Rosenhaus says Pryor won't appeal suspension

Posted by Josh Katzowitz

Depending on who you’re talking to at the time, Terrelle Pryor is either going to appeal his five-game suspension handed down by Roger Goodell or … he’s not going to appeal his five-game suspension handed down by Roger Goodell.

Pryor's Journey to Oakland
During his Pro Day, Pryor’s agent, Drew Rosenhaus, said he wouldn’t appeal the decision, but during an interview on the Monday Night Football telecast, Pryor said he would proceed however Raiders owner Al Davis wanted him to proceed (meaning if Davis said to appeal it, he would).

But now Rosenhaus wants to set the record straight, telling ESPN that Pryor will NOT appeal the suspension. Of course, that’s easy for Rosenhaus to say considering Pryor hasn’t signed a contract yet -- or even been out to Oakland to meet with his new bosses.

Yet, you could envision this leading to a sticky situation.

If Davis -- or CEO Amy Trask -- wants Pryor to appeal, what does he do? Blow off his boss or upset his mega-agent? And where does the NFLPA stand on the issue? What happens if Davis wants him to appeal and Pryor refuses, based on what Rosenhaus has said? Could Pryor go to the NFLPA for help in not appealing a suspension, and could the union protect him from Davis in that way?

I don’t know, but it’d one hell of a (hypothetical and, yes, far-fetched) conundrum that could get mighty interesting to watch.
