The Indianapolis Colts have decided not to use former Ohio State coach Jim Tressel as a replay consultant until the seventh game of the season.

Colts vice chairman Bill Polian said earlier this week that Tressel won’t join the team officially until late October. The team last week announced it had hired Tressel as a game-day consultant to help determine when the team should challenge plays with a video review.

Over the past weekend, Colts owner Jim Irsay, head coach Jim Caldwell, Polian and Tressel dicussed the situation with NFL officials.

The Colts management team said that questions were raised with respect to of should he serve a suspension like Terrelle Pryor of the Oakland Raiders who is serving a five-game suspension and the other Ohio State players for NCAA rules violations. If Tressel were still at Ohio State, he would be serving a five-game suspension.

Raiders sign Pryor to 4-year contract


Former Ohio State quarterback Terrelle Pryor, who’s college career ended up being a disgrace and overshadowed all the good he achieved in three years, signed a four-year contract with Oakland Raiders.

Raiders take Pryor in third round of supplemental draft

There are several good things that are on Terrelle Pryor’s side by being drafted in the third round of Monday’s NFL supplemental draft by the Oakland Raiders.

He was drafted by a team known to turn troubled players into stars; the team has spent a decade looking for a franchise quarterback and former Ohio State teammate Chimdi Chekwa was drafted by the Raiders in the fourth round of the regular 2011 NFL draft. That might help with the transition of having someone else on the team that he knows.

Raiders personnel say that Pryor’s speed is what owner Al Davis fell in love with. Pryor has always been known for speed, size, his 6’5, 232-pound frame but his ability to be an NFL quarterback as been a question since his freshman year at Ohio State.

Currently, Jason Campbell is the starter for the Raiders and all he has on Pryor is experience, but not the talent.

Pryor can expect a nice pay check, but not like he would’ve had if he’d been drafted in the regular NFL draft.

ESPN and sports talks show have reported that Pryor is going to be offered a four-year deal around $2.36 million, which includes a $591,000 signing bonus.

No surprise, Mangini fired! Holmgren not a candidate

Every Browns fan got his wish earlier in the week when Mike Holmgren fired Eric Mangini as head coach.

Long before Mike Holmgren was hired to run the football operations, fans, media and NFL experts felt he was not a good fit for Cleveland.

Holmgren gave Mangini a chance this season to improve the team. But after two straight 5-11 finishes, a 10-22 overall record and the team having lost six of their eight games, a change was needed.

Holmgren said that it was difficult to fire Mangini because he is caring, bright and hard-working, but it had to be done.

The 62-year-old Holmgren would not say, but several NFL reports have said that the list of candidates could be New York Giants defensive coordinator Perry Fewell, Philadelphia Eagles offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg and Oakland Raiders offensive coordinator Hue Jackson.

Holmgren says the next head coach will have to: develop QB Colt McCoy, West Coast offense preferred, add stability to a team who has had 5 coaches since 1999.
