Vikings RB Thomas gets 3-game suspension

 

https://www.espn.com/nfl/story/_/id/27203706/vikings-rb-thomas-gets-3-game-suspension

 

Minnesota Vikings running back Roc Thomas will be suspended for the first three games of the 2019 season without pay for violating the NFL's policy and program on substances of abuse, the league announced Tuesday.

 

Thomas, 23, was arrested on Jan. 16 and charged with felony drug possession after Dakota County police officers found 143.28 grams of marijuana (or just over five ounces) in his Mendota Heights, Minnesota, apartment. Police also confiscated just over $15,800 in cash, a .45-caliber handgun and two handgun magazines.

 

When will these guys smarten up??

Sounds like some prime Asset Forfeiture. That money almost certainly commited a crime.

Exactly.  The idiot is dealing.  HE'S ALREADY ***** RICH!!!!

 

There was a Miami RB years ago who went to prison (I believe) for dealing drugs.  It boggles my mind.

5 ounces is really not that much at all. Personal consumption is completely realistic here, especially if he entertains. Thats's a completely legal amount in a lot of places that have legalized. $1000 street value/$500 from a dispensary.

How many people is he entertaining?

 

When I was a smoker, an ounce would last a LONG time. Like a few weeks.

...and yet ANOTHER......SMH..............

Cards release Harrison after arrest warrant issued

ESPN 12:01PM

 

The Arizona Cardinals have released offensive tackle Desmond Harrison after a warrant was issued for his arrest on felony charges of assault in North Carolina.

A Greensboro police spokesman told multiple news outlets that an incident report was filed Tuesday. The charges would be assault on a person by strangulation and assault on a female by a male.

Further details of the case were not immediately available. The Cardinals did not address why they released Harrison.

Harrison joined the Cardinals in June after the team claimed him off waivers from the Cleveland Browns. After joining the Browns as an undrafted free agent in 2018, Harrison started eight games at left tackle.

In a corresponding roster move, the Cardinals agreed to terms with defensive back Jalen Thompson, a supplemental draft pick, to a four-year contract.

In that vein, a 3 game suspension could be the least of his worries. With the cash, and QTY he might be doing time. 

 

5 Z’s is one hell of a personal stash unless he’s just lighting a pile of it on fire and inhaling

He's a professional athlete, I'm sure he has more than his fair share of hanger-ons. Also, if I was a pro athlete I'd buy in bulk too. I wouldn't exactly want to be popping down to a dealer on a  weekly basis.

Thankfully they confiscated the two hand gun magazines, he could've done serious damage with those.😀

I think Brady was behind this. He should serve the suspension.

The handgun is the biggest concern if it isn't registered. I'd think a good lawyer could easily come up with some reasoning as to why a 23 year old kid on an NFL contract has 15 G's, and 5 ounces... which isn't that crazy of an amount.

 

The gun is really where it becomes hard to make this all look like it's recreational if it's illegal.
