Browns WR Terrelle Pryor says he would “love” to re-sign with the Browns “if Hue Jackson’s here.”
“I respect him very highly and if Hue Jackson’s here, I’d love to stay here,’‘ Pryor told Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer on Thursday. “I want to be here if Hue’s going to be here for a while, because I know this is a building process — and it’s not really. We’re right there. We’re competing with everybody, we’ve just got to put teams away and I’d like to be where Hue’s at.’‘
It will be interesting to see how the rest of the year goes for Pryor, as he could cash in as an unrestricted free agent if he’s able to continue to build on his impressive performance last week.
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. Cleveland elected to cut him loose to make room for Robert Turbin last year before bringing him back.
The Browns signed him to a one-year, $1.67 million restricted deal this past March, which means he’ll be an unrestricted free agent next year.
In 2016, Pryor has appeared in three games and caught 14 passes for 244 yards receiving to go along with 21 yards rushing and a touchdown.
