49ers among teams showing interest in WR Terrelle Pryor

Mar 6, 2017 at 11:41 AM--


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.

What Kyle Shanahan said about 49ers' interest in Stephon Gilmore

Were the San Francisco 49ers interested in former New England Patriots cornerback Stephon Gilmore? Maybe. Maybe not. Head coach Kyle Shanahan didn't make that clear while speaking with reporters before today's practice. Not that anyone thought he would. What the coach did say is that the 49ers at least look into the possibility of acquiring Gilmore. "We looked into all of it," Shanahan told reporters. "We obviously didn't go through with it." While initial reports stated that the Patriots were planning to release Gilmore due to a contract dispute, New England ended up trading the Pro Bowl and All-Pro cornerback to the Carolina Panthers in exchange for a 2023 sixth-round draft pick. It was a modest price for one of the league's top

49ers stock plummets in Week 5 NFL Power Rankings

The analysts who were clamoring for backup quarterback Trey Lance no longer believe the 49ers are a playoff-caliber team. When San Francisco 49ers defensive coordinator DeMeco Ryans was exposed in Week 3, the young coordinator's incompetence was far from a hot topic of conversation amongst members of the national sports media -- if it was even discussed at all. After months of fawning over rookie quarterback Trey Lance, the media finally got its wish in Week 4, as the latest future of the 49ers' franchise played the entire second half of the Niners' loss to the Seattle Seahawks. The rookie certainly looked the part during the team's defeat, simply proving what was obvious all along: He's not ready; but who expected him to be? Although analysts
