Terrelle Pryor turning down CFL offer

COLUMBUS, Ohio -- IT looks like the Saskatchewan Roughriders have acquired the negotiating rights to Terrelle Pryor and have spoken to Pryor's lawyer Larry James about bringing the former Ohio State quarterback to the Canadian Football League.

Roughriders general manager Brendan Taman told The Associated Press on Wednesday that the team owned Pryor's CFL negotiation rights and was very interested in the 6-foot-6, 233-pound quarterback. Roughriders general manager Brendan Taman said that Pryor is a heck of an athlete and the only thing that concerned him was his passing ability. The off the field problems at Ohio State did not concern him when asked. Pryor's attorney Larry James said he did not talk with Pryor about his CFL options yet but would do so in the coming week.
This is an update to my previous blog above. James said the offer from the CFL "was not sufficient to whet Pryor's taste buds." Pryor will focus on entering the NFL supplemental draft. And believes OSU will provide the letter necessary to join.
