The Cleveland Browns have decided to let Davone Bess try to find another home by giving him his walking papers.
Pyro’s take: Davone had struggled to learn that compounding being a shitty player and breaking the law don’t mix. This joker even had a guaranteed contract if he could just stay off the non-football injury list. Instead, he traded the guarantee of $3.067 million dollars for a photo of him with a blunt cigarette while wearing a Rasta flag around his neck, and assaulting police officers in a Ft. Lauderdale airport.
According to police Bess was dancing and singing as his pants repeatedly fell down. A police officer approached Davone and asked if he was okay. Without a response Bess grabbed a cup of coffee, squeezed, which caused it to splash on the shirt of the police officer. Davone Bess has stated it was just a big misunderstanding, because he was enjoying listening to his music, and was mishandled by the police.
He went on after the arrest to post nude photos of himself, and then admit into a Florida facility shortly after his arrest. This was not the first time he has been in a medical facility.
The NFC West could have the top 4 defenses in the NFL next season. Considering the fact that those four teams play each other twice every year I’d think hard before drafting offensive studs on the 49ers, Seahawks, Cardinals & Rams.
That includes: Beast Mode, Harvin, Crabtree, Kaepernick, Stacy, Fitzgerald, Ellington, etc.
Terrell Owens sees NFL players making the police blotter and shakes his head.
Somehow, T.O. was the bad boy?
“You look at some of the stuff guys are doing now, domestic violence, players killing players, just everything,” Owens said in an interview with The Associated Press on Thursday. “You have so many guys with off-the-field problems, drug issues, alcohol problems and they’re still given second chances and third chances. They’re putting them in rehab and keeping them on the team. I never had those issues. It’s disappointing.”
Owens played his last NFL game on Dec. 19, 2010. But the five-time All-Pro wide receiver still thinks he can play at age 40.
“They brought up my age when I was 35, 36 and I’m still in just as good shape as I was then,” Owens said. “Jerry (Rice) played until he was 42. At 39, I ran a 4.43 40-yard dash. You look at the number of dropped balls and the way guys are playing now and you can’t honestly say I can’t do better.”
Pyro’s take: Owens has not always made the best choices, but he makes a lot of sense to me. It does seem like Owens has been blackballed from the league, and honestly I would love to see someone give him one more chance.
Terrell should call Jim Harbaugh and see if he can’t convince him to sign Owens back where he started. At his current age he is not going to present the same drama he did when he was in his prime, and why wouldn’t a team want a player with something to prove who will play for the veteran minimum, just to get another shot.
