Browns wide receiver Terrelle Pryor doesn’t want to be handed roster spot with preseason finale looming

The idea of making the Browns’ 53-man roster on potential alone doesn’t sit well with wide receiver-in-training Terrelle Pryor as he fights a nagging hamstring injury.After all, the former Ohio State University standout is not accustomed to being handed anything in life, not even parental guidance.
