TMZ Calvin Pryor’s stint in Cleveland is over — the former 1st-round draft pick has been CUT by the Browns after allegedly fighting one of his teammates before practice this week. The Browns had traded for Pryor during the off-season — grabbing him from the NY Jets in exchange for linebacker Demario Davis. NFL Network’s Mike Garafolo says the fight was with WR Ricardo Louis. Coach Hue Jackson says the issue is an “internal matter.” Jackson says there are no plans to release Louis. Pryor is still playing under his rookie contract — 4 years, $8.5 million.
Three months after the Cleveland Browns traded for safety Calvin Pryor, the team had decided to cut Pryor, because he got into a fight with teammate wide receiver Ricardo Lewis before practice this week. Information on what caused the fight has not yet been released, but Browns have no plans to cut Lewis, which leads us to believe that Pryor was the instigator of the altercation. The Browns also announced that the first overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft defensive end Myles Garrett would miss at least the first two weeks of the season with a high ankle sprain, so the 2017 season is off to a rough start for the Browns, as they prepare to face the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday.
