NFLN: Pryor to appeal after all

Rookie quarterback Terrelle Pryor will appeal his five-game suspension handed down by commissioner Roger Goodell, according to the NFL Network’s Albert Breer.

No word on when that appeal will take place. The Raiders are currently carrying only two quarterbacks with the release of Trent Edwards Saturday.

Of the Raiders cuts Saturday, one has landed on his feet. Free safety Stevie Brown said on his Twitter account, “goodbye Oakland, hello Carolina.”

Brown played in more than nine games last season so he is not eligible for the practice squad, so the assumption is he is on the 53-man roster.

The Raiders practice at 12:30 p.m. today in Alameda, with media availability to following practice. Practice squad members could trickle back into the facility today, but chances are the Raiders won’t make any announcements until it is complete.

    Pryor broke rules he knew he had to follow going in. He was a poor example of a leader of his team. Although I agree that he SHOULD NOT have to be suspended in the NFL…let’s not excuse bad behavior.

    ++++++++

    I never said lets excuse the infractions, however my point is that the NFL had ZERO jurisdiction in this matter. Also if the suspension was handed during the lockout Godell is not suspending players for any transsgressions that happened during the lockout…
    ======================================================
    Agreed

    ‘Sup fellas.

    Just FYI…The lil misses just called DirecTV to complain about the Sunday ticket deal. We were sitting here watching Pawn Stars and the commercial came on for free Sunday Ticket for new subscribers and it set her off. She called and said she didn’t think it was fair that we’d had it for 14 years now and new subs got it for free.

    The CSR knocked 20 bucks a month, or basically $120 off the price of our Sunday ticket.

    It ain’t free, but it works for me.

    I’ve heard some people complain that DirecTV wouldn’t work with them. Others have said they were offered free HBO or PPV movie credits to offset the price of the Sunday Ticket. I don’t know. It’s worth a shot.

    Heard it through the grapevine…..PS3 is having the ticket for people who don’t have NFL ticket!!

    I meant, I never said lest excuse the bad behavior.

    however, godell is way out of bounds, and set a precedent that can expose the league to litigation…

    Good news everyone!!! Sterling Moore cleared waivers and was added to the practice squad

    Raiders re-signed LB Ricky Brown.
    Brown spent the summer in Patriots camp, but he was with the Raiders as a special teamer, strong-side linebacker, and middle linebacker from 2006-2010. He’ll add depth with Travis Goethel (knee) out for the season

    They always try to set a new precedent or go around the parameters when an unpopular black athlete is involved….

    Big Ben gets accused of rape three times and uses the off duty cops he employs as security to intimidate his accuser and to tamper with the crime scene…..4 games.

    Pryor “undermines draft process” 5 games

    Don’t talk to me about black and white

    Wrong he didn’t deliberately embellishments anything. He told the truth, he was suspended for “undermining the draft process” by leaving school and trying to enter the supplemental draft. It was the NFL’s position that he still could have returned to play at OSU and the supplemtal draft OS only for those whose eligibility had changed since the draft. Though he had been ruled ineligible by the university in a letter for his cooperation with the investigation. It really is a suspension that has no grounds and clearly Goodell was extending the suspension from the NCAA to the NFL as a way of sending a message that they will not be used as a shelter for those whom are guilty of NCAA infractions. A message that he chose only to send when a black QB was involved and not when a white coach was hired. Heard he is looking into the vest hiring so lets see if a 5 game suspension is handed down to him.
    ————————————-
    Rosenhaus, smelling a ton of money to be made, approached the NFL before the Ohio State suspension was even announced. Rosenhaus played up the infractions, including some that eventually were dismissed, in order to burn the bridge back to OSU and get the kid into the draft. Goodell didn’t like the way it played out and felt they were gaming the system. He of course used the OSU suspension as a pretext, but the real issue was the way Rosenhaus attempted to secure Pryor’s eligibility in the supplemental draft.

    We need to be doing some PS shopping…LB, nickel CB, and DT…

    We need a big signing. Signing Lance Briggs would be super duper.

    Severeraiderz,

    There is a racial element to be sure.

    However, the bar is very low for all athletes.

    Big Ben should have gone to jail like Vick did. No question.

    Athletes are held to no standard of behavior. And the young kids, most of whom won’t sniff the pros, emulate them and try to follow their footsteps.

    Acting like an athlete in regular society gets you nowhere.

    But again the hypocrisy. Those Pittsburgh fans (Middle America) love cheering on Big Ben and the rest of that team damm the consequences.

    I still do not see where the violation.
    Does the NFL have rules on the books to handle this situation?
    It appears that rosen just exercised a loop hole.

    The NFL is open for litigation…

    Based on your statements this sounds personal…
    Futhermore, he cannot use what happened in college as a pretext, a Lawyer will eat his lunch as he has no jurisdiction…

    Pryor needs to take his medicine or risk sabotaging his already dicey reputation. I don’t think he fights anything unless he’s put up to it. In which case, the kid is being used. What else is new.

    Goodell just played the game with the end result being the suspension gets lifted him knowing the NFL can’t suspend a player for breaking NCAA rules…

    Correct??

    Pryor is an ok kid, just misguided at time. He’ll get on the right path.

    That would be the business there…any word on price?

    So he should take his medicine…lol

    Reputations can be repaired, see mike vick.

    Earlier you were speaking from a perspective as if you had some extra intel or knowledge about the situation.

    In any of your above statements you have yet to clearly illucidate what NFL policy was violated.

  • Raiders Are my Team

    I still do not see where the violation.

    The NFL is open for litigation…

    —————

    And here is how the battle will take place:

    The NFL and its conspirators will try to turn down Pryors suspension because it is another beat down of Al Davis.

    But Al and his litigious self and his bevy of lawyers will find a way to make the NFLs’ ruling wrong, out of bounds, unconstitutional, so to speak. And they will find a hole, you can bank on it.

    When all this starts to surface in a week or less, Pryors’ suspension will be put on hold and he will now occupy a roster spot.

    In the mean time, Al and his legal team continue to fight the NFL, maybe tossing out the idea Al Davis and the Raiders may even sue the NFL over this. And Al and his lawyers will find a way. Gauranteed.

    With the NFLs’ reputation already tarnished because of the lockout, they toss the suspension into the trash knowing Al won’t settle for anything less.

    What this does to future violations and NCAA rules is anyones guess, but there will be a ‘Pryor’ rule of some kind so the NFL does not have to face this type of embarrassment again.

    Another Al Davis vicory in the courts.

  • redshirt

    Makes sense now that the NFL is feeling heat to “suspend” Tressel from advising the Colts during the season. Pryor’s got a much better chance of getting the suspension overturned.

    And, oh yeah, there’s only 2 QBs on the roster. Raiders might have encouraged Pryor to appeal or knew an appeal was coming. Either way they decided to keep only 2 QBs.
