The Eagles meet the Raiders this Sunday. We mention this because on Wednesday, Eagles running back LeSean McCoy, who played at the University of Pittsburgh and went to high school in Harrisburg, PA, was asked if he ever crossed paths with Raiders quarterback Terrelle Pryor, who grew up in Jeannette, PA.
LeSean McCoy with line of day on Terrelle Pryor: "Yeah, I know him. I tried to recruit him to #Pitt. But we couldn't afford him." #OhioState
― Matt Lombardo (@MattLombardo975) October 30, 2013Just so we're clear: McCoy was joking. Still, it's hilarious.
LeSean tried to recruit Pryor to Pitt. Said he couldn't afford it. Immediately then said he was kidding.
― Jimmy Kempski (@JimmyKempski) October 30, 2013Pryor was apprised of McCoy's remarks but apparently wanted no part of that conversation.
Pryor didn't answer the question when asked if LeSean McCoy recruited him to Pitt. Gave some strange answer about McCoy being a great back.
