Pryor sacrificed his final season with Ohio due to an NCAA investigation into the football team.
“God bless and thanks for support!” the quarterback wrote on his Twitter page. “Time to have a little fun!!”
Although Pryor won’t play until Week 6 of the regular season, his agent Drew Rosenhaus, tells AP that they accept that voluntarily. “It’s a small price to pay for him to have a chance to pursue his dream of playing in the NFL.”
