Trevor Pryce: Stay or Go?

Trevor Pryce was selected by the Denver Broncos in the first round of the 1997 NFL Draft. He played in Denver before going to the Ravens in 2006. In 2010 the Ravens cut him during the season with every intention of resigning him, but the Jets swooped in and signed him.

Pryce has accomplished a lot in his career. He won championships in first first two seasons. He has made four Pro Bowls and two All Pro teams. The 6'5" 290 pound lineman has nothing to continue playing for aside from love of the game.

He was quietly a very productive reserve for the Jets in 2010. Despite being injured and appearing as a situational player, he was second on the team with 17 quarterback pressures. Pryce is an excellent 3-4 lineman on passing downs. He is strong and quick off the snap. There were a few plays during the year where it looked like he knew the snap count as well as the quarterback.

The 35 year old loves Rex Ryan. He also would be likely to take the league minimum to return to the Jets since he has accomplished a career's worth. In fact, the team might have to talk him into returning. I think that would be worth it. There is no such thing as too much defensive line depth, particularly when it is cheap. Resigning Pryce becomes even more important if Shaun Ellis goes elsewhere. The Jets will need to fill a pass rushing void on the defensive line. The team also needs more pass rushers, not less.

I vote stay. How do you vote?
