First things first, rest in peace Calvin Pryor's career. As any football fan knows, the day you join the Cleveland Browns is the day you become irrelevant to the football world. Anyways, Pryor was traded to the Browns for Demario Davis. If the name Demario Davis sounds familiar it's probably because he was on the Jets for 4 years prior to last year. The Jets let him walk in free agency and then a year later they trade a former first round pick to get him back. Granted Pryor hadn't lived up to his 1st round pick potential, but how can this trade not look bad for the Jets.
The Jets had this linebacker already, obviously he wasn't special enough then for them to resign him, so makes him so special now that they were willing to trade for him. I understand the Jets had no place for Calvin Pryor after they drafted Jamaal Adams, although getting a guy they already had and that is only getting older doesn't make much sense. Just goes to show Pryor's trade value wasn't really worth much.
The Browns won this trade without a doubt, got rid of Demario Davis' contract, and they added a young safety at a good price. If Pryor pans out to be what the Jets drafted him to be in 2014, then the Browns are going to be very fucking thrilled with this deal. Peppers and Pryor could make a nice young tandem in the back of that secondary. Finally seems like the Browns have a plan and they're excuting it nicely. As for the Jets, they look as lost as ever with this head scratcher of a deal. They get a solid, yet nothing special linebacker, and they got rid of the "bust" that was taking up roster space. Browns are winners for once, it might be a small step forward, however moving forward is always better than moving backwards.
