Pryor's (ankle) one-year deal with the Jets is for $4.5 million, including $2 million guaranteed, Tom Pelissero of NFL.com reports.
EDGE Analysis
Pryor will try to prove himself on a one-year deal for a second straight season, after falling far shy of expectations on a $6 million contract with the Redskins in 2017. The new deal isn't fully guaranteed like last year's, but it's still a sizable contract that suggests the Jets expect Pryor to bounce back from November arthroscopic surgery and be a significant contributor. Between Robby Anderson's legal issues, Jermaine Kearse's contract and Quincy Enunwa's recovery from a major neck injury, the team isn't quite sure what it'll have in terms of veteran wideouts heading into training camp. Pryor hopes to recapture his form of 2016, when he caught 77 of 140 targets for 1,007 yards (7.2 per target) and four touchdowns as one of the few bright spots in a pathetic Cleveland offense. He'll be catching passes from either Josh McCown, Teddy Bridgewater or a rookie first-round pick.

Pryor (ankle) reached terms on a contract with the Jets, ESPN.com's Rich Cimini reports.
EDGE Analysis
Pryor was a complete bust last season while playing for Washington on a one-year, $6 million contract, catching only 20 of 37 targets for 240 yards and a touchdown in nine games before landing on injured reserve with an ankle injury that required arthroscopic surgery in late November. He'll need to compete for a starting job this time around, hoping to eventually recapture the magic of his 2016 breakout in Cleveland. A crowded depth chart could clear up a bit in the coming months, depending on what happens with Robby Anderson's legal issues, Jermaine Kearse's contract and Quincy Enunwa's return from a major neck injury.

Pryor is closing in on a deal with the Jets, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
EDGE Analysis
Pryor was reportedly going to sign with either the Seahawks or the Jets, with the latter ending up as his final destination. The former college quarterback signed a one-year, $6 million contract with the Redskins last offseason following a breakthrough 1000-plus yard receiving season with the Browns in 2016, but Pryor struggled. He posted only 20 catches for 240 yards and a single touchdown in what was supposed to be a high-powered Washington offense. The Jets will be hoping that 28-year-old can return to form and boost a New York pass offense that ranked 24th in the league in 2017.

Pryor (ankle) is expected to sign with either the Jets or Seahawks, Mary Kay Cabot of Cleveland.com reports.
EDGE Analysis
Pryor paid a visit to Seattle over the weekend, but another suitor has materialized in the intervening period. After exploding onto the scene with 77 catches for 1,007 yards and four touchdowns in 2016, he earned a one-year, $6 million prove-it deal from the Redskins last offseason. That said, his time in the nation's capitol didn't go as planned, as his usage waned, perhaps due to an ankle injury that eventually required arthroscopic surgery on Nov. 20. Pryor's next landing spot likely will depend on whether he wants to work with a top QB (the Seahawks) or takes on a large cap hit (the Jets).

Pryor (ankle) will visit the Seahawks on Sunday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
EDGE Analysis
Coming a breakout 2016 campaign, Pryor signed a one-year, $8 million contract at this time last offseason. He proceeded to catch only 20 passes for 240 yards and a touchdown in nine games with the Redskins, eventually landing on injured reserve due to a balky ankle that required arthroscopic surgery in late November. The 28-year-old wideout likely is close to full strength at his point, but he'll nonetheless have to settle for a much smaller contract this time around. The Seahawks have an obvious need, looking to replace both Paul Richardson and Jimmy Graham. The team did sign Jaron Brown on Friday, but he'll likely slot in fourth or fifth on the depth chart at wide receiver.

Pryor (ankle) recorded 20 receptions on 37 targets for 240 yards and one touchdown over nine games for the Redskins in 2017.
EDGE Analysis
The Redskins had high expectations for Pryor in 2017 after the quarterback-turned-wideout cranked out a 1,000-yard campaign during his first full season at the position in 2016 with the Browns. However, Pryor failed to make much of an impact early on -- largely due to his numerous dropped passes -- and was ultimately benched mid-season before Washington placed him on injured reserve with an ankle injury in November. The Ohio State product will now be an unrestricted free agent at the end of the league year and seems highly unlikely to return to Washington given the ascension of 2016 first-rounder Josh Doctson.

The Redskins placed Pryor (ankle) on injured reserve Tuesday, Stephen Czarda of the Redskins' official site reports.
EDGE Analysis
The transaction became official one day after Pryor underwent arthroscopic surgery to fix the ankle issue, which has hampered him for much of the season. The injury -- along with Pryor's penchant for dropping passes -- resulted in his unexpected fall down the depth chart before the Redskins decided to shut him down for good, with the wideout finishing his lone campaign in Washington with 20 receptions for 240 yards and a touchdown. He'll likely head elsewhere upon hitting free agency this offseason and could have some bounce-back appeal if he proves healthy and lands in a favorable passing environment.

Pryor (ankle) will be placed on injured reserve, John Keim of ESPN.com reports.
EDGE Analysis
Pryor missed Sunday's 34-31 loss to the Saints and then had arthroscopic surgery Monday to address an ankle injury that's been nagging him for most of the season. The decision to place him on injured reserve come as no surprise, given that he'd been demoted to a part-time role in recent weeks, essentially serving as the No. 4 receiver. Pryor likely is on board with the decision, hoping to get back to full health before he hits free agency again in the offseason. He'll likely have to settle for another one-year contract, or else accept a massive salary reduction on a multi-year deal. When talking with other teams, Pryor presumably will point to the ankle injury as the primary reason things didn't work out in Washington. Given that he wasn't even listed on the injury report most weeks, there's ample reason for skepticism.

Pryor is having arthroscopic surgery on his injured ankle Monday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
EDGE Analysis
Pryor has already missed one game and figures to miss a few more, though the procedure won't necessarily rule him out for the rest of the season. Given that the Redskins are falling out of contention and he's set to hit free agency again in the offseason, Pryor won't have much incentive to risk a late-season return if he doesn't have full confidence in his ankle. It's possible he's put on a Washington uniform for the last time. If so, it was as disappointing of a season as anyone could've imagined. He may have to settle for another prove-it deal in free agency.

Pryor (foot/ankle) admitted that he's worried about his status for the rest of the season, ESPN.com's John Keim reports. "I'm concerned," said Pryor. "I don't want to do surgery. [Anderson] said the stuff he saw in there, he couldn't believe I was still playing on it. ... Hopefully they don't put me on [injured reserve] and I can come back and help them do something."
EDGE Analysis
Pryor originally suffered the injury Week 2 but wasn't listed on the injury report until Week 9. He's now saying it's been an issue all along, which raises some questions about whether player and team have made honest use of the injury reports. In any case, Pryor missed practice Thursday and Friday and has now been ruled out for Sunday's game in New Orleans. A recent MRI apparently was concerning, as he's scheduled to meet with Dr. Robert Anderson on Monday in Charlotte. Given that he's already tumbled down the depth chart and is set to hit free agency again after the season, Pryor figures to prioritize his long-term health over his short-term availability.
