On Thursday’s show we talked to Ricky’s agent Leigh Steinberg and he said he “expected” his client to be reinstated by the NFL next week. It got me to thinking about Ricky’s case. When he bailed on his team just before training camp a few years back, we did a show the next day and he got killed by the fans…nobody liked a quitter.
I’m curious about your opinion of Ricky now. This guy didn’t get a DUI, beat his spouse, shoot anyone. What category do you put his infractions, repeated positive tests for pot? Do you think the NFL should let Ricky back in and would you want him on your team? Those are two separate issues. You may think he has the right to earn a living playing football again, but you may still think of him as a quitter.
