The legal system will be first and foremost and THEN the NFL will react to whatever, if any consequences, that emerge. But look at Lynch's DUI. That thing dragged out over a year and in the end, it just silently went away. This is a case where there was no bodily injury (insurance claim IF it was Culliver's fault) and no physical assault on a cornering citizen (damaged car to get by this citizen's vehicle - another insurance claim).
In the end, I doubt much will come from this other than a higher insurance premium, embarrassment and a public apology and perhaps. some community service. From the sounds of it, this was a case of Culliver panicking.
Remember, everyone is looking for a handout these days and we should all wait for ALL the facts to come out before we jump to conclusions (learn from the Brooks case where his own teammate tried to extort $ from him b/c he knew he wasn't going to make the team).
My guess is that he and Brock will STILL be our starting CB's and he'll play very well for us and Baalke is going to have a field day signing him LT to a very reasonable contract with plenty of clauses in it WHILE also drafting one blue chip CB in development and another slot/nickle CB and a few UDFA's and perhaps a older veteran for added competition around or shortly after the draft.
In short, nothing has changed.
