Terrelle Pryor Sr. took another step closer Tuesday to his inevitable 2016 Pro Bowl berth when the Cleveland Browns named him a starting wide receiver for their Week 1 contest in Philadelphia against the Eagles.

Pryor will wide up across from Corey Coleman, the former Baylor wide receiver the Browns selected with the 15th overall pick in the 2016 NFL Draft. 

Former Auburn receiver Ricardo Lewis and former UCLA receiver Jordan Payton will serve as Pryor's backups as fellow receiver Josh Gordon serves a four-game suspension to start the season.

Though it appears the Browns appear content to finish the season 0-16, Pryor did show chemistry with new quarterback Robert Griffin III.

The Eagles host the Browns Sunday at 1 p.m. ET on CBS.
