Pryce speaks Dan Leberfeld

Jets DE Trevor Pryce –

“If you stay around the NFL long enough, nothing surprises you, including getting released in Week Four. I’m humbled that Rex wanted me to play here. Some other teams called. He’s such a loyal guy to his guys. [The Ravens] were only casting me off for a week. It came out of nowhere. It you are a vested (veteran), you get to pick and chose. I was brought here as a pass rusher. They took a calculated risk. I think they thought teams would call, but I don’t think they thought things wouldn’t happen so fast. Looking at their playbook, it was really, really similar to our playbook. When you get older, you can run fast, but not as many times in a row.
“I have friends on that team. Ed Reed, Kelly Gregg, Terrell Suggs, Jared Johnson, those guys will be my friends the rest of my live. I’m going to live in Maryland the rest of my life. John (Harbaugh) was very cool about it. He was as positive as he could be. It was a half hour talk. He said he really didn’t want to do it, but needed a spot until Monday. John was very candid that we were bringing him back Monday. My agent knew that if Rex called, that is where I was going.”
