The Redskins became the first team in NFL history to lose two 1,000-yard receivers in the same offseason Thursday after DeSean Jackson and Pierre Garcon bolted in free agency.

But they made a move Friday to replace their departed receivers, signing Terrelle Pryor to a one-year, $8 million contract, as reported by ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

Pryor, a converted quarterback, will presumably play receiver for the Redskins (but with the Kirk Cousins situation changing by the hour, that’s not necessarily a lock). As a wideout for the Cleveland Browns, Pryor caught 77 passes for 1,007 yards and four touchdowns in 2016, his first full season as a receiver.

The former Ohio State standout has thrown for 1,994 yards and nine touchdowns to go with 12 interceptions in his pro career as a quarterback.
