The Cleveland Browns were the worst team in the NFL last season, and the only bright spots were Joe Thomas (obviously) and the emergence of former quarterback Terrelle Pryor at the wide receiver position. Pryor, obviously, is now with the Washington Redskins.

Pryor had 77 catches for over 1,000 yards and four touchdowns, which is solid for a first-time wide receiver in the league (especially since the guy used to play QB). Pryor clearly wanted to stay in Cleveland and it seemed like the Browns had him in their future plans, so why is he in DC?

Apparently, the Browns did what they usually do: be stupid. From my understanding of this article, Cleveland completely botched in trying to re-sign the former Ohio State Buckeyes star.

Pryor, who signed a one-year, $8 million deal with the Redskins, was reportedly looking for a similar deal in Cleveland. His agents and him were asking for a one-year deal with the ability to get a larger contract that next offseason.

The Browns offered a four-year, $32 million deal. Salary-wise, it's the same exact deal with the Redskins. However, what Pryor wanted was not to be locked into that salary for eight years, as he wanted to be able to increase his salary in 2018 if he plays well.

The Browns say they were never given a chance to re-offer Pryor after he agreed to a deal with the Redskins, but that's not true. Another source says Pryor did in fact give them another chance, and guess what they did? They LOWERED their offer.

So the Browns basically lowballed with Pryor, yet they were more than willing to take in the huge salary for Houston Texans QB Brock Osweiler. That is worthy of a Swaggy P confused face. The ceiling is not the roof for this team.
