Contract Declined: Four years, $32 million
Estimated Money Lost: $24 million (so far)
After flaming out as a quarterback, Pryor resurfaced as a wide receiver for the Browns in 2016 and was way better than people expected him to be. He racked up 1,007 yards on the season, which is fantastic for an ex-quarterback playing his first full season as a wide receiver. What made this even more impressive was that he did it for the NFL’s worst team.
The Browns were so impressed by Pryor that they offered him a four-year, $32 million deal after the season, with $17 million in guaranteed money. Not bad at all for a guy who had only been a receiver for a year. But Pryor decided to bet on himself and sign a one-year, $8 million "prove it" deal with the Redskins.
As anyone who owned Pryor in fantasy last year knows, he did not live up to the hype in Washington. He had just 240 yards receiving on the year and made just two starts thanks to injuries and ineffective play. He remains unsigned so far this offseason.
