The Wait Is Over: Terrelle Pryor Is Eligible For The NFL’s Supplemental Draft

After a protracted waiting game, the NFl finally handed down its ruling: former Ohio State quarterback Terrelle Pryor will be eligible for the league's supplemental draft, which will take place on Monday. However, there's a bit of a punishment along with it: he won't be able to practice or play for the first five games of the season, due to "decisions that undermine the integrity of the eligibility rules for the NFL Draft." While the carrying over a college suspension to the pros decision to hand Pryor a suspension that just happens to be the same length as the one he would have had to serve at Ohio State confuses us, it's better than Pryor not being eligible at all. And for all the doubts about him ever becoming a viable NFL quarterback, Pryor is a big guy and an excellent athlete, so it's hard to imagine there's no way he could help a team. Now, at least, we know we'll find out. (Photo via)
