Columbus radio station 105.7 asked NFL free agent receiver and convenience store proprietor Brian Hartline on Wednesday morning about Terrelle Pryor, his former Ohio State and Cleveland Browns teammate.

The Browns waived Hartline after one year with the team earlier this year, in part due to Pryor's development. It would seem Hartline, who doubted Pryor's ability to switch to wide receiver from the beginning, is still bitter about Pryor's ascension at Ohio State and in the NFL.

Hartline isn't the first former teammate to criticize Pryor. Minnesota Vikings offensive lineman Alex Boone said he was "shocked" to learn Pryor was still in the league earlier this year.

Pryor said the hate "blindsided" him before refusing to lash out at Boone. He'll probably take the high road with Hartline, too.

Swiping at Pryor wasn't the only thing on Hartline's mind, however. After working out with Ohio State during Fiesta Bowl preparation, Hartline said Buckeye fans should be excited about backup QB Dwayne Haskins: 

Pryor and the Browns play Joey Bosa and the San Diego Chargers on Saturday in Cleveland. I have no idea what Hartline has planned for this weekend.

After this story was published, Hartline weighed in on Twitter:
