Rex Ryan glowed about his first-round safety, Calvin Pryor, following Saturday's rookie minicamp.

"I have a funny feeling he's going to become one of the more popular Jets as this thing gets going," Ryan said. "Smart, instinctive and is on top of it. It's rare that it comes easy and you can see it in there. It's just the way he communicates, just everything. So he has really been everything that we've wanted and then some."

Oh boy, did Rex just find his new football crush?

While the coach was talking up the safety, Pryor was talking up talk.

"That's the main reason I don't wear a mouthpiece," Pryor said of talking trash, per The Star-Ledger. "When you're able to talk trash and you go out there and make plays and hit guys hard, it's just kind of an intimidation factor: 'This guy, he means what he says and he's ready to play.' It's just all fun and games for the most part."

Pryor said trash talking is the persona he displays on the field, not off the field. The 21-year-old hitter said he won't back down because he's in his first year in the NFL.

"With me being a rookie, that doesn't mean anything," he said. "I am who I am. I'm going to talk trash. I'm going to be myself. People who don't like it are just going to have to get used to it."

Pryor was asked if he'd even talk trash to an elite receiver like Andre Johnson.

"He's human, right?" he asked rhetorically. "I have no problem with it at all. We're all football players."

Pryor's brazen attitude sounds eerily similar to that of a man we used to know. Now, who was that guy? Oh, right, the old Rex Ryan.

As long as he backs it up with his play I am all in. Sherman talks a lot but backs it. That's why I like him
