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'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!

Ochocinco defends, works out with Pryor

Chad Johnson is an idiot and a media whore.  I could care less what he says.  How much credibility would any client of Rosenhaus have in this situation?  Isn't Chad the same guy that talked Super Bowl when the Bengals signed TO.  If Palmer goes through with his retirement talk, maybe the Bengals would be interested.  We will see.
