Jaguars release former Jets first-round pick Calvin Pryor

The Jacksonville Jaguars released safety Calvin Pryor on Saturday.

The former Jets first-round pick spent most of this season on injured reserve, only making brief appearances in the Jags last two games.

Pryor, who was once touted a promising young talent, was traded from the Jets to the Browns in exchange for linebacker Demario Davis in June. However, a fight with wide receiver Ricardo Louis before practice in September resulted in Pryor being released.

The 25-year-old Pryor will now go on waivers, where any team can claim him. If no team claims him, he’ll be a free agent. This is the final season of his rookie contract, so he’ll become a free agent in March even if some team does claim him.

In a corresponding move, the Jaguars promoted rookie defensive end Carroll Phillips to the 53-man active roster.
