I'm sure he's going to be a productive player in the NFL, but the extra baggage is just too much. Dez Bryant is another headcase who produces, but I wouldn't want him anywhere near my football team.
DO NOT WANT.
Hes nothing like Dez at all. His issues with the law was being a college student who liked to drink. Hes a good/well liked teammate who is not a diva(unlike Dez) who made a couple bad alcohol induced decisions. I mean do you not want Aldon on this team anymore because he made a bad alcohol related decision?
Though I do agree with you about the injury concerns. Just by watching those highlights(some of them include his freshman/soph yr) you can tell he has slowed down. Love his size and RZ presense but I would rather us get one of the Arkansas WR's. Joe Adams, who reminds me of Mike Wallace or Jarius Wright. Both are electric and would add that speedy big play WR that we need(Ted Ginn is not that).
Aldon's situation is different than Floyd's. Aldon had no prior history of alcohol related arrests, and you would have every reason to believe that his arrest was a one time thing. Just a young kid who made a bad choice. He will learn from this and not make the same mistake again.
Floyd on the other hand is a repeat offender. THREE alcohol related arrests in 4 years. Do you think the excessive partying is going to stop once he gets a multi-million dollar pay check? I doubt it.
The comparison I made to Dez Bryant has nothing to do with their personality traits, but rather their propensity for getting into trouble.
