Terrelle Pryor Saga Continues as Former Buckeye Says No to the CFL
Terrelle Pryor is back in headlines again after denying a tentative offer to play in the
Canadian Football League. Apparently the former Buckeye is also not interested in speaking to the NCAA either. Pryor had announced on Tuesday he would not return to Ohio State for his senior season in the wake an NCAA suspension and an ongoing investigation.
The Canadian Football League’s Saskatchewan Roughriders own the CFL negotiating rights to the QB, and had extended him a tentative offer. However Pryor issued a statement through his lawyer Larry James stating he was not interested in playing in the CFL and is focused on the opportunity to be included in the NFL’s supplemental draft.
James also said that Pryor will no longer cooperate with NCAA investigators looking into Ohio State’s football program, ex-players and current players. “He doesn’t need a reason (to talk to them). He’s no longer a student-athlete,” said James, who added that Pryor doesn’t feel he owes the NCAA any answers. “They’re not going to give him or any other student-athlete any due process rights to speak of, so he’s moved on.”
