  8. Sunday notes: Cheers for Pryor, not Johnny

    Rich Cimini

    Thoughts and observations on the New York Jets (better late than never): 1. No, Johnny, no: Johnny Manziel never was a consideration for the Jets with the 18th pick. Never. Their target was safety Calvin Pryor. When the Baltimore Ravens selected l...
