Last season Terrelle Pryor went over the 1,000 yards receiving mark with the Cleveland Browns but next season Pryor will wear a Redskins jersey. Pryor signed a 1 year $8 million dollar contract with Washington and now Pryor will fill the void that DeSean Jackson left behind when he signed with the Tampa Buccaneers. Pryor isn’t quite as fast as Jackson but he is a much bigger receiver. That can help Pryor do some things that Jackson can’t do but Jackson has much more experience than Terrelle Pryor does. So it will interesting to see if Terrelle Pryor can come into Jay Gruden’s system and be an elite player like he was last season in Cleveland? It will also be interesting to see how Pryor responds to playing with Kirk Cousins? Pryor has never played receiver with a quarterback as competent as Kirk Cousins is. That should greatly improves Pryor’s chances for a big season and will ultimately give Pryor the best chance at a mega-contract next off-season. So as far as optimizing his own talents goes, Terrelle Pryor made an excellent moving choosing to catch passes from Cousins. Now if the rumors end up being true and Cousins gets traded, Pryor would be out of luck but right now it doesn’t seem like that is going to happen. Washington’s wide outs will have a chance be outstanding in 2017 especially if Josh Doctson can emerge in to a big contributor. Grouping together Pryor, Doctson, Jamison Crowder, and Jordan Reed should yield great results for the Redskins and expect Washington’s aerial attack to be as potent as ever next season. Both Cousins and Pryor are playing for big contract extensions and that will be extra motivation to come out and perform. The Redskins definitely got better by adding Terrelle Pryor when it’s all said and done.
