Calvin Pryor's absence from the Jets organized team activities (OTAs) lasted only one day.
The Jets' safety was apparently back with his teammates and out at practice for Day 2 of the OTAs on Wednesday. A league source confirmed to SNY that Pryor was expected to attend, and one report indicated he was present. However, there was no media access on Wednesday, and Pryor was not shown in any photos or videos on the Jets' social media posts.
All OTA practices are voluntary, according to NFL rules. Still, the absence of the 24-year-old Pryor on Day 1 was noteworthy given his current situation. The Jets recently drafted safeties in both the first and second rounds, and then declined to pick up the fifth-year option on his contract, which will make him an unrestricted free agent next March.
It wasn't known if his absence was related to any of that. Pryor hasn't said why he didn't attend, and he's not required to give any explanation or even notice to his team. All Jets coach Todd Bowles would say about it on Monday was that "It's voluntary."
The next time a Jets OTA is open to the media is next Tuesday. There is no mandatory practice for Jets players until their full-team mini-camp June 13-15.
