It's been a strange wide receiver market and once again one of the top names opts for a one-year deals as a result. Terrelle Pryor agreed to a one-year, $8 million deal with Washington. After it lost DeSean Jackson and Pierre Garcon already in the offseason, Washington needed to add to its wide receiving corps and they've done exactly that.
Last season, Pryor burst onto the season with tremendous numbers for a quarterback to receiver convert. He finished 2016 with 140 targets, 77 receptions, 1,007 receiving yards but only four touchdowns last season. Despite consistently ugly quarterback play, Pryor's total line stood out, though the quarterback issues week to week led to some inconsistency with his numbers.
He'll see a major upgrade now with the move to Washington and should slide in as the team's No.1 wide receiver on the outside. Jordan Reed will be the top weapon in the passing game, but health is a concern for him, meanwhile Josh Doctson still must show he can stay healthy after missing much of his rookie season. Given the volume of targets he should see, a major upgrade at quarterback and playing on a prove-it deal, the opportunity to put up big numbers is there. We could certainly be looking at a great WR2 with all the factors in Pryor's favor.
