Jets Releasing WR Terrelle Pryor

Adam Schefter reports that the Jets are releasing WR Terrelle Pryor on Saturday.

Schefter adds that Pryor is expected to miss two weeks after sustaining a tear in his groin and the Jets are interested in re-signing him once he is healthy. However, other teams are also “likely” to be interested in Pryor.

Pryor, 29, 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 in 2016 before he departed for a one-year, $6 million contract with the Redskins.

Pryor signed a one-year contract with the Jets this offseason worth $4.5 million with $2 million guaranteed.

In 2018, Pryor has appeared in six games and recorded 14 receptions for 235 yards receiving (16.8 YPC) and scored two touchdowns.
