Terrelle Pryor's ridiculous suspension, and other musings

It’s likely that Pryor won’t play in the first five games,

decided in Monday’s supplemental draft, will need time to assess his skills and
decide whether it will try him at quarterback, receiver or tight end first.
Pryor could be an option for a few plays a game as the season opens, but even a lover of speed
demons like Raiders owner Al Davis probably wouldn’t send Pryor onto the field
without weeks of training.
