Pryor remains under contract for 2017 in what will be the last year of his rookie deal, but it's expected that the 24-year-old, whose play has been marred by inconsistency over his first three NFL seasons, will see his role decrease. The Jets had been shopping Pryor prior to last weekend's NFL draft, and though they found no takers, the team made upgrading the safety spot a priority in its selections. With first-round pick Jamal Adams and second-round pick Marcus Maye now in the fold, it's quite possible that Pryor may only see the field when coach Todd Bowles deploys three-safety packages. That would allow Pryor to play closer to the line of scrimmage more frequently rather than in coverage, an area where he's struggled throughout his career.
A first-round pick in 2014, Pryor disappointed in 2016 after a promising 2015 campaign. While he's locked in as the team's starting strong safety for this upcoming season, the Jets can save $7 million by not picking up his fifth-year option for 2018. If that's what the team ultimately decides to do, 2017 will be a contract year for Pryor in which he'll need to step up his play to earn a big deal in free agency.
Pryor missed last week's matchup with the Colts due to his concussion but practiced throughout the past week and was a full participant in Friday's session. He'll play without limitation in Sunday's game against San Francisco.
Pryor (concussion) is ruled out of Monday's game against the Colts, ESPN reports.
Pryor sustained a concussion last week against the Pats and wasn't fit to practice this week. Rontez Miles will step into the starting strong safety role in his stead.
Pryor was concussed during last Sunday's bout with the Patriots and remains in the concussion protocol. His status for Monday's game will presumably be determined in the aftermath of
