Browns are in the running for Terrelle Pryor
In the last several days, veteran wide receiver Terrelle Pryor has begun to pick up a significant amount of interest in his services around the league. This has seen him already speak with several different teams around the league.
This has seen him already speak with the likes of the Seattle Seahawks, Los Angeles Rams, San Francisco 49ers, and New York Jets. According to Mary Kay Cabot of Cleveland.com, the Browns are said to have interest in bringing back the 28-year-old.
The Browns are still in the mix for receiver Terrelle Pryor even though he’s visiting other teams, a source told cleveland.com.
Prior to this past season, he has spent two years with the Browns where he made the transition from quarterback to wide receiver putting together his breakout campaign recording 77 catches for 1,007 receiving yards and four touchdowns. He had turned down a four-year, $32.5 million deal that was instead given to Kenny Britt.
Shortly thereafter, Pryor had signed a one-year, $6 million deal with the Washington Redskins where he struggled in his lone season recording just 20 catches for 240 receiving yards and a touchdown in nine games. He had struggled to make a consistent impact with fitting into the voice while a nagging injury led to him requiring season-ending ankle surgery. It was a fry cry from the Redskins initial hopes that he could be their top receiving options.
The potential return back to the Browns could be intriguing this time around for the Pryor given that the front office has revamped the roster, especially on the offensive side of the ball. The team has acquired a few promising talents in Pro Bowl wide receiver Jarvis Landry, running back Carlos Hyde, and quarterback Tyrod Taylor.
Pryor could provide more depth and talent to their wide receiver core alongside Jarvis Landry and Josh Gordon. The Browns have more than enough financial flexibility at more than $70 million to offer him a lucrative offer that could help convince him to rejoin the team. This is certainly something to watch as Pryor nears his free agency decision.
