ESPN’s “Outside The Lines” reports that a former friend of Terrelle Pryor’s witnessed the former Buckeye quarterback receive cash payments in exchange for signing memorabilia totalling between $20-thousand and $40-thousand dollars.
Pryor was allegedly paid by Dennis Talbot, a Columbus businessman and freelance photographer. The former associate said Pryor was paid $500 to $1,000 each time he signed, which was usually many times a week.
Pryor’s ex-friend added that the quarterback received preferential treatment throughout Columbus including thousands of dollars worth of free food, drinks and tattoos. The anonymous source, who claims he spent nearly every day with Pryor before their relationship soured about a year ago, also said the quarterback was granted access to free loaner cars from local dealerships.
