Terrelle Pryor claimed off waivers by Cleveland Browns
Tuesday June 23rd, 2015

The Cincinnati Bengals are reportedly upset with recently released quarterback Terrelle Pryor for tweeting videos of himself playing quarterback during full-team drills, which media members are prohibited from filming. 

"I haven't been around another player who has done that," a source from the team told "By no means did we think a player would do something like that."​

Cincinnati released Pryor last week after just five weeks with the team. He tried unsuccessfully to land a third-string quarterback job. 

"There's a reason we made the decision [to cut Pryor] that we did," the team source said. "We did what we felt was best for us."

"If I'm [another team], I have to think hard about signing him or else he might give out valuable information of theirs, too."

In move to re-brand his client as a versatile player, Pryor's agent Drew Rosenhaus said last week that Pryor would change positions from quarterback to wide receiver. Pryor had been cut by the Seattle Seahawks, Kansas City Chiefs and the Bengals in the past 12 months.  

On Monday, the Cleveland Browns appeared to take Rosenhaus' bait, claiming Pryor off waivers as a receiver

Pryor did not respond to the Bengals report, but did delete the images from his social media account about an hour after he posted them.
