If it wasnt for him only having one strike left, he would not be on the trading block period.
I didn't call him a criminal or imply he was a criminal. I said he was a headcase. They don't just want to trade him because he's an infraction away from getting banned for a year, they also want to trade him because even after that judgement he didn't clean up his act: he was still out partying every night, and also got pulled over for driving 100 MPH on the way to practice. In practice, they also think he's not coachable: he has the reputation for not paying attention in meetings and dogging it on the practice field. This is all, of course, after he failed three drug tests in two years in college, and another two drug tests in two years in the NFL.
He's still a young guy and might turn it around (and has all the talent in the world, why I'd def do the trade), but those are the reasons I called him a headcase.
