The Cleveland Browns on Monday extended qualifying offers to the following restricted free agents: DB Don Jones, OL Austin Pasztor, WR Terrelle Pryor and LB Scott Solomon.
If Jones (seventh), Pryor (third) or Solomon (seventh) signs an offer sheet with another club, the Browns have right of first refusal and would receive draft choice compensation equal to the player's original draft round if they leave. If Pasztor (undrafted) signs an offer sheet with another club, the Browns would have right of first refusal.
Jones appeared in five games with the Saints last season before being acquired by Cleveland via waivers. He appeared in nine games with the Browns and registered three special-teams tackles. Jones has appeared in 43 career games and has logged 26 special-teams tackles.
Pasztor, who was acquired via waivers from Jacksonville, appeared in all 16 games with the Browns with four starts at left guard in 2015. He has appeared in 42 career games with 27 starts (seven at left guard and 20 at right tackle).
Pryor appeared in three games with two starts in 2015. He had one reception for 42 yards. He has appeared in 18 career games with 12 starts.
Solomon notched one tackle in two games before being placed on injured reserve (knee) on Oct. 14. He has appeared in 24 career games and logged 25 tackles and two sacks.
