Cleveland Browns wideout Terrelle Pryor had six catches for a game-high 131 yards, but it was what he did after the game that will have everyone talking.
Following the Browns’ 27-13 loss to the Giants that dropped Cleveland to 0-12, New York cornerback Janoris Jenkins ripped the former Ohio State star on Twitter.
Jenkins’ comments normally would incite an equally volatile response, especially in the testosterone-driven NFL. Instead, Pryor killed Jenkins with kindness.
But Jenkins didn’t let up.
And neither did Pryor.
Now, if you’re wondering what set off these two, the talking began earlier in the week. When asked about the challenges of facing the 6-4, 230-pound Pryor, Jenkins was quite dismissive.
"He’s another receiver,” Jenkins told Giants reporters. "Just bigger.”
The comments got back to Pryor, who chose to focus on Sunday’s matchup.
Jenkins might have had the last laugh on the scoreboard, but Pryor’s individual effort on the field and his restraint off it spoke volumes.
