Jets SS Calvin Pryor feels like he has not come close to reaching his potential.

"I haven't even hit the ceiling fan yet," Pryor said. "I think with Year 3, I can only get better." Pryor struggled as a rookie as the Jets were forced to play him out of position at free safety, but he was steadier in his natural strong safety role as a sophomore. With another offseason to become completely comfortable in Todd Bowles' defense, the Jets will hope Pryor can take another step forward this year.

Calvin Pryor has been told he'll only play strong safety this season.

Due to injuries and poor play, the desperate Jets tried Pryor at free safety a bunch as a rookie. It was a predictable mess that included the No. 18 overall pick getting benched in November. This year, converted corner Marcus Gilchrist will handle free safety duties which will allow Pryor to fill his natural box role. We should see significant improvement.

Jets first-round SS Calvin Pryor was benched in Week 10 for being late to multiple meetings this season.

Pryor, the No. 18 overall pick, didn't play a single defensive snap. Rex Ryan rolled with Jaiquawn Jarrett, who had 10 tackles, one sack and two interceptions as the Jets cooled off a white-hot Ben Roethlisberger. It's safe to say Jarrett will be getting another start.

Jets first-round SS Calvin Pryor (concussion) has been cleared for physical activity.

He's not yet cleared for contact, but is trending in the right direction. Pryor is a rookie to monitor in IDP leagues. He'll play an attacking role under coach Rex Ryan as a tone setter operating close to the line of scrimmage.

First-round SS Calvin Pryor is sidelined at Jets camp with a concussion.

Pryor was not known to have suffered any concussions at Louisville, where he missed only one career game. He did give other players concussions, frequently knocking opponents out of games. If Pryor progresses smoothly and gets medical clearance, he may only miss a handful of practices.

Jets signed first-round S Calvin Pryor to a four-year, $8.56 million contract.

Pryor gets a $4.5 million signing bonus per the rookie slotting system. And as with all first-round picks, the deal includes a fifth-year team option. A punishing in-the-box hitter known as the "Louisville Slugger," Pryor will play every down right out of the gate in Rex Ryan's defense. He's firmly on the IDP radar.

The Jets reportedly believe No. 18 overall pick Calvin Pryor is "smart enough to quarterback the secondary as a rookie."

The Jets' draft room reportedly "erupted" when the Ravens selected C.J. Mosley at No. 17, because they were concerned Baltimore might take Pryor. Per beat writer Rich Cimini, Rex Ryan is "particularly smitten with Pryor." Slated for an every-down role in Rex's defense, Pryor should be on the IDP radar immediately.
