The Jets are not going to pick up S Calvin Pryor's fifth-year option, making the safety a free agent following the 2017 season, a Jets source confirmed to SNY.tv's Ralph Vacchiano.
New York had been attempting to trade Pryor going into Friday night's second and third round of the NFL Draft, but were unable to make a deal.
Pryor appeared in 15 games for the Jets last season, making 62 total tackles while forcing one fumble.
In three seasons with New York, the 24-year old has two interceptions to go with 0.5 sacks and two forced fumbles.
The Jets selected safeties Jamal Adams and Marcus Maye in the first and second round of this year's draft.
