Terrelle Pryor Could Take NFL Supplemental Draft Case To Court

Former Ohio State quarterback Terrelle Pryor's status for the supplemental NFL draft is unclear, but it sounds like he's about to take matters into his own hands, as he might pursue a lawsuit that would allow him into the NFL. 

It's currently unclear whether Pryor is eligible for the supplemental draft, which is designed for players whose status has "changed in an unforeseen way," such as in the case of a player being dismissed from his team or missing the cut academically. Pryor would have to serve a five-game suspension if he had continued at Ohio State, due to his role in the scandal that has unfolded there. But he would still otherwise have been eligible for the rest of the season. He still had college eligibility, and he could have used it. 

If it turns out that Pryor is not eligible for the supplemental draft, he would have to wait until next year's regular draft and begin his NFL career in 2012. 

It's not yet clear what the basis of Pryor's legal argument might be.
