PITTSBURGH (93-7 The Fan) – The Fan’s Andrew Fillipponi is joined by former Jeanette standout and current quarterback for the Oakland Raiders Terrelle Pryor who is constantly trying to improve his game through an impressive daily routine.

The way Pryor was forced to begin his NFL career was mentally taxing but things have got much better.

Pryor was confident that his hard work ethic would serve him well as the Raiders went through a regime change.

He was humbled by the way he came into the league and it motivates him to work even harder. Pryor would have liked to participate in the NFL combine and feels that he would have outperformed everyone there.

The suspension cost Pryor a possible first-round selection. The suspension pretty much blind-sided him and it hurt him that he had to deal with that.

Pryor believes that he could be in the NBA right now if he decided that he wanted to but defending Lebron is another thing. He still considers Jim Tressell a mentor who he is close with.

Also, Pryor says he and Antonio Brown are going to be running a camp in Pittsburgh in May.
