Browns Sign WR Terrelle Pryor, Place QB Josh McCown On I.R.


The Cleveland Browns announced that they’ve officially signed WR Terrelle Pryor and placed QB Josh McCown on season-ending injured reserve Wednesday.

McCown, 36, signed a three-year, $14 million contract that included 6.25 million guaranteed to go along with another $6 million in incentives. He’ll make a base salary of $2.25 million this season and another $4.375 million (2016) and $3.625 million (2017) over the remainder of the agreement.

McCown’s 2015 season ends with him appearing eight games and throwing for 2,109 yards while completing 63.7 percent of his passes to go along with 12 touchdwons and four interceptions.


Mary Kay Cabot reports that the Browns are signing WR Terrelle Pryor to a contract on Tuesday.

  • Cabot adds that Pryor was set to meet with the Bears today before the Browns signed him to a contract.

Pryor, 26, 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 Jonathan Dowling.

Pryor briefly played for the Chiefs and Bengals before later being claimed off of waivers by the Browns.

However, Cleveland elected to cut him loose to make room for Robert Turbin, who was claimed off of waivers a few months ago.

Since becoming available, Pryor has worked out for the Jets, Seahawks, Patriot, 49ers and Giants.
