Free-agent wide receiver Terrelle Pryor has agreed to a contract with the Jets, Newsday’s Calvin Watkins reported Thursday. Terms were not available.
Pryor, 28, will be entering his third full season as an NFL receiver, each with a different team, after beginning his career as a quarterback with the Raiders. Last season he caught 20 passes for 240 yards and one touchdown for the Redskins. An early-season ankle injury limited him to nine games with Washington.
The season prior, he broke out with 77 receptions, 1,007 yards and four TDs for the Browns.
Brewers: OF Christian Yelich went on the 10-day disabled list on Sunday, four days after one of Milwaukee’s prized offseason acquisitions got hurt during a 6-0 loss to St. Louis. The move was retroactive to Thursday. He was hitting .385 with one homer and five RBI.
Milwaukee’s Adrian Houser pitched two shutout innings before being optioned back to Double-A Biloxi. It was the right-hander’s only appearance since being called up to replace Corey Knebel after the All-Star closer went on the 10-day disabled list Friday with a strained right hamstring. The Brewers said a corresponding move would be made on Monday.
King was sixth in the NFL in 2017 on yards per punt (47.4) and tied for 15th for kicks inside the 20 (28).
He was named second team All-Pro by the Associated Press in 2016.
King signed a five-year, $16.5 million deal in 2016 and had three years remaining on his contract.
The punter has been a popular player with the Raiders for several years now and has a loyal following on Instagram with more than 350,000 followers.
Oakland also waived tight end Clive Walford.
The teams are both 27-53 with two games remaining and will meet again Monday in Brooklyn in another crucial game for draft positioning.
The Nets’ first-round pick is owned by Cleveland after being moved via Boston in the Kyrie Irving trade last August.
Brooklyn’s 24 3-pointers pushed them over 1,000 for the season, ending the game with a franchise record 1,012.
The previous season high was 877 last year.
