Pryor has hearing for suspension appeal
Thursday, September 15, 2011
ALAMEDA, Calif. (AP) -- Suspended Oakland Raiders quarterback Terrelle Pryor had a hearing with Commissioner Roger Goodell to overturn his five-game ban.
Pryor met with Goodell and members of his staff on Thursday. Pryor's agent, Drew Rosenhaus, says it was a productive meeting and that he appreciated Goodell and the union taking time to meet with Pryor.
Pryor was selected by the Raiders in the third round of the supplemental draft on Aug. 22. Goodell suspended him, however, for the season's first five games for manipulating his eligibility for that draft.
Pryor originally said he would not contest the ban but changed his mind and filed the appeal through the union.
