The Jaguars have claimed safety Calvin Pryor off waivers. Pryor was recently waived by the Cleveland Browns after an incident with a teammate.
The former 1st round pick of the NY Jets, Pryor, was drafted with the 18th overall pick in 2014. His career has been, largely, a disappointment. Coming into the NFL with big expectations after a stellar career at Louisville Pryor was thought to be one of the best safeties in his draft class.
The Jets traded Pryor to the Browns following the 2016 season. He didn't stick long in Cleveland, but Pryor will immediately be the Jaguars most proven backup safety and could become a fixture in the backfield with a change in scenery, and attitude.
This move could also help the Jaguars in the immediate future. Starting FS Tashaun Gipson is questionable with an ankle injury for the Jaguars week 1 matchup with the Texans. Pryor regularly plays strong safety, but the more depth at safety with a potential man down, the better.
