Terrelle Pryor, a prized high school recruit and former quarterback of the Ohio State Buckeyes, announced his 31-city tour before deciding the team he will sign with as an undrafted free-agent rookie. Like his decision to delay his intent on the National Signing Day three years ago, Pryor will make his career choice at his discretion, regardless of the NFL schedule.
“I’ve narrowed my choice to a few teams in the AFC East and NFC East. I consider the San Francisco Metro area a dark-horse. Of course, Dallas came in with a strong push,” said Pryor, who is now sporting a new, complimentary “Tressel Can Lick My Balls”-tattoo from Fort Worth Ink and Piercing.
ESPN Insider Chris Mortensen believes that the Jets, the Giants and Bears are the front runners because New York and Chicago have the greatest concentration of small businesses that could provide improper benefit to the 6-foot, 6-inch quarterback with poor mechanics and poorer work ethic.
“Meadowlands BMW already offered him a free M5,” said Pryor. “In addition, Secaucus Tattoo and Piercing has put in a RFP (Request for Proposal) that would recreate Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel on his back.”
John Elway Chevrolet in Denver had the right to match any offer with a comparable vehicle. But founder and Hall of Fame Broncos QB John Elway said his company wouldn’t go as high as Pryor might like.
“We were prepared to go as high as an Impala or a pimped out Malibu,” said Elway. “But when he wanted a Corvette, we weren’t willing to match Staubach Saab [in Irving, Texas] or Foxboro Mercedes. Besides, my son loves Tim Tebow who is still on his first free Silverado.”
While a feeding frenzy appears to be building, Pryor said his focus is where it’s always been.
“I want to go play for a championship team and drive whatever vehicle, wear whatever bling and drink whatever necessary to bring home the Super Bowl,” Pryor said. “And I want to be on a winning team that will enable me to sell at least four championship rings on eBay.”
