As Terrelle Pryor Sr. relentlessly works to get better this offseason (see here, here, and here), contract negotiations with the Cleveland Browns are about to heat up again on the day before NFL teams can begin using the franchise tag. News of a meeting first came from Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports:

Mary Kay Cabot of the Plain Dealer followed that up with the following information:

Pryor's agents [including Drew Rosenhaus] will have 'strong discussions' with the Browns soon about a new deal...and Pryor has instructed them he wants to stay in Cleveland. ... The Browns have no plans to franchise Pryor, and would only do so if they can't strike a long-term deal.

I explained the other day why the potential exists for negotiations to get tricky with Pryor. However, the part that Cabot highlighted about Pryor “instructing his agents that he wants to stay in Cleveland” leaves me to believe that he is looking to get paid, but is not looking to squeeze every penny possible out of the Browns.
