Report: The Ravens are showing interest in Terrelle Pryor

Could the wide receiver stay in the AFC North?

NFL: Cleveland Browns at Buffalo Bills Timothy T. Ludwig-USA TODAY Sports

Terrelle Pryor will hit the market after the Browns elected not to franchise tag the wide receiver. According to Lauren Brill, a reporter for ABC affiliate WEWS in Cleveland, Pryor is thinking about a change of scenery. She lists the Ravens as somebody to watch out for.

Brill is a relatively unknown reporter on the national level, but if she's willing to put this out there, there’s likely some truth to it considering she does work in Cleveland. The Browns have over $100 million in cap room and it was widely assumed they would secure Pryor with some of that.

Pryor was drafted out of Ohio State in the 2011 Supplemental Draft. After bouncing around from team to team, Pryor made the transition from quarterback to wide receiver where he thrived in 2016 despite the Browns sub par quarterback play. He posted totals of 77 catches for 1,007 yards and four touchdowns last season.

Pryor would definitely improve the Raven’s wide receiver corps, but he may have to take a deal below market value if there is mutual interest. It’s been speculated that Pryor is seeking between $10-12 million per year, that may be too rich for the Ravens blood.
