After a breakout season in 2016 in which the converted wide receiver recorded a 1,000-yard campaign, the Washington Redskins have added
After losing DeSean Jackson and Pierre Garçon left Washington to sign contracts with other NFC teams, the Washington Redskins on Friday announced the signing of Terrelle Pryor Sr.
He has played for the Oakland Raiders and Cleveland Browns in regular season action and has also had offseason stints with the Seattle Seahawks, Kansas City Chiefs and Cincinnati Bengals after originally being selected in the 2011 NFL Supplemental Draft.
For his career, the 6-foot-4, 223 pounder has appeared in 34 regular season games, collecting 79 receptions for 1,071 yards and four touchdowns.
Additionally, he has rushed for 647 yards and four touchdowns while throwing for 1,994 yards and nine touchdowns to 12 interceptions.
Despite dealing with inconsistencies from the Browns’ quarterback situation, Pryor Sr. recorded a 1,000-yard season in 2016.
In six different games, Pryor Sr. recorded double-digit reception totals and also had three 100-yard performances.
Pryor Sr.’s first touchdown of the season came against the Redskins at FedExField on Oct. 2 in a 24-20 victory for Washington. This came one week after a 10-catch, 144-yard performance against the Miami Dolphins.
Pryor Sr. caught one pass for 42 yards during the 2015 season. His first career reception came during the 2012 season when he hauled in a 22-yard reception against the Carolina Panthers.
The Jeannette, Pa., native appeared in three games at the quarterback position for the Raiders in 2012, connecting on 14-of-30 pass attempts for 155 yards and two touchdowns to one interception.
In 2013, he appeared in 11 games with nine starts, throwing for 1,798 yards and seven touchdowns along with two rushing touchdowns.
Against the Pittsburgh Steelers that season, Pryor Sr. recorded the long rushing play by a quarterback in NFL history, taking the first play from scrimmage in the game 93 yards for a score.
