Port St. Joe alum Pryor traded to Browns

Pryor, a safety out of Louisville selected 18th overall by Idzik in 2014, was traded to the Cleveland Browns on Thursday for another former Jet, LB Demario Davis.

The linebacker had some productive years with Gang Green before the Browns signed him away from the Jets in free agency last year.

The writing was on the wall for Pryor with the Jets after the team drafted safeties during the first and second rounds in April: LSU's Jamal Adams and Florida's Marcus Maye. What's more, Pryor fits the bill of what they're trying to do, building a defense based on youth and explosiveness. Williams employs a nickel or dime package most of the time, and like last season, Davis would have been the linebacker to come off the field in those situations, leaving Collins and Kirksey. Davis played 70 percent of the Browns' defensive snaps past year, but he, too, can be a liability in coverage in a pass-happy league that increasingly requires defenses to deploy linebacker-safety hybrids.

Irving's 42 carry Cavs to win, 3-1 lead over Celtics
Irving said he was driven by the thought of the Cavs seeing their series lead vanish. "We can't go back to Boston tied 2-2". The Celtics used their third different starting lineup in four games against Cleveland .

ESPN's Adam Schefter reported that the Jets were planning to release Pryor if they couldn't trade him, but the move to swap him for a starting-caliber linebacker appears to help both camps.

Well, it's a good thing Pryor didn't slip to them. With the Jets not scheduled to compete this season, all positions and statuses are up for grabs. He showed promise in 2015 under Bowles, but he regressed last season and lost playing time.

There's no telling whether the Browns are willing to resign Pryor once he becomes a free agent after this season, but he certainly provides an upgrade to the team's secondary. This will raise questions about Harris' future, as he's 33 years old and entering the final year of his contract. The Jets will owe Davis $3.8 million in 2017 and Cleveland will eat $1 million in dead cap space. The main reason for this trade was to avoid any locker room controversy that Pryor might cause before it happened. However, it seemed like a trade was unlikely, the Jets evidently weren't getting their asking price from any potential buyers. For that I'm thankful to the one who's in control, the man upstairs.
