Last week, coach Marty Schottenheimer of the Virginia Destroyers said that he’s not interested in former Ohio State quarterback Terrelle Pryor. This week, coach Jerry Glanville of the Hartford Colonials expressed concern regarding Pryor.
“If a player’s ability helps the product on the field, I’m all for it,” Glanville told Paul Doyle of the Hartford Courant. “But you’re taking a guy — anybody and I’m not saying any guy in particular — and his reputation actually hinders the product on the field, then I don’t care about his reputation or his name. Because to me, this league is all about the product. That’s what we’re selling.
“Our league is an unselfish league. You can’t be a selfish person to play in the UFL. In the NFL, there are selfish people. From what he did and from what happened to him in college . . . I don’t know him and you never know until you meet a guy, he might be the greatest kid you’ve ever met. But if he’s selfish, there’s no room for him in this league.”
That said, Pryor doesn’t seem to be thinking about the UFL, regardless of whether he should. His agent, Drew Rosenhaus, is touting Pryor as a first-round pick in the supplemental draft, which means that Pryor wants to play only in the NFL.
