Virginia Tech Alum Eddie Royal: "We Really Could Use One Of Those Quarterbacks Ohio State Got"

Eddie Royal tweets about wanting one of Ohio State's talented quarterbacks.


Update: As we were reminded on Twitter, Royal is a Virginia Tech alum, so that is likely what he was referring to. In that case, yes Eddie, your alma mater, and everyone else's, could use one of the Buckeyes.

Earlier: Ohio State has an embarrassment of riches at quarterback. Starter Cardale Jones is a national championship game winner, J.T. Barrett was a Heisman candidate last year, and former star quarterback Braxton Miller is now a current star receiver. The talent at that position is so good, that at least one NFL receiver is envious. New Chicago Bear Eddie Royal tweeted, and quickly deleted, that he wished his team had one of Ohio State's signal callers.

Royal might just be complimenting the Buckeyes, but it sure doesn't come off as if he's very impressed with beleaguered starter Jay Cutler. If the Bears have another down year, they may just have their shot at taking Jones. Based on the four games he's started, he won't be on the board long.
