Former Louisville Cardinal safety Calvin Pryor’s was expected to spend his fourth season in the NFL with a new team, but unfortunately for him that won’t happen.

Pryor was released by the Cleveland Browns on Thursday afternoon, just three months after being traded from the New York Jets. Browns head coach Hue Jackson said during a news conference that Pryor was released after he got into a fight with wide receiver Ricardo Louis prior to Thursday’s practice.

The former Cardinal safety was drafted by the Jets with the 18th overall pick in the 2014 NFL Draft. In three seasons Pryor played in 44 games and had just two interceptions.

Here’s to hoping Pryor gets an opportunity with a new team.
