It’s fitting, we suppose, that one of the highest-profile former college football players in Ohio has found a supporter in one of the highest-profile soon-to-be-former pro football players in Ohio.
Then again, geography has little to do with Chad Ochocinco’s public praise (via Twitter) of Terrelle Pryor. The fact that Robin has found a new Batman surely has a lot to do with the fact that they have a common Alfred.
Access to agent Drew Rosenhaus constitutes access to his clients, including Ochocinco, who already has worked out with Pryor and who likes what he sees.
“Unbelievable arm strength n superb timing with it just being our first day,” Ochocinco said. “The media said [Pryor] isn’t NFL type QB, after running routes n seeing great timing n arm strength I beg to differ. . . .
“With the right coaching after what I saw today with my own eyes he can be a great QB.”
And so the process for which Rosenhaus was hired already has begun, in earnest. Given a widespread presumption that Pryor won’t be a quarterback but a receiver at the next level, Rosenhaus is doing everything he can to turn that around, and quickly.
