Pryor (finger) said he plans to work with Kirk Cousins prior to the start of team activities, The Washington Post reports.

EDGE Analysis

Although he was glad to hear the Redskins intend to retain their quarterback, Pryor stopped shy of saying that his new team made him any kind of promise. All signs point to Cousins playing at least one more year in Washington, but it's still possible the team would consider dealing him if it's blown away by a trade offer. Such a development would be bad news for Pryor, who is set to join slot standout Jamison Crowder and 2015 first-round selection Josh Doctson (Achilles) in a new-look, high-upside Washington receiving corps that lost DeSean Jackson and Pierre Garcon in free agency. Pryor is the early favorite to serve as the new No. 1 wideout, though he should have plenty of competition for targets in an offense that also features the potent tight end duo of Jordan Reed and Vernon Davis. On the injury front, it appears Pryor, Doctson and Reed will all be available for the start of OTAs in mid-to-late April. Pryor surprisingly opted for a one-year, $8 million contract, betting on himself to earn his way to a big multi-year deal next offseason.

Pryor (finger) is signing a one-year, $8 million deal with Washington, NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports.

EDGE Analysis

Rather than cashing in on his breakout season with a multi-year deal, Pryor is betting he can back it up and get a huge contract at this time next year. His decision is a bit surprising, but he'll still be handsomely paid for his services in 2017, helping the Redskins replace free-agent departures DeSean Jackson and Pierre Garcon. The team likely envisions a wideout trio comprised of Pryor, 2016 first-round selection Josh Doctson and slot maven Jamison Crowder. It's a trio with no shortage of upside, complemented by an excellent group at tight end. Kirk Cousins, who signed his franchise tender Friday, might now be more amenable to sticking around in Washington even if he doesn't get a long-term deal. He reportedly asked the team for permission to seek a trade. Meanwhile, Pryor is still recovering from finger surgery but should be healthy long before training camp.

Pryor is visiting with the Redskins, the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

EDGE Analysis

A return to Cleveland -- while still not out of the question -- seems far less likely after the Browns signed Kenny Britt to a four-year, $32.5 million contract that includes $17 million guaranteed. The Browns have a promising wideout duo in the form of Britt and 2016 first-rounder Corey Coleman, whereas the Redskins are thin at the position after losing both DeSean Jackson and Pierre Garcon on the first day of free agency. With Jackson and Alshon Jeffery out of the picture, Pryor is arguably the top unsigned wideout, which should ensure he draws interest from teams other than the two mentioned above.

Pryor (finger) is set to become a free agent at 4 p.m. on Thursday, ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Browns opted not to place the franchise tag on Pryor, instead trying to work out a long-term deal prior to the legal tampering period. With the two sides unable to agree on terms, Pryor will have a chance to assess his value on the open market. Browns VP of football operations Sashi Brown recently said that Pryor is one of the team's offseason priorities, but Brown also said the team won't be panicked if the 27-year-old wideout ends up with another team. Coming off a 1,000-yard season in his first year as a wide receiver, Pryor won't have any trouble landing a sizable multi-year deal -- be it in Cleveland or elsewhere.

The Browns didn't franchise tag Pryor (finger), but team executive Sashi Brown calls signing him "a priority", Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

EDGE Analysis

While the Browns opted to not place the franchise tag on Pryor, they still have a week to sign him before he's officially a free agent. The team is hoping to workout a long-term contract with the breakout wideout, who had 1,007 yards and four touchdowns on 77 catches this past season in what was his first year as a wide receiver. Pryor is still recovering from the finger surgery he underwent in mid-January, and he's expected to be a full go for the start of offseason workouts in April.

The Browns don't expect to use the franchise tag on Pryor (finger), Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Browns want Pryor back, that's not in question. What matters is the price it would take to re-sign him. Should Cleveland slap Pryor with the franchise tag, they'd be on the hook to pay him north of $15 million in 2017. By comparison, Julio Jones and A.J. Green are scheduled to make $11.5 million and $10.3 million in base salary, respectively. The deadline to assign franchise tags is March 1. After that, Pryor and the Browns have until March 9 to reach a long-term deal or else the receiver will hit the open market as an unrestricted free agent. In other news, Pryor is progressing from the finger surgery he required in mid-January as the video he posted on Twitter today revealed he's now able to hold weight in his right hand. Barring any sort of setback, he should be full go for the start of offseason workouts in April regardless of whichever team he belongs to.

Pryor, who had surgery Jan. 4 to repair a torn ligament in his right middle finger, revealed Tuesday that he's expected to be in a cast for four weeks, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

EDGE Analysis

Pryor played Cleveland's final three regular season games with his finger injury, catching 14 passes on 24 targets for 149 yards over that span. Despite avoiding the sideline because of his ailment, Pryor was always expected to undergo surgery after the season to repair his problem. In doing so to start 2017, Pryor will now need to sport a cast for the next month, but he should have plenty of time to return to full health while fielding free agent offers this offseason.

Pryor will undergo surgery to repair the torn ligament in his injured finger Wednesday, Mary Kay Cabot of Cleveland.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Pryor was able to play through the finger issue during the latter portion of the 2016 season, and ultimately surpassed 1,000 yards receiving in his first campaign as a wide receiver. He's expected to rehab in Cleveland, while the injury should be a distant memory by the time training camp rolls around.

Pryor closed out the 2016 season with seven receptions (11 targets) for 94 yards during Sunday's loss to the Steelers.

EDGE Analysis

In his first season as a full-time wide receiver, Pryor greatly exceeded expectations, finishing with 77 receptions for 1,004 yards and four touchdowns, despite rather subpar quarterback play. He's set to become an unrestricted free agent in 2017, and while Cleveland would surely love to have him back, he may have other thoughts. But no matter where he ends up, he should be considered a more-than-solid fantasy wide receiver going forward.

Pryor turned five targets into three catches for 36 yards in Saturday's 20-17 win over the Chargers.

EDGE Analysis

Pryor finished second to tight end Gary Barnidge in both targets and yardage. The quarterback-turned-wide receiver has faded down the stretch with just 58 yards over the past three weeks. His poor chemistry with quarterback Robert Griffin may not be a problem in the season finale, though, as Griffin left this contest with a concussion and may not be cleared for action by then.
