The Jets’ quest to upgrade the wide receiver position will continue Tuesday with a planned visit from Terrelle Pryor, sources told Newsday. Pryor finished a visit with Seattle on Monday and didn’t come to terms on a deal.
NFL Network, which was the first to report Pryor’s visit with Seattle, said Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson has been recruiting him hard.
Receiver Charles Johnson, who missed last season with the Panthers after surgery on his right knee, visited the Jets. They have a talented group of wide receivers but no true No. 1 threat. Their leading receiver last season, Robby Anderson, faces a possible suspension by the league because of arrests last May and in January. If the Jets lose him for any period of time, Quincy Enunwa and Jermaine Kearse will become the projected starters.
Enunwa missed the 2017 season after undergoing neck surgery to repair a bulging disc. Kearse, in his first season with the Jets, had 65 catches for 810 yards and five touchdowns.
Pryor, 28, played nine games for Washington last season before undergoing ankle surgery. He told reporters he injured the ankle in Week 2.
Pryor, who played quarterback at Ohio State, had a breakout season in 2016 with the Browns, catching 77 passes for 1,007 yards and four touchdowns. After that season, he turned down a four-year deal from the Browns and signed a one-year contract with the Redskins.
The Jets announced the free-agent signings of center Spencer Long, linebacker Brandon Copeland and the return of defensive lineman Xavier Cooper.
