Jets GM Mike Maccagnan declined to say whether the team would pick up SS Calvin Pryor's fifth-year option for 2018.
That means he's probably a goner after this year. Pryor arrived in New York with huge expectations but has been a colossal bust, grading out as PFF's No. 87 safety out of 91 qualifiers in 2016. ESPN's Rich Cimini previously suggested the Jets could look to trade Pryor, but we imagine interest would be scant. Mar 24 - 2:44 PM

A league source told ESPN Jets reporter Rich Cimini that New York may look to trade SS Calvin Pryor this offseason.

Pryor was the 18th pick in the 2014 draft by the John Idzik-Rex Ryan regime. Ryan immediately compared Pryor to former All-Pro Jack Tatum. Despite laying an occasional big hit, Pryor has been a non-playmaker for Gang Green. With 42 career games under his belt, Pryor has forced just two fumbles and picked off two passes. He's constantly out of place in coverage.

Jets SS Calvin Pryor suffered a concussion in Sunday's Week 12 loss to the Patriots.

He gets an extra day to pass through the NFL's protocol concussion testing with the Jets facing the Colts on Monday night. Pryor has had some bad moments in pass coverage this year, but he has fared well in run support.

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.

Jets SS Calvin Pryor (ankle) has been ruled out for Week 10 against the Bills.

Jets SS Calvin Pryor (ankle) has been ruled out for Week 9.

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 SS Calvin Pryor exited Week 15 against the Titans with a shoulder injury.

Pryor got his arm caught up behind him as he fell to the turf late in the first quarter. He stayed down on the ground for a while before walking off under his own power. He returned in the second half.
Sun, Dec 14, 2014 04:56:00 PM

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.

Rookie SS Calvin Pryor left the Jets' Week 4 game with a thigh injury.

Pryor was getting treatment on the sideline before heading to the locker room. He is out for the game. Jaiquawn Jarrett is filling in at safety.

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

He'll be all systems go moving forward. Pryor offers DB2 upside in IDP leagues as a big hitter in run support with ball skills. The 18th pick in May's draft, Pryor racked up nine forced fumbles and seven INTs in 32 college starts.
