Is Calvin Pryor worth a look?

DanMetroMan : 9/7/2017 2:08 pm
Browns waived S Calvin Pryor.
Per NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, Pryor is being let go because he fought one of his teammates before practice. The 25-year-old last just three months in Cleveland after being acquired in a trade with the Jets this offseason. With Pryor gone, expect Derrick Kindred and first-round rookie Jabril Peppers to work as Cleveland's starting safeties. Sep 7 - 1:24 PM

Teammate in question was wide receiver Ricardo Lewis.

Plus this was before practice began.
As a safety,

isn't Pryor basically an undisciplined big hitter?
Over Berhe maybe?

reason I mention him is he's still only 25 and we know the Jets are a disaster. He was 74/90 per PFF last year (not good). This stat was the main reason for my query

"Interestingly, Pryor posted the ninth-best coverage grade among safeties in 2015 with a grade of 82.5. In 2016, however, Pryor saw his coverage grade drop to 58.2 while allowing the 14th-most receiving yards when in coverage among safeties."
And he was one of the 2 guys who publicly criticized Brandon Marshall

Oh, yeah? If that's true, forget it.
I remember him having real promise as a rookie

the Jets were excited about him. Hasn't seemed to work out.
When They Drafted Pryor  
Samiam : 9/7/2017 2:51 pm : link
They had something like 13 draft picks and ended up using about 4 of them for WRs. They easily could have traded up to get ahead of the Giants for Beckham. And WR was a big need. of course, they also could have drafted Carr to be their QB. Bless Rex Ryan
Talent is there

but you've got to question why he's worn out his welcome so quickly with two teams, despite the talent.

Two bad teams.
I will put money on Washington going after him.

If we were talking about his performance then I could see it, but for two teams desperate for a halfway decent player to cut bait so quickly should be cause for alarm.

In other words, hellllllloooooooooooooo Redskins!

He must have really kicked the guys ass

for them to cut him for it
He is an in the box safety  
Jay on the Island : 9/7/2017 6:33 pm : link
that struggles in coverage. He would be an upgrade over Berhe IF he isn't a locker room problem.
