If the Cleveland Browns fail to get a deal done with Terrelle Pryor, the Los Angeles Rams should consider signing the wide receiver.
When it comes to offseason needs, providing Jared Goff with more effective wide receivers is one of the top priorities for the Los Angeles Rams, and rightfully so after seeing how much the quarterback struggled in seven starts as a rookie. Depending on what happens with the Cleveland Browns, one player to keep an eye on at wide receiver may be Terrelle Pryor.
During his first full season as a wide receiver, Pryor was simply phenomenal for the Browns after catching 77 passes for 1,007 yards with four touchdowns. Of course, the circumstances were difficult for Pryor considering that Cleveland experienced plenty of their own issues resulting in a 1-15 season, but that hasn’t stopped the wideout from remaining loyal to his team.
Numerous reports have indicated over the last few weeks how Pryor would prefer to get a long-term deal done with the Browns, but if the team avoids hitting him with the franchise tag, it would be interesting to see what other offers would be coming his way. After all of those years trying to make it as a starting quarterback in the league, Pryor seems to have finally found his calling in the NFL as a wide receiver, and the best part is he still has plenty of gas left in the tank since he’s only turning 28 this summer.

It may seem like a long shot at the moment, but if there was any chance of Cleveland failing to reach an agreement with Pryor over a long-term deal, Los Angeles shouldn’t waste any time with attempting to bring him on board for the 2017 season. With his size and strength, there’s no question Pryor would have an immediate impact for the Rams in the passing game, and would be a major upgrade over their current No. 1 wideout in Tavon Austin, who may be dealing with some frustration of his own with the organization.
