Rookie safety Calvin Pryor has only been with the Jets for a month, but he's already learned some important lessons about being a Jet: Namely, everyone hates Tom Brady. Also, no one likes the Giants either. 

During an interview with SportsNet New York's Daily News Live this week, Pryor didn't fudge any of his answers. 

"We don't like Tom at all," Pryor said of Brady. "When I first came here, that was one of the first things I heard about: We hate the Patriots and we hate the Giants. So we hate those guys and I look forward to playing them this season."

If you're surprised to hear Pryor trash talk, you shouldn't be. Apparently the only thing Pryor loves as much as football is trash-talking. 

"I am who I am. I'm going to talk trash, I'm going to be myself, and people who don't like me just going to have to get used to it," Pryor said last month

And in case you're wondering, Jets coach Rex Ryan doesn't have a problem with Pryor talking a little smack. 

"He said just be yourself and go talk trash and try to get them off their game," Pryor said. "He's going to let you talk trash at the opponents. He wants to win by any means necessary."
