Report: Jets safety Calvin Pryor chronically late to meetings

New York Jets rookie safety and first-round draft pick Calvin Pryor has been chronically late for meetings this season, according to ESPN.

Pryor was benched against the Pittsburgh Steelers, a 20-13 win where Jaiquawn Jarrett had two interceptions, one sack and one fumble recovery.

Pryor played no snaps on defense and just lined up on special teams. Jarrett played every snap on defense.

"We were trying to line up guys that we think deserve it, whether it's in the classroom, on the practice field, or in meetings, being on time for meetings," Jets coach Rex Ryan when asked why Jarrett over Pryor. "[Jarrett] does a great job. He's dependable and has been playing well. Those are the reasons we do that. We thought we were going to play all of them, but it really never turned out [that way]. We just played the hot hand."

Pryor has no interceptions, no forced fumbles and no fumble recoveries after being drafted 18th overall out of Louisville.
