I did read it. At the end, we know the outcome. He will be given another chance. Gladney will get probation or all the charges will get dismissed because the victim doesn’t want to proceed with it. It happens every year. People are always shocked when the news come out but will later forgive. Xavien Howard, DeAndre Baker, Kareem Hunt and Quinton Dunbar just to name a few. The only one that I know of who could lose his football career is Chad Wheeler.
True, but I would add that at some point it has to become about the question of a legit franchise QB. If Fields and Darnold become one, then good. In my mind Darnold doesn't have to be definitively better than or equal to Fields. But, if Fields becomes a legit superstar QB and Darnold basically flops, then any criticism that Rhule gets, well, he's just going to have to suck it up and take. Sure, we needed a DB, but we needed a franchise QB more, and legitimate franchise QBs don't fall off of trees. Mind you, that it may take years to fully answer these questions. But, if Fields comes out lighting the world on fire and Darnold is the Darnold of the last three years, Rhule will not only be talked about on the Huddle, he'll be discussed across the NFL for years.
