Pryor departs the Browns after a strong 2016 season that saw him catch 77 passes for 1,007 yards and four touchdowns in his first full season at the wide receiver position.
The Browns elected to let Pryor test the free agency waters after deciding not to place the franchise tag on the 27-year-old, a move that would have cost the team $16 million dollars.
Last week at the NFL's Scouting Combine in Indianapolis, Browns Executive Vice President for Football Operations Sashi Brown said the following about keeping Pryor, "I think we'd like to have Terrelle back and that's a priority for us. That said, we're not going to panic if he's not back, also. But he’s a good player, works hard, we think he fits in our system, had a lot of success with our coaches, so we think this is a great place for him to continue his career.”
The Browns prepared for the departure of Pryor by signing free agent wideout Kenny Britt on Thursday. The reported terms of Britt's deal was $32.5 million dollars over four years.
Britt caught 68 passes for 1,002 yards and five touchdowns for the Rams in 2016.
