Jets SS Calvin Pryor back at natural position
by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer

Calvin Pryor's rookie season with the Jets didn't go exactly as planned, as the team had the safety playing more of a coverage role, which took away his ability to be a big hitter. 

This season, under new coach Todd Bowles' revamped secondary, Pryor will play closer to the line of scrimmage, allowing him to literally and figuratively make more of an impact, per Prior had no interceptions, forced fumbles or fumble recoveries last season. 

"Yes, I feel like I'll be able to make more plays and make things happen for the defense," Pryor said. "I'm not really trying to think back on last year. I'm just trying to look forward and see what happens this year."

by Marty Gitlin |

Rex Ryan has announced that Jets rookie safety Calvin Pryor will not remained benched in Week 12 against Buffalo. Pryor was forced to miss the Sunday win over Pittsburgh after being late for team meetings.

"Calvin is going to play," Ryan told "He'll definitely play."

But after serving as a starter most of the year, Pryor has apparently lost that job to Jaiquawn Jarrett, who earned Defensive Player of the Week honors for a performance against the Steelers in which he recorded two interceptions, one fumble recovery and a sack.

Ryan said he expects Jarrett to start against the Bills.

Report: Jets benched Calvin Pryor due to disciplinary reasons
by Igor Mello |

The Jets benched defensive back Calvin Pryor in favor of Jaiquawn Jarrett in Week 10 against Pittsburgh, and it may have been because of disciplinary reasons. Although Pryor suffered a stinger in the first quarter of his previous game, the first-round pick was late to multiple meetings, which may have been the reasoning behind his benching in Week 10, according to ESPN New York.

With the Pryor on the bench, Jarrett thrived registering a pair of interceptions, a sack and a fumble recovery in a 20-13 victory.

"It was a coach's decision," Pryor said, according to the New York Post. "We were going to rotate, but Jaiquawn Jarrett had a hell of a game, two interceptions, picked-up fumble. Stay with the hot guy, just keep him out there."
