Seattle Seahawks quarterback Terrelle Pryor said Tuesday he was wrong when he broke NCAA rules while playing for Ohio State, but he supports the recent federal court decision giving college athletes the rights to sell their names and likenesses. "I'm glad they did that," Pryor said on 710 ESPN Seattle. "The only thing I will say about that is when I was at Ohio State, all you see is red jerseys in the stands and you see a lot of No. 2s [Pryor's number at Ohio State]. I'll leave it at that." In December 2010, at the end of his junior year, the NCAA ruled Pryor and four of his teammates would be suspended for the first five games of the 2011 season for selling memorabilia. Pryor ended up leaving Ohio State and was selected by the Oakland Raiders in the 2011 supplemental draft. He was traded to Seattle this April for a seventh-round draft choice. "It was a rule, I broke it and I was wrong for that," Pryor said of his NCAA violations. "At the time, I was getting in trouble -- and I don't even call it being in trouble. I don't think helping my mother, who was in need, is being in trouble. I'll never regret that. The only thing I regret is hurting certain fans, teammates and coaches."
