Extra Points: Browns, Pryor, Jets

In a reply to on an Instagram post by Duke Johnson, Terrelle Pryor seemed to hint at having interest in returning to the Browns, as ESPN.com’s Pat McManamon writes. The Browns did express interest in reuniting with Pryor before the trade deadline, but it’s not clear whether new GM John Dorsey would want to sign him.

Pryor, who is scheduled to be a free agent in March, had a breakout season with the Browns in 2016, catching 77 passes for 1,007 yards and four touchdowns. This past year, however, he had only 20 catches for 240 yards and one score in nine games.

Here’s more from around the NFL:

  • Jets tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins has hired Doug Hendrickson as his agent in advance of free agency, according to Manish Mehta of the Daily News (on Twitter). Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times (on Twitter) wonders if ASJ could be a fit for the Seahawks and notes that Hendrickson has gotten deals done for Michael Bennett, Marshawn Lynch, Dion Jordan, and other players in Seattle.
  • The Seahawks could be looking to replace kicker Blair Walsh and punter Jon Ryan, as Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times writes. This week, the team is meeting with kicker Jason Myers and punter Jeff Locke. Myers was with the Jaguars from 2015 through the first six games of the 2017 season. He was released after missing three pivotal field goals, though they were all from 52 yards or longer. All in all, he connected on 64-of-79 field goal attempts (81%) and 76-of-88 extra points (86.4%) in 38 games with the Jags. Locke, meanwhile, appeared in five games for Detroit.
  • Center Corey Linsley‘s new three-year deal with the Packers is worth $27.3MM and includes an $8MM signing bonus (Twitter link via Tom Silverstein of the Journal-Sentinel). His cap numbers are: $3.85MM in 2017, $4.85MM in ’18, $8.15MM in ’19, and $10.5MM in ’20.

    Walsh is a good kicker but chokes under pressure. He literally lost he game for the Vikings vs the Seahawks then turned around and lost a couple for the Seahawks this year. If he isn’t replaced I’d be completely shocked. If you can’t hit game winning FG’s in this league you just won’t last.

      I just saw a screenshot of a Facebook event to feed Blair Walsh to Mount Rainier and over 4,000 people joined it

    I’m all for bringing Pryor back, but I am still waiting for the “Browns fire Hue” story.

    I wish Philly would sign Pryor. I know Jeffery and Smith is there, and Agohlor had a good year. However, I think it would only benefit them to have another tall receiver

      Plenty of tall wideouts out there who won’t cost as much as a Pryor.

    Pryor & Josh Gordon in Cleveland! With Coleman & Duke Johnson. All we need is a real passer.
