The Browns and Terrelle Pryor seem to be growing more distant by the hour, and just after the start of the new league year, the wideout set his first visit outside of Berea.

Pryor is set to visit with the Redskins, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported.

It's an interesting first team to visit with, considering the turmoil reportedly stemming from Kirk Cousins' unhappiness with his contract situation and desire to be traded elsewhere. But for Pryor's camp, they need to field offers outside of Cleveland to gain any sense of leverage, and the first step to fielding offers is meeting with teams. We don't expect this to be his last visit.

Elsewhere in free agency madness on the first day of the new league year:

1. Another wide receiver set to get paid on Thursday is Robert Woods, who is headed to the Rams after agreeing to terms on a five-year deal worth up to $39 million with $15 million guaranteed, Rapoport reported. The Rams are also signing quarterback Aaron Murray, Rapoport reported.
