Tensions High in Jets/Redskins Joint Practices Involving Former Redskins Now Jets WR Terrelle Pryor

There’s no love lost between Terrelle Pryor and the Redskins, Matt Stypulkoski of NJ Advance Media reports.

The Jets’ wide receiver and his former team came into this week’s joint practices surrounded by controversy. But for the most part, they’ve stayed out of trouble.

That changed Tuesday, though.

After Pryor went one-on-one with Redskins’ safety D.J. Swearinger, the two started jawing back and forth. That led to Swearinger throwing a fake punch, which Pryor fell for – and flinched in a major way.

That incident was just one of a few during the teams’ final joint practice on Tuesday.

Jets defensive end Nathan Shepherd got into a shoving and wrestling match with Shawn Lauvao during team drills, drawing a crowd. A little earlier, a full-team skirmish broke out between the Jets’ offense and Redskins’ defense, though no punches were thrown. Jets’ defensive back Rashard Robinson got into a verbal war with Redskins’ tight end Cam Sims during 7-on-7 drills, too.

That was tame compared to Sunday’s practice, though. The first joint workout between the two teams devolved into chaos with a handful of large fights, which Todd Bowles later admonished.
