The Jaguars released Pryor on Saturday, Mike Kaye of FirstCoastNews.com reports.
Pryor was traded to the Browns from the Jets in June, but was released prior to the season commencing after a reported altercation with a teammate. He subsequently landed with the Jaguars, but was placed on injured reserve in September with an ankle injury before being designated for a return and suiting up in the team's last two games. After failing to impress while seeing most of his snaps on special teams, the 2014 first-round pick will now look for a new opportunity.
Pryor (ankle) was activated off the Jaguars' injured reserve list Saturday, Ryan O'Halloran of The Florida Times-Union reports.
The Jaguars had until Wednesday to activate Pryor, but it looks like he will be ready to contribute for their Week 11 contest against the Browns. Pryor, who was acquired from the Jets off waivers prior to Week 1, will be another weapon for an already stacked Jaguars defense.
Head coach Doug Marrone believes Pryor (ankle) will be activated from injured reserve Saturday or Sunday, Mike Kaye of WTLV reports.
The Jaguars have until Wednesday, Nov. 22 to activate Pryor, or else he will be placed on season-ending injured reserve. Jacksonville has earned the title of the top-ranked defense through 10 weeks, so it's unclear how the Jags would deal with Pryor's return.
The Jaguars designated Pryor (ankle) as one of their two players eligible to return from injured reserve this season, Ryan O'Halloran of the Florida Times-Union reports.
The transaction means that Pryor's three-week window to return to the 53-man roster begins Wednesday. If Pryor is unable to show significant enough progress in his recovery from the injury to make a return to the active roster, he'll revert to season-ending injured reserve.
Pryor (ankle) was placed on injured reserve by the Jaguars on Monday.
Pryor joined the Jaguars only 10 days ago and was inactive for Weeks 1 and 2. It's unknown when exactly he injured his ankle, so the recovery timetable has always been murky. However, the 25-year-old will now need to reach an injury settlement with the team if he wants to play again this season -- unless the Jaguars are willing to use one of their IR-return designations on him, which is unlikely.
Pryor (ankle) is listed as out for Sunday's game against the Titans.
The 2014 first-round pick wasn't slated for much more than a special teams role Sunday. Pryor will likely have opportunities to climb the depth chart when he's healthy. Still, it's unclear when this injury was sustained, so the timeline for his return is tough to project.
Pryor was claimed off waivers by the Jaguars on Friday, Ryan O'Halloran of The Florida Times-Union reports.
Pryor didn't even make it to the regular season in Cleveland, but now he has another opportunity in Jacksonville. The 25-year-old will likely be a depth piece in the secondary to start, but with Tashaun Gipson (ankle) questionable for Sunday's game against Houston, he could have an opportunity to earn a larger role.
The Browns released Pryor on Thursday.
After wearing out his welcome with the Jets following a rough first three seasons in the league, Pryor, a 2014 first-round pick, was dealt to the Browns in June, with Cleveland hoping that a change an environment would help the safety tap into his potential. Though Pryor was set to open the upcoming season in a reserve role, the Browns handed him his walking papers after he got into a fight with a teammate prior to Thursday's practice, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network. The Browns will likely promote Kai Nacua from the practice squad to take Pryor's spot on the 53-man roster and provide the team with additional depth in the defensive backfield.
Pryor was traded by the Jets to the Browns on Thursday in exchange for linebacker Demario Davis, Mary Kay Cabot of Cleveland.com reports.
Pryor, who was a first-round selection in 2014, averaged 64 tackles per season over his first three years in the league with the Jets. This offseason, however, he had fallen down the team's pecking order at safety as he began working with the third-string defense in OTAs. The Browns like Pryor's experience and upside, and the change of scenery could do the 24-year-old well. Pryor will now look to re-establish his market value after the Jets declined the fifth-year option on his rookie deal, setting the stage for the versatile safety to become a free agent after this season.
The Jets informed Pryor on Tuesday that his fifth-year option won't be exercised, Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News reports.
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.
The Jets are unlikely to exercise Pryor's fifth-year option, ESPN's Rich Cimini reports.
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 reportedly sustained the injury on the Patriots' final offensive drive Sunday. He finished the game with three tackles, and will now be subject to the league's protocol before he can return to the field. While the Jets' Week 13 game not being until next Monday gives Pryor an extra day to get cleared, Antonio Allen and Rontez Miles could see more action in his absence.
Pryor ended the 2015 season with two interceptions, a forced fumble and 69 tackles.
Although Pryor only played in 13 games this year, he showed improvement in his second season, as he intercepted the first two passes of his career and increased his tackle total by nine from his rookie year. He's clearly in position to continue his progression, especially with head coach Todd Bowles preparing for his second season with the team's defensive system. Pryor's under contract for two more years with the Jets before the team can choose to exercise a fifth-year option in 2018.
