This is the moment every member of the Washington Redskins secondary has been waiting for. The moment Terrelle Pryor would be served up on a platter and they'd actually be given the tools to go to work on him. Last year was a notoriously frustrating time for Redskins DBs who couldn't put their hands on the resident diva in DC. The Redskins secondary immediately made up for lost time once they were taken off the leash and could go 1 v. 1 with the new Jets wideout.

DJ Swearinger had some things to say and almost swung at Pryor.pic.twitter.com/ltVjFvOdbe— NFL Update (@MySportsUpdate) August 14, 2018
I've never met Pryor, but something about the way in which Washington responded to this simple pass break up tells me these feelings are strong and they've been brewing for quite some time.
Pryor might be a real gentleman once you get to know him, but this 31 second clip of pure bliss and aggression had me convinced Pryor was public enemy number 1 in DC. Kudos to DJ Swearinger for letting Pryor know he was about that action despite not even having pads on. That fake left-hand jab followed up by the quick walk away is a veteran move only a savvy scrapper know hows to pull.

There would be no revenge for Pryor even when he got the best of the Washington secondary. He knew better than to start a fight he couldn't finish. Even if he stands at least four inches taller and 40 pounds heavier than anyone in the Redskins secondary, there's clearly no stopping an angry Swearinger.
It's not the size of the dog in the fight, it's the size of fight in the dog.
