49ers among teams showing interest in WR Terrelle Pryor

The San Francisco 49ers will be in the market for a wide receiver in free agency and they are reportedly among the teams showing interest in Cleveland Browns WR Terrelle Pryor.

"Terrelle Pryor is drawing interest from the Giants, 49ers, Titans, and Eagles as the free agency two-day negotiating window opens on Tuesday at noon, league sources told cleveland.com," writes Mary Kay Cabot.

On Tuesday at 9 a.m. Pacific, teams can begin negotiating the details of contracts with the agents of players who are set to become free agents on March 9. Contracts cannot officially be signed until 1 p.m. Pacific on Thursday.

The 49ers, who have $90.6 million in cap space following Colin Kaepernick opting out of his contract, have the money to be active in free agency.

Pryor is a quarterback turned wide receiver and had a breakout year with Cleveland in 2016. He was one of the few bright spots in an overwise miserable 1-15 season for the team. Pryor, who is 27-years old, caught 77 passes for 1,007 yards, four touchdowns, and had only four drops last season. At 6-foot-4 and 223 pounds, Pryor has good size for an NFL receiver.

"He's one of the best athletes in the NFL today," said cornerback Darrelle Revis. "For him to switch positions like he's done, and actually excel in a position swap, I tip my hat off to him."

Pryor had worked out for the 49ers in October of 2015, but the team decided not to sign him. He signed with Cleveland two months later.

Pryor was selected out of Ohio State by the Oakland Raiders in the third round of the 2011 NFL Draft. Following his time in Oakland, he bounced around from team-to-team as a quarterback before signing with Cleveland in 2015. While 2016 was his first season used primarily as a wide receiver, Pryor also took some snaps at quarterback and even safety. He had three 100-plus yard games last season. During Week 3, he had 144 receiving yards on eight receptions in a 30-24 loss to the Miami Dolphins.

The San Francisco 49ers announced their weekly practice squad elevations, sharing that wide receiver Willie Snead and cornerback Kendall Sheffield will be called up to the active roster for their Week 4 matchup against the Arizona Cardinals. With the announcement that Snead would be called up, one may assume that 49ers wideout Deebo Samuel's status would be trending down, as the 49ers expect to add another wideout to the active roster for Week 4. However, it's actually the opposite. Looking at the injury report, the 49ers aren't at risk of just missing Samuel, but

The San Francisco 49ers handily defeated the New York Giants in Week 3, winning 30-12 to improve to 3-0 on their season, scoring over 30 points for the third consecutive week of the season. Despite the comfortable win, the 49ers were nowhere near the "A-Game" offensively, struggling on some early drives and kicking field goals when touchdown opportunities were present, ultimately showcasing how dangerous this offense could be. While there were missed opportunities present last Thursday, another element that the 49ers were missing was emerging wideout Brandon Aiyuk, who was inactive due to a shoulder

The San Francisco 49ers have dominated through three games this season, outscoring opponents 92-42 en route to a 3-0 record, which only has been matched by two other teams in the NFL thus far. Through three games, the 49ers have started strong, forcing opponents to implement more of a pass-heavy approach, while their opponents haven't been strong rushing teams as well. In Week 1, the Pittsburgh Steelers threw the ball 46 times, rushing just 10 times in a 30-7 loss to San Francisco. The Los Angeles Rams had 55 passing attempts and 22 rushes in Week 2, while the New York Giants had 33 passing attempts to 11 rushes in Week
