The UFL generally is interested in former Ohio State quarterback Terrelle Pryor. One UFL team, however, specifically isn’t.
Former Chiefs, Browns, Redskins, and Chargers coach (should we just like the teams he didn’t coach?) Marty Schottenheimer is the new coach of the Virginia Destroyers, the transplanted Florida Tuskers. And Schottenheimer said during an appearance with “Johnny D and The 757 Club” on 102.1 FM and 1490 The Game that the Destroyers don’t want Pryor.
Schottenheimer began his response cautiously, hemming and hawing and talking about needing more information. Once he got warmed up, he was blunt.
“With all due respect, we’ve got a quarterback, and we’re ready to move forward with him,” Schottenheimer said.
Pryor is getting plenty of press because he has a recognizable name, that recognizable name has been in the press plenty of late, and there isn’t a lot of other pro football news happening right now. In the end, there’s a chance that no team will decide that the talent and potential outweigh the potential distractions.
