The New York Jets have traded former first round pick Calvin Pryor to the Cleveland Browns. With the Jets recently drafting Jamal Adams, and Marcus Maye in the first two rounds of the draft, the end seemed inevitable for Calvin Pryor.
Pryor was recently demoted to working with the 3rd team in OTAs, sparking he and his agent to demand for a trade. In his short 3 year Jets’ career, Pryor recorded 192 total tackles, .5 of a sack, and two interceptions. The lack of playmaking ability in the passing game ultimately lead the Jets to go in another direction.
In return the Jets bring back former Inside Linebacker Demario Davis. Davis brings speed to ILB position. Davis will be in contention to start at ILB with 2016 first round pick Darron Lee. Unless the Jets move Lee to Outside Linebacker, and put Davis back at inside linebacker with his buddy David Harris.
Overall the Jets seem to have made a decent trade, Calvin Pryor who was working on the 3rd team defense, and wasn’t going to see the field. For someone in Demario Davis who is familiar with the team, and can have an impact with the defense right away.
