NFL Lynch expects suspension as Stallworth awaits results of drug & alcohol test

The NFL certainly is finding a way to dominate the sports headlines throughout their offseason with marquee players (AP Photo/Don Heupel)like Terrell Owens and Matt Cassel changing teams while mock draft boards are being shuffled like a deck of cards.Unfortunately, much to the displeasure of Commissioner Roger Goodell, all the news is not football related. Matt Jones, Albert Haynesworth, Marshall Lynch and Donte Stallworth are the latest players to find themselves in trouble with the law.

Buffalo Bills RB Lynch expects to be disciplined after pleading guilty to a misdemeanor gun charge related to his arrest last month in Los Angeles.

Lynch was charged after police found a 9 mm semiautomatic weapon in the trunk of his car. Lynch pled guilty to having a concealed firearm and was sentenced to three years of probation and 80 hours community service.

While Goodell contemplates suspending Lynch, he awaits the outcome to another weapon case regarding one of his players; New York Giants’ receiver Plaxico Burress who shot himself in the leg while trying to bring a loaded handgun into a night club in New York.

In another incident earlier this month, Cleveland Browns receiver Donte Stallworth hit a killed a pedestrian in the early morning hours on a busy causeway near Miami Beach. Stallworth has been cooperating with the police and provided blood for a toxicology test.

Lynch is the only player to have met with Goodell thus far and although he appears to sincerely regret his incident, he expects a suspension from the league.

“It was a real productive meeting, [Goodell] stressed he will not tolerate any more screw-ups from me. I honestly see a suspension coming” said Lynch. “I feel with the incidents I’ve had, I’m young and I’ve grown through those situations. I’ve seen what these situations have put my family through, the team and the organization through and that’s not what I’m about.”

Stallworth also released a statement showing remorse and said he is “grief stricken” concerning being involved in the motor vehicle accident that took the life of a family man returning home from work.

Normally the negative publicity from situations like these find a way to fade away over time but with the league just settling down from the Burress incident and Adam ‘Pacman’ Jones’ latest ordeal in an Atlanta nightclub, Goodell may find himself out on another intense damage-control campaign soon.

Pacman back in NFL after ‘Brawl in the Stall’

It seems like Dallas Cowboys owner, Jerry Jones, has created a part-time gig for himself called, “NFL spokesman.” The charismatic, scene-stealing owner of the Dallas Cowboys told the media, his troubled player Adam ‘Pacman’ Jones is returning to the field in a few weeks.

We should expect the NFL to verify this but why have they refrained from doing so and allowed JJ to run loose with it?

The league responded to Jones’ comments with an email from a real NFL spokesman Greg Aiello that read, “When there is a final determination, we will announce it.”

Pacman, who has an album full of mugshots and laundry list of court appearances, has completed the inpatient portion of his NFL-ordered alcohol treatment in the Boston area and had been awaiting word from Roger Goodell and the league about his immediate future.

JJ stated to the press that Pacman was “Being reinstated by Roger Goodell and will begin limited practice before returning to the field when the Cowboys play in a game against the Pittsburgh Steelers on December 7.”

JJ said, “He’s a long way, a long way from having clear sailing.” and that he would not have bodyguards for ‘Pacman’ in the future.

Is this insinuating the bodyguards were at fault for the “brawl in the stall?”

Pacman’s attorney, Worrick Robinson added this, “It all starts with him (Pacman) and his decision-making. He’s comfortable making decisions for himself.”

And there lies the problem.
