oming off a 1,000-yard season in his first full year as a wide receiver, Terrelle Pryor would be attractive to several NFL teams as he looks for a new NFL contract.
But Pryor says he loves the Browns, and he’s reportedly told his agents to work out a deal with the team.
Pryor told the Cleveland Plain Dealer that he wants to be part of the rebuilding process in Cleveland under coach Hue Jackson. The Browns finished 1-15 last season.
“I know this is an important month,” Pryor said. “But I do love being with the Browns and like I said before, this thing isn’t about joining a different team because a different team’s good.
And the New York Giants’ current backfield — and salary-cap — situation hasn’t gone unnoticed by the potential free-agent-to-be.
His latest pitch was a tweet late Wednesday, in which he noted “interesting moves” by the Giants.
Before you think Peterson was just following NFL roster moves (or maybe is a Victor Cruz fan), you should remember that he recently said on ESPN that the Giants are a team he has “thought about” playing for next season.
“I believe that I can be one of the best,” Smith said. “I’ve shown that in glimpses. What I’ve been searching for is consistency, and I think that consistency will lead me to be that great player that I always see myself being.”
While claiming he can be “one of the best” is bold, it’s a good sign because a quarterback needs that kind of confidence. And Smith is right when he says he needs consistency, because he hasn’t had that during his tenure in New York.
