    Started out looking like he was going to be a decent role player on the DL. Nagging injuries have taken their toll and the team has decided to move on. Best of luck to Mr. Pryor in his future endeavors, be it in the NFL or elsewhere.

    Never thought a guy with a first name like 'Myron' was ever going to amount to something special. :cool:

    Long overdue. The guy needs to get his healther in order. He has back issues and his ridiculous pop belly did him no favors. He was simply too fat for his body frame.

    Best of luck Myron

    I always thought you were hard done by getting fined for that hit on Favre.

    I hope you get healthy soon.

    That fine was ridiculous. I'll always have a soft spot for Pryor for whacking Favre (legally) like that.

    The writing was on the wall with the recent machinations, I guess. Though, I'd hope he would get one last shot to prove himself with the Patriots.

    He started out great.

    Obviously no team willing to part with a seventh round pick for him. Sure the Patriots must have made offers the past week.

    He may not have passed his physical prior to working out.

    This gotta be it. We don't discard the rare appearances of guys who can actually rush the passer.

    I was thinking the same thing. Either that or he didn't show up at all for "voluntary" activities...

    I think it's pretty obvious he showed up fat and out of shape so they decided to cut loose.

    I don't know why that bothers me so much. But just in general, I can't stand when people refer to a sports player with Mr. in front. I'm sorry, I was just about to hit the like button and now I can't justify doing so.

    I'm only surprised that it took this long. Still, best of luck to him going forward.

    Why?
    Is this true for you for all personalities? Like if someone referred to Bruce Springsteen as Mr Springsteen would that bother you? I'm honestly just curious.

    No I just mean on the internet in general. In real life it's perfectly fine when you're talking to someone to refer to them as Mr. Personally I'd refer to Springsteen as "Bruce." It's just an obscure thing that annoys me like the small triangle on the bottom of the windshield that the windshield wipers don't get. I guess on the internet, I feel so used to just calling people by their first, last or full name since I'm not addressing them in public.

    He was special to me when he knocked Lord Farve out, and out of the game back in 2010. It was a beautiful thing, Myron absolutely flattened him.

    I remember the Favre hit...

    ...and then for some reason, then 2011 season opener against the Phins stuck on my head. We put great pressure on Henne (over 50% of passing downs were recorded at least as hurried) and Pryor had an awesome game despite only recording half a sack.

    I propably remember that so well, because of the 2010 season our pass rush was so horrible and that 2011 season opener was a glimpse of hope which soon faded when Pryor got injured in the following game.

    Wish him the best!

    Disappointing, but not unexpected. I'm thinking the speculation that he failed a physical are correct. Otherwise, why not wait to see what he does in camp?

    who would have thought Sea Bass and Edelman were going to be the only two players out of all those 2009 picks (12?) that stuck? I guess they got the LS out of it too.

    Its been 5 years. Not a lot of teams have many of their draft picks on their roster after 5 years.
