The Pittsburgh Steelers reportedly sent representatives to watch Jeanette High School and Ohio State tattoo aficionado Terrelle Pryor‘s pro day last week. One would think the Steelers would have no use for another QB but Pryor said in pre-draft interviews he would entertain the idea of moving to wide receiver. Not that the Steelers have any dire need at that position either. At 6’5 and running a 4.4/40, they’d probably make an exception for the right price.
It became moot a few minutes ago when the Oakland Raiders secured the rights to Pryor for a third round draft pick. Leave it to the Raiders to overpay by two rounds in the Supplemental Draft. Then again, he was the fastest quarterback to come out of college in the past three years. Oh, Grandpa Al, never change.

Sometimes you read something that is just too good to pass up.
This is a Pittsburgh Steelers blog. But sometimes I’ll write about other things related to the sports scene here in the Steel City. This is one of those times. And, hey, it does tangentially tie in with the Steelers in a roundabout way.
Pittsburgh high school phenom Terrelle Pryor has been suspended by the NFL. “Wait,” you may ask, “isn’t he still in college?” Indeed he is, although that will change when he’s taken in next week’s Supplemental Draft. The lucky team choosing Pryor will have to wait five weeks to see what they’ve gotten themselves into as Roger Goodell has proactively decided to suspend him for flouting NCAA rules.
God bless the Ginger Dictator. Only he would have the balls to punish a guy not even under his jurisdiction for an offense which isn’t even illegal under the by-laws of his league.
