Terrelle Pryor apparently attempted to give the Browns one last shot at re-signing him after the receiver was offered a one-year deal by the Washington Redskins – which he ultimately signed – but was rebuffed.
Pryor reopened negotiations with Cleveland, but the team reduced the four-year deal worth $8 million annually that was on the table, a source told Mary Kay Cabot of cleveland.com.
Due to a desire to avoid locking himself into a long-term deal and because he believed he could earn more after next season, Pryor opted to sign with the Redskins, reports Cabot.
It’s not clear why the Browns decided to reduce their offer, or what exactly was the specifics of the new deal.
A source told Cabot that Pryor was hoping to receive a deal worth $15 million a year, which would have made him the third-highest paid receiver in the league, and that he wanted to return to the Browns and held out as long as possible for them to increase their offer.
