Former Ohio State Buckeye Terrelle Pryor and new agent Drew Rosenhaus will hold a press conference at 2 p.m. ET Tuesday. We're betting it will be the opening salvo of a PR onslaught to convince the public, and perhaps even a few NFL teams, that not only is Pryor a swell guy who got caught up in a bad situation at Ohio State, but he's also a legit NFL quarterback worthy of our attention.

What you won't see (though it would make the spectacle much more entertaining): Rosenhaus yelling "NEXT QUESTION!" as Pryor is in the background doing half-naked sit-ups.

Coincidentally, another Rosenhaus client, Chad Ochocinco, worked out with Pryor Tuesday and he couldn't quit raving about what he saw (via Twitter, where "tpeezy2" is Pryor's feed): 

"Media says @tpeezy2 is an NFL QB. I come out n see 4 myself n this mofo is good as hell. He messed up yes but got damn he can throw shhh!!!"

Followed five minutes later by this: "I meant to say the media said @tpeezy2 isn't NFL type QB, after running routes n seeing great timing n arm strength I beg to differ."

And NFL Films' Greg Cosell and SI.com's Tony Pauline beg to differ with Ochocinco.

But Chad wasn't done. One final tweet on the matter: "Last tweet about @tpeezy2 With the right coaching after what I saw today with my own eyes he can be a great QB."

If Ochocinco ever starts his own team, it sounds like Pryor will have a job. Otherwise, at this stage of the proceedings, NFL teams don't appear interested in taking a chance on a kid with questionable character and dubious ability. Still, we're pretty sure that won't slow up the Rosenhaus Propaganda Machine. The circus starts promptly at 2!

I hope your are wrong about that justjoe, jail for TP that is.  I don't think for a minute that TP is an NFL quarterback.  He can do some nice things, but I have long thought he was more hype than substance.  Still TP does have some tools and with the right coaching, work, effort, and some luck he may get a shot. 

Next if I am wanting to be taken serious by the NFL the LAST thing I want to do is is have any affiliation with Chad 'look at me' Ochocinco.  I would have selected another agent as Drew (by all reports) isn't really liked in NFL circles.  In my humble opinion I think this just another in a string of poor decisions by Pryor.  I wish him the best of look and hope he proves me wrong!

From looking at that picture of him and Chad he might have a chance as a TE if he can put some more weight on. He's talented and fast enough to be a receiving TE, if he could put some bulk on he might have a chance there. I just don't see how he's going to be a NFL QB.

So a guy who's opinions can rarely be taken seriously, is endorsing a guy with character issues and a severe lack of NFL-quality skills, who's represented by a guy that's basically the football equivalent of a used car salesman?

Basically that amounts to layers upon layers of exaggeration, hype, spin, finger-pointing, and fluff... and no substance to be found anywhere.

After reading this article to me it sounds like the biggest circus ring leader in the business (Drew Rosehaus) who represents the biggest circus clown in the business (Chad Ochocinco) are both trying to convince an impressionable young nomad to join the circus and become a top notch circus clown himself (Terelle Pryor).

Pryor's credibility just got worse, if could get any more worse, well it just did.  Rosenhaus is a money and media whore.  Ochocinco isn't even in the top 100 all time greatest receivers.  If you want to bump your cred Pryor...get Jerry Rice to back you, or have Warren Moon let you know how the CFL route went, and you agree with Warren.

You weren't even in the top 3 of best QB's in the Big 10 let alone top 20 of the entire country and now you think you can pull this off?  Good luck.

Wow, trouble meets with trouble.  Drew "Rack up the money up" is Pryor's agent.  They are a match made in heaven, 2 head cases.  I definately wouldn't touch Pryor now.  Pryor is not worth the NFL $$$ especially at QB.  I was never impressed with his "game"  Maybe he will be a late bloomer, maybe not.
