As Terrelle Pryor’s Ohio State career has come to an abrupt and premature end, a new beginning in the NFL has brought some interesting news. As Pryor begins the process of applying for the NFL’s supplemental draft, he has hired well-known agent Drew Rosenhaus, who represents some of the biggest “diva” players in the NFL. Two of his clients are Chad Johnson and Terrell Owens, if that’s any indication for you.
According to Rosenhaus, Pryor will hold a press conference at 2 PM EST tomorrow afternoon at the Fountainbleau Hotel in—where else—Miami Beach, Florida according to ESPN reporter Tom Farrey.
“There will be some heartfelt things he’s going to say. It’s going to be very genuine,” Rosenhaus said.
Pryor’s lawyer Larry James indicated that Pryor hiring an agent makes him immediately ineligible at Ohio State University.
“The university declares him ineligible,” James said. “Therefore, that is a prerequisite to being eligible for the supplemental draft.”
As if the NFL offseason couldn’t get any weirder, it is about to. The fact that we could potentially have Terrelle Pryor selected to a team in a supplemental draft before any teams sign free agents or are allowed to make trades is just wild to me.
No supplemental can take place after 10 days before the first training camp (chew on it, it took me a while also), so Pryor will likely be on an NFL team sometime in mid-July. I wrote previously on this stream that a couple of good fits for the talented quarterback would be Philadelphia and Pittsburgh, and I maintain that opinion.
I will have coverage of the Pryor presser tomorrow afternoon.
