Breaking: Jets to release Terrelle Pryor

The Jets made a surprising move today:

Pryor had been looking good over the past few games, scoring two touchdowns in the past two weeks. However, the Jets need his roster spot and are obviously prepared to take the risk that someone else will pick him up.

Speaking to ESPN's Rich Cimini a day or so ago, Pryor said he was hoping to play on Sunday and planning to dominate if he did.

The Jets are expected to activate rookie wide receiver Deontay Burnett from the practice squad today but we'll update once that's confirmed.
