Jaguars Activate WR Dede Westbrook & S Calvin Pryor From Injured Reserve

The Jacksonville Jaguars announced Saturday that they’ve activated WR Dede Westbrook and S Calvin Pryor from injured reserve.

Westbrook, 23, was selected with the No. 110 overall pick by the Jaguars in this year’s draft. According to OverTheCap.com, Westbrook signed a four-year contract worth $3,076,164, which includes a signing bonus of $676,164.

During his college career at Oklahoma, Westbrook caught 126 passes for 2,267 yards receiving and 21 touchdowns over the course of 26 games. He also contributed 244 kick return yards and 81 punt return yards to go along with one return touchdown.

Pryor, 25, 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. Pryor was waived by the Browns a few weeks ago after he got into a fight with a teammate and he was later claimed by the Jaguars.

Unfortunately, the Jaguars placed him on injured reserve a few weeks into the regular season.

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.
