Pryor focused on NFL
Terrelle Pryor is not interested in playing in the Canadian Football League and is focused on the opportunity to be included in the NFL’s supplemental draft, Larry James, his attorney, said Thursday.
The Saskatchewan Roughriders own the CFL negotiating rights to Pryor and had extended him a tentative offer.
“They sent the package last night, I forwarded it to Terrelle and Terrelle said that he wasn’t interested today,” James said.
Asked if Pryor gave him a reason for his lack of interest in the Roughriders, James said: “He did not go into discussion. He just said he’s not interested in the Canadian Football League. Obviously the offer was not sufficient to whet his taste buds.”
James told ESPN’s Joe Schad that he believes Ohio State will provide a letter that will show Pryor would not have been an eligible student-athlete moving forward, which should help Pryor in his cause to be eligible for the supplemental draft due to special circumstances.
