Former Ohio State quarterback Terrelle Pryor could appeal the five-game suspension levied by the NFL if he is selected in next week's supplemental draft, a decision that would add another layer of complexity to an already unprecedented situation.
Pryor was part of a list of eligible players distributed by the league who are eligible for the draft, but he won't be allowed to practice with the team that selects him until Week 6. Pryor gave up his final season with the Buckeyes following an investigation into the team's memorabilia-for-cash scandal.
Pryor's agent, Drew Rosenhaus, told The Associated Press on Thursday his client accepted the ban. But the player's attorney, David Cornwell, told ESPN Radio on Friday that it's "likely" the punishment will be appealed once Pryor signs an NFL contract.
