Terrelle Pryor's NFL career seems destined to become one long conflicting report. Thus far, his position with the Oakland Raiders, who drafted him in the third round of the 2011 NFL Supplemental Draft on Monday, has been in question, with reports suggesting he'll be a wide receiver and other suggesting he'll play the position he did in college, quarterback. We'll split the difference and just call him the new Kordell Stewart.
The other matter at hand has been Pryor's five-game suspension stemming from allegations that he took improper benefits while at Ohio State. The NFL chose to enforce the suspension handed down to Pryor while he was an NCAA athlete, though it's been unclear whether the former Ohio State quarterback will appeal.
Pryor has bounced back-and-forth, with people around him giving reporters conflicting statements about whether the yyoung quarterback plans to appeal. Even Pryor left the question open-ended during a Monday Night Football interview, saying the decision about whether or not to appeal would be up to Al Davis. Now, Drew Rosenhaus has come to the rescue.
Drew Rosenhaus told ESPN's Colleen Dominguez on Tuesday that despite conflicting comments from Pryor and his attorney over the past week, there will be no appeal.
So that settles it, right? Right! Truth be told, who knows whether Pryor will fight the suspension, even if Rosenhaus said the new Raiders' quarterback will accept his punishment and move-on. One has to wonder if Al Davis will push Pryor to fight the five-game ban, because ... well, Al Davis.
