Browns HC Hue Jackson made it official on Thursday by announcing that they’ve waived S Calvin Pryor.
Jackson added that they have no plans to waive WR Ricardo Louis following the recent incident.
- Mike Garafolo reports that Pryor got into a fight with WR Ricardo Louis and there’s currently no word regarding Lewis’ status with the team.
Pryor was noticeably absent from Thursday’s practice and there was no reason given by the team.
Pryor, 24, is a former first-round pick of the Jets back in 2014. He’s currently in the final year of his four-year, $8.56 million contract and stands to make a base salary of $1,587,717 for the 2017 season.
The Jets declined to pick up Pryor’s fifth-year option this offseason and later traded him to the Browns in return for LB Demario Davis.
According to OverTheCap.com, waiving Pryor would free up no cap space while creating $1,136,955 in dead money.
In 2016, Pryor appeared in 15 games for the Jets and recorded 62 tackles, no interceptions, a forced fumble and five pass defenses. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 73 safety out of 89 qualifying players.
