Nfl Players And Their Legal Battles – Not The Brightest Crayons In The Box-aptana studio

Sports-and-Recreation NFL players routinely turn up in the arrest wires for committing stupid crimes. Although these guys earnings run into millions of dollars, they can’t live like normal, responsible citizens. For some its cost them public humiliation and maybe a short suspension. By their self-serving behavior, others have had their entire careers ruined. Here is a list of the top five NFL players who have exibited the stupidest behavior over the past two years. While the likes of Terrell Owens and Chad Johnson have certainly proven themselves to be incapable of normal human behavior, this list will only include those with actual legal problems off the field. 5. Tank Johnson Tank Johnson got arrested a number of times, which led to his being waived by the Chicago Bears and being suspended for half a season. A weapons charge, handgun possession, got him his first arrest at a nightclub. The first time he was arrested, it was for handgun possession at a nightclub. Tank was then charged for aggravated assault after a dustup with a police office outside of a you guessed it nightclub. Tank was then arrested for possession of unlicensed firearms, including assault rifles. Being nicknamed Tank does not mean you must arm yourself as if you really were one! Johnson was released by the Bears when he received a speeding ticket while being mildly impaired. After his suspension was over, the Dallas Cowboys signed him to a contract. 4. The second player on this list from the Chicago Bears, Cedric Benson, was taken into custody two seperate times in 2008, which was the most influential reason for his unconditinal release from the team. He was a first round draft pick in the NFL as a running back and is now unemployed. The first arrest was for boating while intoxicated, so how does he clean up his act? He goes and drives his car intoxicated, getting a DUI. His Bears teammate committed more crimes, but he has the talent to find a new job. Unfortunately in the NFL, if you have the skills, you can pay the bills, despite what your charges list looks like. 3. Chris Henry Chris Henry made his home in the arrest books. Previously a wide receiver for the Cincinnati Bengals, he had five run-ins with the law in less than three years, including DUI, drug possession, and gun related charges. After yet more tangles with the legal system, he was first suspended, missed half of the 2007 season, and then finally cut from the Bengals. Chris Henry always finds the crime and has a knack for getting caught. He has been taken down by more cops than opposing players during the previous 3 years. 2. Pacman Jones – He would top the list but he is still under contract with an NFL team so he will be allowed to play again. Pacman got into one problem after another, one of which was a deadly shooting in a nightclub. He then tried to show NFL commissioner Roger Goodell that he was reformed by showing up late to their meeting, having lost track of time at the local strip club, the very type of establishment he was not supposed to visit. NFL history has proven that, no matter how troubled an athlete is, if he has enough talent, he will continue to get more chances throughout the league. And guess who decided to give Pacman (now just Adam) another shot? The Dallas Cowboys, in part from the counsel of their troubled former superstar, Michael Irvin. 1. Michael Vick – Michael Vick is likely to be considered the least intelligent player of late in the NFL. This is because although he was involved in less legal incidents than others on this list, he is the only one serving a multiple year jail sentence. In addition, since he was Michael Vick, franchise player and superstar, he stood to lose the most, and he lost all of it. There was a huge public outcry following his dog fighting arrest, which permanently marred his image. Not only did he say goodbye to his NFL career, he also lost tens of millions of dollars and a few years of freedom. Michael Vick: heartiest congratulations on making it to number one. There are your five dumbest NFL players of the last several seasons. Amid fierce competition from hundreds of other potential candidates, these men have proven themselves to be unrivaled in this very difficult field. About the Author: 相关的主题文章:
