The NFL upheld Terrelle Pryor's five-game suspension on Friday, a ruling that will trigger a non-injury grievance on Pryor's behalf by the NFL Players' Association. NFL commissioner Roger Goodell told Pryor of the decision on Friday afternoon. "I believe it is a fair conclusion that he intentionally took steps to ensure that he would be declared ineligible for further college play and would be able to enter the NFL via the supplemental draft," Goodell said in a news release. "Taken as a whole, I found that this conduct was tantamount to a deliberate manipulation of our eligibility rules in a way that distorts the underlying principles and calls into question the integrity of those rules."
