Jets trade Calvin Pryor, their 2014 first-round pick, to Browns for Demario Davis

The New York Jets have traded their 2014 first-round pick, safety Calvin Pryor, to the Cleveland Browns for linebacker Demario Davis.

The move comes on the heels of the Jets drafting highly-touted free safety Jamal Adams out of LSU at the NFL Draft in May. Adams will presumably be the starting free safety.

Pryor, who was a strong prospect himself, found himself struggling when the Jets tried to place him in coverage, preferring to play around the line of scrimmage. This should present an interesting dilemma for the Browns defensive staff, as the Browns' 25th overall pick, safety Jabrill Peppers out of Michigan, also likes to hover around the line.

Pryor has 191 career tackles and two interceptions, both of which he accrued in 2015. It has been reported that he is being dealt because of his paycheck and attitude, both of which the Jets are trying to manage as they move forward. With Adams and Marcus Maye, the Jets are set at safety.

Davis is a veteran entering his sixth year in the NFL, and played his first five years with the Jets. Davis is entering the second year of a two-year contract that he signed with Cleveland.
