Whoever Decided Washington Should Sign Terrelle Pryor Deserves a High Five

After two years of playing wide receiver for the Cleveland Browns, it seems that former National Football League quarterback Terrelle Pryor will leave Northeast Ohio to sign with the Washington Redskins in free agency.

Some feel Pryor's career as a receiver is on the rise, but Britt feels his career is on the ascension, as well. After being banned from Ohio State's program by the NCAA for his involvement in the Tattoogate scandal, Pryor entered the supplemental draft in 2011.

Pryor was drafted by the Oakland Raiders in 2012, but only saw significant time under centre in 2013 following Carson Palmer's trade to Arizona.

Cousins threw for almost 5,000 yards last season, and he set a team mark with more than 400 completions, passing for 25 TDs and 12 interceptions with a completion percentage of 67. The offer was less than what they were going to originally pay him.

It appears this is a make-good contract for Pryor, who could put himself in a position to land a more lucrative deal next offseason with a strong follow-up to his breakout 2016.

What will free agency hold for Pryor a year from now?

In 2014, Pryor said, "I don't know how to catch". I believe they have the ability and the coaching to take me to the next level which is where I am trying to go.

When it comes to cornerback-wide receiver feuds, the Giants-Redskins rivalry has things covered. Cleveland was correct in projecting a bearish market on Pryor, perhaps due to his lack of experience at receiver. "Just to help guys out and to talk or communicate with my teammates".

Even minus the Jackson/Garcon pairing, Pryor will have to compete for targets against the likes of TE Jordan Reed and up-and-coming receivers Josh Doctson and Jamison Crowder. My stance has been, and still is, that it doesn't matter how many years he's been playing wide receiver - his age is his age, and wide receivers tend to start their decline at the age of 29.

"Your feet have to be quick but you have to have body control to know where you are going and to move the defender from where you want to go", Pryor Sr. said.
