The San Francisco 49ers are among the teams trying to sign free agent wide receiver Terrelle Pryor, according to Mike Silver of NFL Network. The other teams include the Los Angeles Rams and Cleveland Browns.


The 49ers were among the teams reportedly interested in signing the Pryor (28 years old) as a free agent a year ago. He signed a one-year, $8 million deal with the Washington Redskins on March 10, 2017.

Pryor registered 20 receptions for 240 yards with a touchdown in Washington last year before his season ended early due to an ankle injury he had been dealing with since a Week 2 game against the Los Angeles Rams. He was placed on injured reserve on November 21, 2017, after nine game appearances and two starts.

Pryor (6-4, 228), who played college football at Ohio State, was a third-round draft pick by the Oakland Raiders in 2011. Following his three seasons in Oakland, he bounced around from team-to-team as a quarterback before being claimed off waivers by Cleveland on June 22, 2015.

Pryor was waived by Cleveland on September 10, 2015, and had a workout with the 49ers that October, but San Francisco opted not to sign him. He re-signed with the Browns two months later. The quarterback turned wide receiver had a breakout year with Cleveland in 2016 when he registered 77 receptions for 1,007 yards, four touchdowns, and just four drops that season in 16 games with 15 starts.
