Pryor to meet with Goodell, confident in status?

The beginning of the 2011 season looms on the horizon, and for a few as-yet-drafted folks, so does the August 17 NFL supplemental draft. One of those folks is Terrelle Pryor, whose status for said draft is still up in the air.

To clear the air, Pryor is reportedly seeking to meet with Commissioner Roger Goodell on either Monday or Tuesday and determine exactly where he stands with the NFL. That's according to Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk, who also reports that Pryor has apparently "already shown that it was inevitable he was going to get kicked out of Ohio State."

This is important because the NFL's basis for keeping Pryor out currently revolves around his simply leaving school and hiring an agent. PFT also obtained a statement from Pryor's attorney, David Cornwell, in which Pryor's representation sounds confident that he'll end up eligible for the draft.

"We have been in discussions with the Commissioner’s office over the past week to address the NFL's concerns," Cornwell wrote. "I am confident that once the NFL has a full understanding of the facts, Terrelle will be part of Wednesday’s supplemental draft."

The supplemental draft is this Wednesday, which leaves very little time for Pryor to get approved by the NFL and then hold a pro day. Previously it was believed that at least three teams were interested in checking out what the former Buckeye had to offer, but because of Pryor's status, he had to postpone his earlier scheduled pro day.

Even without a pro day, though, someone will, we'd think, take a flier on Pryor anyway, simply based on his talent alone. Especially if it only cost them a sixth-round pick in 2012.

Why? What have the Bungles done to deserve him besides being quite possibly the worst franchise with the worst owner with the worst organisation? Even they don't deserve this spoilt boy/brat!

I hate him also along with Ohio State as they sat there for years saying how clean their program was.
But this is where you and  I think differently.
He was eligible until he hired a agent which made him uneligible and was his fault. Ohio State didnt ban him until he hired a agent. He could have played his games this year at Ohio State after he sat the 5 game suspension.
All of this he brought on himself. So he should have to wait until next years draft or go to Canada because he sure won't make it in the NFL as a quarterback.

Greatest Buckeye Ever! Jess Sayin'!!!!


Wow, what a strong argument!  Of what, I don't know (and I doubt anyone else does as well), but it sounds damn strong.
