Browns' Pryor more confident he can switch to wide receiver

BEREA, Ohio (AP) After a few practices with the Browns, Terrelle Pryor believes it's ''very realistic'' he can make a successful switch from NFL quarterback to wide receiver.

Pryor says his confidence has grown in the early stages of his unique transition.

The former Oakland quarterback has impressed Cleveland's coaches and teammates with his skills. He returned to his QB roots during Tuesday's practice, throwing a wobbly touchdown pass on a trick play to wide receiver Travis Benjamin.

Joking about his pass, Pryor says ''it was a duck, but it was a completion.''

Pryor says his hamstring tightened during practice and that it's possible he could sit out a day to rest. The former Ohio State star says he's looking forward to the team's scrimmage Friday in Columbus.
