Jaguars released S Calvin Pryor.

Pryor spent the first 10 weeks on injured reserve, but was one of Jacksonville's return players. He played just two games (28 snaps) before getting released. Pryor has three years starting experience but doesn't offer much on special teams. He isn't a lock to resurface.

Jaguars activated S Calvin Pryor (ankle) from injured reserve.

A first-round pick of the Jets in 2014, Pryor was picked up off waivers from the Browns in September. He is unlikely to play a big role on defense, but he should help out on special teams. Jacksonville also promoted WR Larry Pinkard from the practice squad, waived DT Sheldon Day and WR Jaelen Strong, and placed WR Arrelious Benn (knee) on injured reserve.

Jaguars designated S Calvin Pryor (ankle) one of their return players.

They tabbed Dede Westbrook (groin) as their other return player, and he is expected to get back on the field this week. Pryor may take a little longer to return, but Jacksonville only has 21 days to activate him off injured reserve.

Jaguars placed S Calvin Pryor on injured reserve with an ankle injury.

The Jets/Browns bust lasted 10 days in Jacksonville. Pryor will likely be released with an injury settlement once he gets healthy.

Jaguars claimed S Calvin Pryor off waivers from the Browns.

Pryor made it past final cuts with Cleveland, but was released for fighting teammate Ricardo Louis. He reunites with assistant GM John Idzik in Jacksonville, who drafted Pryor in 2014 with the Jets. Pryor is solid depth behind Tashaun Gipson and Barry Church.

Browns waived S Calvin Pryor.

The scuttlebutt is that Pryor was let go for fighting a teammate, reportedly WR Ricardo Louis. The 25 year old former first-rounder lasted just three months in Cleveland after being acquired from the Jets in June. Derrick Kindred and first-round rookie Jabril Peppers enter Week 1 as the Browns' top safeties.
Thu, Sep 7, 2017 01:24:00 PM

Browns acquired S Calvin Pryor from the Jets in exchange for ILB Demario Davis.

As Pryor was rumored to be on the trade block even before the Jets used their first two picks on safeties, this move does not come as a surprise and looks like a win-win. Pryor will have a good chance to start next to first-round rookie Jabrill Peppers in Cleveland, while the Jets add needed and familiar depth at linebacker in Davis, who played in New York from 2012-15. After the Jets passed on his fifth-year option, Pryor is set to be a free agent after this season.

Jets S Calvin Pryor has spent time with the third-team defense in OTAs.

In case it wasn't already clear, Pryor is on the outs with the Jets. He will not be a starter in 2017. The question is whether he'll be with the team at all. Working in Pryor's favor is the fact that the Jets can't recoup any savings/cap space by cutting his $1.6 million salary, but it's possible the situation has become unworkable after the Jets used their first two picks on safeties.
Tue, May 30, 2017 01:38:00 PM

Jets S Calvin Pryor is participating in voluntary OTAs.

Pryor didn't report to Day 1 of OTAs. There was speculation he could hold out after the Jets declined his fifth-year option and drafted safeties with their first two picks. Owed a fully guaranteed $1.6 million salary, the Jets wouldn't save any money from releasing Pryor.
Wed, May 24, 2017 05:01:00 PM

ESPN New York believes Jets S Calvin Pryor might be a candidate for release.

Pryor is skipping voluntary OTAs, and coach Todd Bowles said he didn't want to discuss Pryor's absence. The Jets clearly do not have Pryor in their long-term plans after they spent first- and second-round picks on safeties Jamal Adams and Marcus Maye. The Jets also declined Pryor's fifth-year option.
Tue, May 23, 2017 04:54:00 PM

Jets walk-year S Calvin Pryor was not spotted at the beginning of OTAs.

Pryor has been the subject of trade rumors all offseason, and the Jets declined his fifth-year option after selecting two safeties with their first two picks in the draft. Pryor can certainly see the writing on the wall, and he may look to force the issue by holding out. That said, these workouts are voluntary.
Tue, May 23, 2017 11:05:00 AM

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the Jets will not pick up SS Calvin Pryor's fifth-year option for 2018.

It is not a surprise after the Jets added two safeties in the first two rounds of the draft. New York would undoubtedly like to trade Pryor, but that may be difficult with the draft finished. Pryor is now scheduled to be a free agent after the season.
Tue, May 2, 2017 08:44:00 AM

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.
Fri, Mar 24, 2017 02:44:00 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.
