Terrelle Pryor asks NFLPA to join his appeal

Former Ohio State star and current Raiders quarterback Terrelle Pryor is scheduled to miss the first five games of the 2011 season due to a suspension from the NFL. That suspension stemmed from Pryor's decision to leave college with a five-game suspension waiting for him in Columbus.

Pryor's camp went back and forth on whether or not they would appeal the suspension, and while it appeared they might bail on appealing, Pryor ultimately alerted the NFL and NFLPA he would appeal the suspension, following the Colts hiring of former OSU coach Jim Tressel.

The next step is formally asking the NFPA to join the appeal which, according to the NFL Network's Albert Breer, Pryor did on Friday. It's believed that the NFLPA could file the appeal as early as Monday.

As you'll recall, the NFLPA hasn't been exactly thrilled at the news of Pryor's suspension, because it represents a dangerous precedent in terms of future control for the NFL over players leaving college early.

Which precisely why there shouldn't have ever been a question about Pryor appealing. This isn't exactly the sort of situation where the players want to just lay down and let the league have its way, setting a precedent for suspending players for actions that were committed while they weren't even in the league.

""Pryor ultimately the suspension, following the hiring of ."

Did he not hear the Colts "suspended" Tressel for the first 6 games?  Guess how far that logic's going to get him...
