Former Louisville Cardinal safety Calvin Pryor’s will spend his fourth season in the NFL with a new team. After spending his first three years with the New York Jets, the franchise has decided to trade Pryor to the Cleveland Browns.
Pryor’s first three seasons in the NFL haven’t gone as well as most expected. After being selected in by the New York Jets with the 18th overall pick, Pryor has yet prove he’s worthy of being a first rounder.
Leading up to last month’s NFL Draft, Pryor’s future in New York seemed to be uncertain. His name surfaced in several trades during draft week, but a deal was never made. The Jets drafted two safeties with their first and second round picks.
The Browns will send former Jets linebacker Demario Davis back to New York in the trade. Pryor will have a lot to prove in his fourth season. Before trading him to Cleveland, the Jets declined to pick up the fifth year option on his rookie contract. The former Card could use this opportunity with the Browns to earn a new contract.
