ALAMEDA -- A potential bonus of Terrelle Pryor's five-game suspension to begin his NFL career, in which he could not practice with the team and could only have individual workouts?Pryor said he was able to glean knowledge from Al Davis before the Raiders owner passed away last weekend."I talked to him a couple times a week," Pryor told FM radio station 93.7 The Fan in Pittsburgh. "Once a week at least."It was just talking to a legend like that, him just passing away ... it sucked. I couldn't believe it. I was in disbelief. I didn't know the guy that long, but just from talking to him and how passionate he is it is amazing just talking to him on the phone.
"You just get a buzz and butterflies in your stomach because he just talks about winning. He's so passionate about the game and so passionate about Oakland. It amazed me and my heart goes out to his family and he was a great guy."Pryor, a stereotypical height-weight-speed Davis draft pick, began practicing Wednesday. He also reportedly told The Fan he would not be a receiver in any packages but could potentially be the quarterback on a Wildcat play.
