(Photo by Mitchell Leff/Getty Images)Former Ohio State and Cleveland Browns wide receiver Brian Hartline is apparently not a believer in Terrelle Pryor as a No. 1 wideout.Hartline appeared on 105.7 The Zone in Columbus this morning to talk about the Browns. When asked about Pryor potentially being paid like a No. 1 wide receiver, Hartline was less than complimentary.on Terrelle Pryor, @BrianHartline says: What is he? Is he a No. 1 (WR)? God, I hope not. With a No. 1, I want to know what I’m getting…— 105.7 The Zone (@1057TheZone) December 21, 2016″…day in and day out. With him, I don’t know what I’m getting.”— 105.7 The Zone (@1057TheZone) December 21, 2016On Pryor, @BrianHartline says, “If I’m giving a guy a contract, I want to know he’s a building block. I don’t see him as a building block.”— 105.7 The Zone (@1057TheZone) December 21, 2016Hartline and Pryor overlapped for one year in Columbus and played together last season on the Browns. Cleveland released the veteran Hartline in part because of how impressive Pryor was, so several have speculated there is bad blood here.Hartline, however, denied that was the case to several Twitter users who criticized his comments.@TylerEPalisin9 @SportsBoyTony @TerrellePryor there is no problem. All I said was It would be a mistake to pay him #1 WR $.— Brian Hartline (@brianhartline) December 21, 2016@TylerEPalisin9 they do have a choice… #1 wideouts get 8+ mil a year…— Brian Hartline (@brianhartline) December 21, 2016@TylerEPalisin9 @SportsBoyTony @TerrellePryor But I do hope someone gives it to him. I just don’t think it should be the browns— Brian Hartline (@brianhartline) December 21, 2016@BrownsChalkTalk @1057TheZone there is zero tension. I am speaking on the ability to build a Browns team. Not on the development of TP— Brian Hartline (@brianhartline) December 21, 2016@11W I have a lot of respect for what TP has done so far. I think he has positioned himself to grow as a NFL WR. Now we need every year.— Brian Hartline (@brianhartline) December 21, 2016The 27-year-old Pryor has been one of the lone bright spots for an 0-14 Browns team this season.In his first full season at wide receiver, he has reeled in 67 passes for 877 yards and four touchdowns.last_img read more
