The deadline to place franchise or transition tags for free agents came and went at 4 p.m. on Wednesday with no deal in place for Cleveland Browns wide receiver Terrelle Pryor.
Pryor, who led the team with 77 catches for 1007 yards, is seen as a priority for the team this offseason. However, Browns executive vice president of football operations Sashi Brown said at the NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis that the team “won’t panic if he’s not on our roster” entering 2017.
With no deal and the deadline passing, Pryor is now headed towards free agency where an extremely rich market will await him. The team does have until March 7 to reach a deal before other teams can legally begin talking with Pryor.
