The Browns still have no plans to franchise receiver Terrelle Pryor, a league source told Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer.
The deadline to do so is Wednesday at 4 p.m.
The franchise number for wide receivers will be upwards of $15 million for 2017.
The Browns hope to sign Pryor to a long-term deal before he hits the open market March 9th.
Browns Executive Vice President Sashi Brown said after the season that he didn’t want to use the franchise tag on Pryor or Jamie Collins, and that hasn’t changed, the source said. They signed Collins to a $50 million extension, and have every intention of getting Pryor wrapped up too.
