keep an eye out for him should an opportunity arise.
