NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — New York Jets rookie Calvin Pryor hands out some huge hits. He might talk an even bigger game.

But quarterback Geno Smith says the safety out of Louisville should be careful about running his mouth during practice.

“I don’t think he’s really earned that right to talk amongst this locker room,” Smith said Thursday, according to ESPN New York.

Pryor has directed “a little bit” of chatter at his own team, Smith said, though so far the first-round pick has reserved his shots — at least his public ones — for New York’s rivals, professing his distaste for the Patriots and Giants.

“I think he knows his place, he knows his role and the more and more he gets comfortable I think you’ll hear him talking a little bit more,” Smith said.

Pryor has had nothing but good things to say about Smith, who has the upper-hand in the so-called quarterback competition with Michael Vick.

Despite delivering a verbal warning of sorts, the second-year signal-caller returned the favor Thursday.

“I think (Pryor) has a bright future here,” Smith said.
