Jim Tressel says Terrelle Pryor drops first pass at practice


Former Ohio State quarterback Terrelle Pryor has long been gone from the Buckeyes. He has experienced many trials in his NFL career. He played three seasons at quarterback with the Oakland Raiders and since being released, he has bounced from several teams around the league.

He has decided to switch positions from behind center to out wide catching passes since recently signing with the Cleveland Browns. According to College Football Talk, the Browns will host a practice in the Buckeyes Stadium and Pryor’s former coach doesn’t believe he will do well in his old stadium.

Former Ohio State head coach Jim Tressel joked around with Pryor and said that he really carried a burden during his time with the Buckeyes. He said that Pryor will probably get nervous in his first time back in his old stadium.

“You know that’s got to be thrilling to him. He loved that place and has carried a burden with him that didn’t end the way he wanted to,” Tressel said. “He’ll probably drop three passes in a row.”

It’s nice to see that this former player and coach duo have a good relationship going. Maybe they will be able to work together again some day.
