Terrelle Pryor responds to criticism from Alex Boone
Cleveland Browns wide receiver Terrelle Pryor has responded to recent criticism from Minnesota Vikings guard and former Ohio State teammate Alex Boone.
In an interview on KFAN in Minneapolis last week, Boone had harsh words about his experience playing with Pryor on the Buckeyes.
“Unfortunately I could not stand any minute with him,” Boone said, according to ESPN. “The kid was so arrogant at the time. I mean, I hated everything about him.”
When asked about Boone’s interview, Pryor seemed to attempt to put the issue to rest.
“When you're young—and you guys know this, all of us—you're different,” Pryor said Monday. “You act different. Your mind is wired completely different. I'm 18 years old meeting this guy.
“I wish him well. That's all I have to say.”
Pryor later took to Twitter with a more pointed response.
I'm a firm believer if you got a problem you say it to a man face not behind back! Guess everyone isn't brought up the same !— Terrelle Pryor SR (@TerrellePryor) August 8, 2016
Boone and Pryor played one year together during the former quarterback’s freshman year at Ohio State, when Pryor was named Big Ten Freshman of the Year.
Both players are currently competing for starting spots on their respective teams, with Pryor listed as a starter on the Browns’ first depth chart.
