Even falling one place in the first round could cost you millions !!!
Further evidence that being stupid is not illegal comes from Dan Pompei of the National Football Press who is reporting that teams are investigating two players in the draft that may have been involved in the trashing of a hotel room at the Combine in Indianapolis last month. The players were not named but one is thought to be a possible first-round pick. Even dropping one spot in the draft could be costly. For example …..
In last year’s draft, linebacker Luke Kuechly, the No. 9 pick, received $12.58 million over four years from the Carolina Panthers. One pick later, cornerback Stephon Gilmore got $12.1 million from the Buffalo Bills. At No. 12, defensive tackle Fletcher Cox received $2.3 million less than Kuechly, $10.24 million, from Philadelphia.
Boys will be boys but with so much riding on the line, you would think that someone in the mix to make tens of millions of dollars could behave for a couple of months.
The Honey Badger reportedly stopped counting at 10 failed drug tests
According to a report in USA Today, Tyrann “The Honey Badger” Mathieu failed at least 10 drug tests while playing safety at LSU. In fact, he stopped counting at ten and was quite open to his problem at the combine.
The Honey Badger speaks at the combine
LSU released a statement that did not deny the number of Mathieu’s alleged failed drug tests but rather spun the focus to the leak of what should have been confidential medical information.
“It is irresponsible and shows a lack of integrity for anyone to disclose medical information regardless of how it was gathered. I would expect that conversations regarding my drug testing history during the course of my medical treatment would be private. LSU has a strong drug testing program and LSU went to great lengths to help me in my treatment and recovery. I understand that many people enjoy reading about the negative side of sports, but to publish those second-hand comments without being given a chance to address that comment prior to the publication of the article is irresponsible.”
It will be interesting to where in the draft and to who Tyrann Mathieu falls in the draft. One thing is for certain, Bet-on-the NFL will be on it like white on rice. Bookmark BOTN and make it part of your daily routine.
