Cleveland Browns release safety Calvin Pryor after reported fight with teammate

The Browns have released safety Calvin Pryor, the team confirmed Thursday afternoon.

According to NFL Network analysts Ian Rappaport and Mike Garafolo, the 25-year-old defensive back got into a fight with teammate Ricardo Louis before practice Thursday. It is unknown what started the fight, or what Louis' eventual fate will be.

A former first round pick out of Louisville, Pryor spent the last three seasons with the New York Jets, where he made 191 tackles and intercepted two passes. The Browns acquired him three months ago in a trade for receiver Demario Davis, and he was expected to start at safety alongside rookie Jabril Peppers.

The news of Pryor's release goes with the announcement that number one overall pick Myles Garrett will miss time with a high ankle sprain. The Browns will open the season this Sunday against the Pittsburgh Steelers at FirstEnergy Stadium. Pittsburgh quarterback Ben Roethlisberger has thrown for more passing yards (5,490) against Cleveland than any other player in NFL history.
