Ex-Raider Terrelle Pryor: My dominant season starts this week vs Oakland

In his first full season as a wide receiver last year, Terrelle Pryor caught 77 passes for 1,007 yards for the Browns.

After signing a one-year, $6 million contract with Washington in the offseason, the former Raiders quarterback was expected to put up big numbers with Kirk Cousins throwing him the ball.

But through two games, Pryor has caught just eight passes for 97 yards.

He's not worried though. In fact, he's proclaiming that he will begin his return to form this weekend against his first team.

"I am going to have a dominant season and it starts this week against Oakland," Pryor told The Athletic on Wednesday.

Kickoff between the Raiders and Washington is set for 5:30pm PT Sunday on NBC.

The former Raiders quarterback agreed to a one-year, $8 million deal with Washington, according to multiple national reports.

Pryor, who played quarterback for the Raiders from 2011 to 2013, did not play in the NFL in 2014.

He converted to wide receiver, and caught one pass for 42 yards for the Browns in 2015.

Last year, he racked up 77 catches for 1007 yards and four touchdowns with Cleveland.

The 49ers are one of five teams to reportedly show interest in signing Cleveland Browns free-agent wide receiver Terrelle Pryor.

Teams are allowed to begin negotiating with prospective free agents on Tuesday at 9 a.m. (PT). Contracts are not allowed to be signed until the official opening of the new league year on Thursday at 1 p.m. Pryor's agent is Drew Rosenhaus.

In his first full seasons as a wide receiver, Pryor caught 77 passes for 1,007 yards and four touchdowns with the Browns. He spent his first three NFL seasons as a quarterback with the Raiders.

Pryor is drawing interest from the 49ers, Pittsburgh, New York Giants, Tennessee and Philadelphia, league sources told Mary Kay Cabot of cleveland.com.

The Browns remain interested in re-signing Pryor. The team opted to not tag him as their franchise player.

“Terrelle was a huge piece of what we did a year ago,” Browns coach Hue Jackson said at the NFL Scouting Combine. “Obviously, we’re working through that. And it has to work both ways for all involved – for him, fur us and hopefully it will. Hopefully we can get that done soon.”

The 49ers signed slot receiver Jeremy Kerley to a three-year extension on Saturday. The team is also expected to pursue Washington free-agent receiver Pierre Garcon. Chicago’s Alshon Jeffery is expected to be the top receiver on the free-agent market.

After quarterback Colin Kaepernick opted out of his contract on Friday, the 49ers are $90.6 million under the salary cap, according to the NFL Players Association.
