Week 17 Outlook
Terrelle Pryor signs with Redskins
The Washington Redskins and wide receiver Terrelle Pryor agreed to terms on a one-year deal.
Pryor, a converted quarterback, had an outstanding year with the Browns in 2016, his first regular season as a wide receiver. He was rewarded with a one-year, $8 million deal from the Redskins Friday. Since Washington lost Pierre Garcon and DeSean Jackson in free agency, they had a need at wide receiver and filled it with Pryor, the best available wideout on day two of the free agency signing period. He is a WR1 in Washington next season, especially if Kirk Cousins remains on the club.
Terrelle Pryor unlikely to be tagged by Browns
NFL Insider Albert Breer reports the Cleveland Browns are not "planning" on placing the franchise tag on wide receiver Terrelle Pryor this offseason. Breer later added that the Browns "would like" to get a long-term done to retain the wideout.
Pryor's future in Cleveland has ben a hot topic throughout the early stages of the offseason. Earlier reports indicated that the Browns were likely going to place the franchise tag on Pryor. However, Breer's latest report says otherwise. Both sides have shown mutual interest in getting a deal done, so it could be only a matter of time until something is worked out. Breer projects the 2017 franchise tag value for wide receivers to fall close to the $15.7 million range.
Terrelle Pryor wants to stay in Cleveland
Free agent wide receiver Terrelle Pryor has reportedly told his agents that he wants to remain in Cleveland.
"I have no problem with, just because we were 1-15 or whatever this year, coming back,'' Pryor said. "I don't mind starting fresh next year and continuing to grow, because I think it's more exciting when you're on the bottom." It is a near lock that Pryor returns to the Browns at this point, and another offseason to hone his still-raw receiving skills should help him improve upon his numbers from last year. Working against him is the uncertainty at the QB position and the presence of sophomore wide receiver Corey Coleman.
Terrelle Pryor top priority for Browns this offseason
Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports reports that the agent for free agent wide receiver Terrelle Pryor will meet with the Cleveland Browns this week to try and work on a new contract.
Pryor is the Browns' top priority this offseason, and both sides appear interested in a new deal. The team is likely to place the franchise tag on Pryor if they can't come to an agreement, so he is destined to be back in Cleveland for at least the 2017 season. He will make for a decent WR2 option next year.
Terrelle Pryor likely to be retained by Browns
NFL Insider Jason La Canfora reports the Cleveland Browns "are very likely to place the franchise tag" on wide receiver Terrelle Pryor this offseason.
Pryor, a converted quarterback now a rising stud wideout, had a breakout year at his new position in 2016. He caught 77 targets for 1,007 yards receiving and four touchdowns in 16 games played. Now that the Browns signed Jamie Collins to a lucrative extension Monday, the door is open for the team to place the franchise tender on Pryor and lock him up for at least the 2017 campaign. The Browns are rebuilding and attempting to change their losing culture under head coach Hue Jackson and soon, they'll likely have their top players on both sides of the ball signed for the upcoming season.
