Two NFL teams have emerged as the favorites to land Terrelle Pryor. They are not among the franchises that most thought he would wind up with.

Back in February, Sportsline set odds for Pryor's next stop. His two most likely options were teams he previously played for: Washington and Cleveland.

Pryor had his breakout season at wide receiver for the Browns in 2016, catching 77 passes for 1,007 yards and four touchdowns. Last season, he took a step back after signing as a free agent in Washington. Sportsline had both teams at 3/1 to land Pryor.

The other two teams listed were the Oakland Raiders, where Pryor previously played quarterback, at 6/1. The San Francisco 49ers were at 8/1.

According to Mary Kay Cabot, anyone who took the field at 5/1 is in good shape. The two expected contenders for Pryor now are the New York Jets and Seattle Seahawks.

Terrelle Pryor is coming off of a 240-yard, one touchdown season.

He was signed by Washington to be a lead receiver, catching passes from Kirk Cousins. He took a one year deal to gamble on himself after his big Cleveland season.

It didn't exactly work out. He only wound up playing in nine games, starting two.

Pryor wound up finishing sixth on the team in receiving yards and eighth in catches. Washington has since swapped out Cousins after acquiring Alex Smith, so the team's offense will look a fair amount different this year.

Pryor has actually been with Seattle before. When he was attempting to play quarterback, he spent the summer of 2014 with the franchise, but was eventually cut.

It wasn't until he landed with the Browns in 2015 that he began to transition over to wide receiver. Now, he'll attempt to prolongue his NFL career with one of these two teams.
