In an offseason replete with both awe-inducing and head-scratching decisions, the Browns make yet another deal that mixes up their lineup. Time will tell which category this addition falls into.

Calvin Pryor has been traded from the Jets, and in exchange the Browns sent Demario Davis to the Big Apple.

The news was first reported by NFL’s Mike Garafolo. In his last season with the Jets, Pryor started fifteen games, making 43 solo tacks and even forcing a fumble. Pryor is known to be a strong, physical presence when it comes to run defense, but he only broke up six passes last year.

Pryor has been inconsistent in his three-year tenure with the Jets.

This trade to Cleveland gives the young Pryor a chance to reinvent himself as a football player moving forward. His hard-hitting style is expected to work well with new defensive coordinator Greg Williams.
