The Jets signed Trevor Pryce yesterday, reuniting the former Ravens defensive end with coach Rex Ryan a day after the Ravens cut him.

Pryce didn’t even need to tell his agent where he wanted to go.

“There are certain things you don’t have to say, like water’s good for you or don’t spend your money in one place,’’ Pryce said. “He knew that if Rex called, that’s where I was going, no matter what, no matter who else called.’’

Pryce will get a chance to make an immediate impact in Sunday’s game at Buffalo, primarily in passing situations. He ranks fourth in sacks among active players with 90.

Pryce, a 14-year veteran, was a four-time Pro Bowl selection with Denver and played under Ryan in Baltimore when he was defensive coordinator.

Pryce was waived Wednesday by Baltimore to make room for safety Ken Hamlin. Ravens coach John Harbaugh said it was likely the team would re-sign him, but the Jets pounced first.

“We saw it as an opportunity,’’ Ryan said. “As soon as we saw they released him, we started trying to get him here.’’

Wrong number
Charity-minded callers are getting intercepted by a phone-sex line because of a typo on Chad Ochocinco’s Cereal boxes.

The number is supposed to connect callers to Feed the Children, which benefits from sales of the Bengals wide receiver’s cereal. But the box has the wrong toll-free prefix, meaning callers get a seductive-sounding woman who makes risque suggestions.

Cincinnati-based Kroger Co. said it was pulling all Ochocinco cereal boxes from its grocery shelves because of the error.

Delhomme hopeful
Inactive the last two games because of a high ankle sprain suffered in the Browns’ season opener, quarterback Jake Delhomme returned to practice yesterday and hopes to play Sunday against the Bengals . . . Three-time Pro Bowl defensive tackle Tommie Harris said he wants to stay with the Bears even though they benched him for the game against the Packers Monday night. “No, I don’t want to be traded,’’ he said. “I love Chicago. I love my team.’’ But if he’s not playing? “That’s not a big deal for me,’’ he said. “It’s all about winning.’’ . . . Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis will not play Sunday at Buffalo, sitting out a second straight game with a strained left hamstring. The Bills will be without linebacker Andra Davis (shoulder) and defensive end Marcus Stroud (ankle) . . . Ravens running back Ray Rice said that his bruised right knee, suffered in last week’s win over the Browns, shouldn’t keep him from playing Sunday against the Steelers . . . The Seahawks released offensive lineman Chester Pitts, a day after coach Pete Carroll sounded hopeful Pitts might start this week.
