Alex Boone had nothing nice to say about his former Ohio State teammate Terrelle Pryor.
The Minnesota Vikings signed Alex Boone to give their offensive line an infusion of nastiness.
Apparently, Boone isn’t only nasty on the playing field. He can also bring it in interviews.
Last week during a chat with KFAN, Boone unleashed a truly nasty take about his former Ohio State teammate Terrelle Pryor.
Boone was asked to talk about the various QBs he played with on the Buckeyes and when he got to Pryor things turned very negative (via Cleveland.com):
"“Unfortunately I had Terrelle Pryor, too,” Boone said on KFAN in Minnesota. “I could not stand any minute with him.“The kid was so arrogant at the time. I hated everything about him.”"
So when Boone wanted to punch Clay Matthews that one time, I guess that wasn’t the first time Boone ever wanted to punch a fellow player?
Wanting to punch someone on the opposing team is one thing, but wanting to punch your own quarterback when you’re an offensive lineman is something else altogether.
Hopefully Boone has more positive feelings about Teddy Bridgewater!
The nastiness didn’t end there for Boone. Later in the interview he was told that Pryor is currently playing wide receiver for the Browns and his response was absolutely priceless:
"Boone also apparently didn’t know that Pryor is a receiver for the Browns.“He’s still playing?” he asked."
Going to be interesting if Boone and Pryor ever show up at the same OSU reunion together.
But you do have to love Boone’s straight-from-the-hip approach. Boone is turning into the new Jared Allen: a guy who entertains on and off the field.
And yes, Terrelle Pryor has responded to Boone. He said he was “blindsided” by his former teammate’s remarks.
I guess so.
