WR Pryor, Jets closing in on deal

Terrelle Pryor Welcomed To New York Jets By Defensive Back Jamal Adams

Nothing developed since then and Pryor agreed to terms on a deal with the New York Jets on Thursday, according to multiple reports.

The Redskins nabbed him, but injuries held him out of seven games as he was limited to just 20 catches for 240 yards.

The specifics of the contract have not been released as of yet, but after Pryor's last season with the Washington Redskins under a one-year, $8 million deal, it's assumed that his contract with the Jets will not break the bank.

In what was only his second season as a full-time wide receiver in the NFL, Pryor had 77 receptions for 1,007 yards and four touchdowns in 2016 for the Cleveland Browns.

Transitioned to wide receiver in Cleveland, Pryor was drafted into the league as a quarterback.

The Jets are taking a flier on Terrelle Pryor.

If he does sign with the Jets, Pryor joins a NY franchise that is still continuing to rebuild.

With so much anticipation it was easy to say that Pryor's lone season in Washington was a disappointment.

After a disappointing 2017 season with the Washington Redskins, Terrelle Pryor will look to start fresh in new surroundings.

It's why the Jets had competition with the Seattle Seahawks and Browns for the pass catcher's services as Pryor visited the former prior to a meeting with the Jets. Meanwhile, Quincy Enunwa is also set to return after missing the entire year with a neck injury.

However, it's with a Jets team that ranked 24th in passing a season ago.

While Pryor isn't a marquee name, this may not be the time for the Jets to make a big investment in the receiver position.

The Browns have also expressed interest in former Jaguars receiver Allen Hurns, who was released by Jacksonville this week, but they haven't set up a visit. In 2015, he made the move to wide receiver, appearing in three games and recording one catch for 42 yards.
