Agent WR Pryor to land with Jets

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

The New York Jets have signed free-agent wide receiver Terrelle Pryor, a deal coming together late Thursday night as first reported by NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

It was always unlikely that Terrelle Pryor wasn't going to return to the Washington Redskins after the 2017 season. He was the starting quarterback for the Ohio State Buckeyes from 2008 to 2010, and was drafted by the Oakland Raiders in the third round of the 2011 NFL Supplemental Draft. Past year with the Redskins he battled an ankle injury before undergoing arthroscopic surgery, he was place on I.R.in November. He managed just 20 passes for 240 yards and one touchdown. He visited both teams back-to-back at the start of the week.

The Jets offered Pryor, 28, far more money than the Browns were willing to pay.

Also consider Pryor was 82nd in catch percentage (55 percent) among the 89 players who had at least 50 receptions in 2016, per Pro Football Reference.

That leaves the Seahawks still looking to fill out their receiving corps and specifically in terms of finding a big receiver.

There's no question the Jets are assuming some risk by signing Pryor, but his terrible 2017 will help offset some of that.

Dorsey had already made it clear that the Browns would be open to trading their number one pick - and the Jets came calling.

Last season, Pryor only played in nine games for Washington and was sent to injured reserve after Week 11. Pryor can line up opposite Jermaine Kearse, with Robby Anderson in the slot.

With the Jets, Pryor would have a chance to win the No. 1 job at receiver. That move would be better when the team is more sure of what it has at quarterback. Clearly, the Jets want to improve in 2018, but they're also keeping an eye to the future.

The fit in NY could be a good one for Pryor. Like the Jets, they could look to draft a franchise quarterback.
