Free agency update: WR Terrelle Pryor agrees to terms with the Jets

At one point, the San Francisco 49ers were reported to be among the teams showing interest in former Washington Redskins wide receiver Terrelle Pryor. On March 14, Mike Silver of NFL Network named the 49ers, along with the Los Angeles Rams and Cleveland Browns, as the interested parties in the free-agent receiver.

Nothing developed since then and Pryor agreed to terms on a deal with the New York Jets on Thursday, according to multiple reports.

The 49ers tried to sign Pryor a year ago, but the receiver opted to join Washington on a one-year deal worth $8 million. He caught 20 passes for 240 yards with a touchdown last year before landing on injured reserve on November 21, 2017, due to an ankle injury he had been dealing with since a Week 2 matchup against the Los Angeles Rams.

The Oakland Raiders made Pryor a third-round draft pick out of Ohio State in 2011. Following three seasons in Oakland, the then-quarterback bounced around from team-to-team before finally being claimed off waivers by the Browns on June 22, 2015.

Pryor, who was waived by Cleveland on September 10, 2015, had a workout with the 49ers a month later. San Francisco opted not to sign him, and Pryor 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 in 16 games with 15 starts.

On Wednesday, 49ers general manager John Lynch stated the team had already shifted focus from free agency to next month's draft, making any further big-name signings unlikely.

49ers insider believes team may prefer WR Brandon Aiyuk play on fifth-year option

The San Francisco 49ers don't always do things like other NFL teams do. But they are consistent, for the most part. Seemingly every offseason, especially in recent years, a star player has wanted a new contract. From TE George Kittle and LB Fred Warner to WR Deebo Samuel and Edge Nick Bosa, the 49ers have given new contracts, but they have waited until late July-early August (and in Bosa's case—September) to do so, much to the chagrin of those players, who wanted their new deal sooner rather than later. It may not have happened as soon as the players wanted it to, but it has happened. Kittle's contract talks reportedly weren't as smooth as he might have hoped, Samuel famously scrubbed his social media accounts of all things 49ers, and Bosa didn't sign until a few days

Ctrl+Z: 4 key decisions 49ers might "undo" if given the chance

No one is perfect. Each of us makes mistakes. I do for sure. Peruse your way through the many articles I've written for 49ers Webzone and you'll see plenty of mistakes. Whether it's a typo or some prediction I offered that didn't go as I had thought. The San Francisco 49ers are no different. John Lynch and Kyle Shanahan have made their share of mistakes. Fortunately for all of us, they hit on more than they miss. But I wonder if we were able to catch them in a moment of complete transparency if they might admit to wanting to hit the Ctrl+Z and "undo" some moves. I doubt they will admit to such mistakes anytime soon, but fear not—I'm here to do it for them. Yes, I could write on the best decisions
