Geno Smith: Calvin Pryor hasn’t “really earned the right” to talk trash

Jets rookie safety Calvin Pryor likes to talk trash.  His head coach likes it.  One of his teammates doesn’t.

Especially because it appears that some of the trash talk currently is being directed at Pryor’s own team.

“I don’t think he’s really earned that right to talk amongst this locker room,” quarterback Geno Smith told reporters on Thursday.  “But he does get it in a little bit.  I think he knows his place, he knows his role and the more and more he gets comfortable I think you’ll hear him talking a little bit more.”

Pryor already has fired shots at the Giants and the Patriots, and it’s still more than two months until the first game that counts.  So it’ll be interesting to see what he has to say when he gets more comfortable.

Especially if/when Geno starts throwing bounce passes in training camp.
