Browns Meeting With Terrelle Pryor’s Agents To Work On Long-Term Extension

Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports that the Browns are scheduled to meet with Terrelle Pryor‘s agents at the Scouting Combine to get an agreement in place on a long-term extension.

The Browns could still use their franchise tag on Pryor. However, previous reports have said that’s not going to happen.

The franchise tag would run the Browns around $15 million for the 2017 season fully guaranteed. Although, it would also buy them some to get a long-term extension in place.

A few weeks ago, Cabot reported Pryor had “instructed” his agents that he “wants to stay in Cleveland” and to get a deal done with the Browns and his agents were expected to have “strong discussions” with the team.

“I know this is an important month,” Pryor said last week. “But I do love being with the Browns and like I said before, this thing isn’t about joining a different team because a different team’s good.

“That’s not what it’s about. I love the building process here. I started out in my career never coming in the front door. I’ve alway got to go in the back.”

Pryor, 27, was taken by the Raiders in the third round of the 2011 supplemental draft. He lasted a little over three years in Oakland before he was traded to the Seahawks for a seventh-round pick that ultimately became DB Jonathan Dowling.

Pryor briefly played for the Chiefs and Bengals before later being claimed off of waivers by the Browns. Cleveland elected to cut him loose to make room for RB Robert Turbin last year before bringing him back.

The Browns signed him to a one-year, $1.67 million restricted deal this last March.

In 2016, Pryor appeared in all 16 games and caught 77 passes for 1007 yards receiving and five total touchdowns for the Browns. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 31 wide receiver out of 115 qualifying players.
