Jets rookie Calvin Pryor: ‘We hate the Patriots’

06.06.14 at 2:17 pm ET

Rookie safety Calvin Pryor isn’t afraid to jump right into the Patriots-Jets rivalry.

The first-round pick out of Louisville was asked Thursday if anyone in the Jets’ organization explained to him how much he’s supposed to hate Tom Brady and the Patriots. Pryor, who has already made some headlines in New York for his outspoken approach, told SportsNet New York’s Daily News Live that he was already well aware of how he was supposed to feel about Brady and New England.

“Yeah, man,” Pryor said. “We don’t like Tom at all. When I first came here, that was one of the first things I heard about: We hate the Patriots, and we hate the Giants.

“That’s what everybody was telling me. We hate those guys, and I look forward to playing them this season.”

The Patriots face the Jets twice this year — Oct. 16 (in Foxboro) and Dec. 21 (at MetLife Stadium).
