Racing downfield after cruising past the cornerback, Terrelle Pryor dove forward and grasped the ball with his fingertips as he fell to the turf.

Fans watching at training camp cheered the 50-yard reception, as Pryor got up from the ground and spiked the ball to the turf, before jogging back downfield and bumping chests with Browns quarterback Robert Griffin III.

The excitement emanating from Pryor was evident, as it has been for entirety of his second training camp with the Browns.

After a year spent struggling with the transition from passer to pass-catcher, he's finally starting to feel like a real wide receiver.

Pryor initially made the move from quarterback to receiver in training camp with Cleveland a year ago, but had a nagging hamstring strain that kept him out of all but one exhibition game.

The Browns added Pryor to the 53-man roster out of camp, but cut him before the team's first regular-season game, only to bring him back for the final five games of the season.

After the roller-coaster season, Pryor spent time this summer working on his skills as a wide receiver with former Vikings star Randy Moss and current Browns quarterback Josh McCown in Charlotte, N.C.
