Chris Carter got 3 chances. I'm just saying.

I really hate to say this, but you're probably right. He is probably another Fred Davis just waiting to happen.

 

WRs can  be such flakes.  The best predictor of future behavior is past behavior.  9 run ins with the law is more than most people have--their entire families have--extended families have---in a lifetime.

I value character, and I think Mr. Richardson does too.  This is an NFL team, a great opportunity, not a rehab center.  The talent has to exceed the distraction.  Britt is no Cris Carter, by the way.  I don't want to root for people who would make my family nervous walking down my street.

Drafting Cam Newton suggests otherwise.

What is that supposed to mean?

Is everyone a career criminal to you? Have you never been in any trouble before in your life?

Anyways, if Nicks went to college in Missouri everyone here would be laughing at the kind of money he wants. Well, supposedly wants, considering he's been missing for over a year.

I think you can probably change that to "wanted".  No team is giving him anywhere close to what he was wanting.  I don't think I've seen a single poster state that they want to give Nicks a long-term, big money deal.

The vast majority of people, including myself, have never been arrested.

If you're gonna argue that there weren't valid character concerns surrounding Newton, who left Florida after being arrested and had numerous questions surrounding him at Auburn, when he entered the draft then you are a complete dumb ass.

I never said he was a "career criminal" or was a bad person. But he did have red flags surrounding him, and with good reason.

I honestly believe we have the locker room and organizational structure to allow "at risk" or "off season knuckle" a chance to cleanup their act and reach their potential. We have a lot of good character on out team and great coaches. I'm never too worried about what people have done I their past. They just need structure and support that was lacking early and we can provide that. If he's cheap he certainly has the talent to succeed. I'm not one to completely write off people for off season reasons.

Just because someone hasn't been arrested doesn't mean they haven't broken the law, or done something foolish at some point in their lives. You're quite the hypocrite regardless.

There were all sorts of ignorant things said about him before the draft. The legitimate concern was about him translating to the NFL after only one year in the SEC. It was pretty much bigots, and fans of other college teams who got their asses kicked by Auburn that kept bringing up what happened at Florida every chance they got.

I took issue with you mentioning us taking a chance on Cam Newton in the draft as if that's even remotely comparable to this situation in discussing potentially signing a guy who's been arrested numerous times already while playing in the NFL. That's blatantly asinine, and you know it.
