The New York Jets have reportedly agreed to terms with former Redskins free agent WR Terrelle Pryor Sr. Washington was not expected to attempt to bring the former QB turned WR back for a second year after a disappointing season that featured drops, an early ankle injury, and a lack of rythym in the offense and with former QB Kirk Cousins.
Pryor, 28, signed a one-year deal with Washington last offseason, rejecting a multiyear offer by the Cleveland Browns after a breakout season in 2016. But the move didn’t work out for Pryor, who started at the X position but finished with only 20 catches for 240 yards and 1 touchdown in nine games.
The Redskins signed WR Paul Richardson from the Seahawks in free agency, and also re-signed Brian Quick. They will also have Josh Doctson returning for his 2nd full season, and Jamison Crowder expected to have a big year with new QB Alex Smith. Young WRs Maurice Harris and Robert Davis will also be fighting for spots, and Jay Gruden is expected bring in several more through free agency and the draft this year.
Pryor's signing with the Jets is also another free agency loss that could contribute to the Redskins getting up to four compensatory draft picks next year. The Redskins have lost C Spencer Long, OLB Trent Murphy, TE Niles Paul, , WR Ryan Grant, QB Kirk Cousins, and now Pryor. The only FA thst counts against the Redskins so far is Paul Richardson.
