Rosenhaus Says Pryor Won’t Appeal 5-Game Suspension

Terrelle Pryor’s agent says the Raiders’ new quarterback will not appeal the five-game suspension handed down by the NFL last week. Drew Rosenhaus told ESPN’s Colleen Dominguez on Tuesday that despite conflicting comments from Pryor and his attorney over the past week, there will be no appeal.

Pryor had said at his pro day Saturday in Greenburg, Pa., that he would not appeal his suspension, but on Monday night in a live phone interview during the second half of “Monday Night Football” on ESPN, Pryor said that he would appeal the ban if that’s what Raiders owner Al Davis wanted him to do.

Pryor can’t practice until he’s under contract, and he had yet to even travel to the West Coast by the time the team ended practice in the evening. New coach Hue Jackson was optimistic that Oakland would reach a deal by the end of the week with Pryor, whom the team selected in the third round of the NFL’s supplemental draft on Monday.
