The Redskins have signed wide receiver Terrelle Pryor to a one-year contract, as first reported by JP Finlay of CSN. The Redskins subsequently confirmed the move on social media.

The signing adds to a wide receiver corps that was severely depleted yesterday by the free agency defections of DeSean Jackson and Pierre Garçon.
The one-year deal is worth $8 million, per multiple media reports. But not all is guaranteed.
Terrelle Pryor's 1 year deal is really only a $6M commitment. The other $2M are available via incentives. $3M signing bonus— Jason La Canfora (@JasonLaCanfora) March 10, 2017
Pryor came out of Ohio State in 2011 as a quarterback. He joined the Browns in 2015 and they converted him into a wide receiver.
Last year was his first season that he was a full-time pass cather and he, well, caught on. Playing with three different quarterbacks, Pryor had 77 receptions for 1,007 yards and four touchdowns.
