Browns trade LB Demario Davis to Jets for DB Calvin Pryor

Possibly in response, Pryor skipped the first day of OTAs last week and showed up on the second day. He practiced on the second day of the voluntary workouts, but his one-day absence was perceived as a message. Pryor was then relegated to competing with backups during the team's recent Organized Team Activities workouts.

Besides from getting rid of a player that was not part of the team's future plans, the Jets freed up some cap space.

Both Pryor and Davis will enter the final season of their contracts in the fall. And so Thursday's trade was simply the logical conclusion to a breakup that has been looming for more than a month. As of Tuesday, Pryor was working with the third team defense, as reported by Rich Cimini. Speaking in general terms, he said, "We draft people every year". With Adams in the fold, the Jets have officially given up on Pryor. Pryor's time in NY was up after their draft sternly rebuked his uneven play, while Davis should be much more useful to the Jets. He was also demoted for a couple games his rookie season after consistently showing up late to meetings. In 80 career games, Davis has registered four fumble recoveries, 8.5 sacks and 437 tackles.

He was likely going to get cut if not traded. The Jets indicated Pryor was on his way out a couple of times during the offseason.

Pryor started 38 of his 44 games after being drafted 18th overall by NY in 2014.

"Calvin is a young-experienced safety that has upside", Browns head of football operations Sashi Brown said in a news release. "We appreciate all he did for our organization in his time in Cleveland".

Davis returns to the team that selected him in the was a third-round of the 2012 draft. He started all 15 games in which he appeared last season and tallied 60 tackles, six passes defensed and one forced fumble.

The Cleveland Browns filled many gaps in their depleted roster through free agency and the 2017 NFL Draft, but there was still a glaring hole at the safety position despite adding Jabrill Peppers.

Jamie Collins is the other starter.
