Absolutely not. But they're the only team this season that has any players getting suspended for it. And it just so happens to be two of our best players on an otherwise terrible offensive team. One of those players is also the highest draft pick Mike Shanahan has ever made. This same guy has a $80,000 gorilla necklace, is oft-injured, and draws personal foul penalties like they're blunts.

Sad state of affairs.

You know, I could care less if a dude wants to light up J from time to time.
BUT, when you have had this many warnings and you continue for the need of the weed and put this much to risk? You may well be pulling a Ricky (as someone else pointed out).

They are the only ones dealing with possible suspensions from smoking weed.

Unlike the Green Bay Packers who just saw one of their top defensive linemen of recent years get sentenced to six years in prison for mass distribution of an illegal substance

Rob Gronkowski is a more athletic Witten

His point was the Skins aren't the only team dealing with these sort of things.

When he was arrested in the summer of 2008 he was a pretty key figure in their defense.

But my point was more so that even the "best" organizations have players with issues much more major than getting caught smoking weed

Re: Report: Fred Davis, Trent Williams suspended four games

Isn't Fred Davis a free agent this year?

Imagine how hard his agent is going to have to work to get him a big time deal with a lot of guaranteed money given that he will now be "on the list" for enhanced testing from the league and given that from here on out the penalties for getting caught escalate from the 4-game suspension level.

Granted, he is not the only dope-smoker in the NFL but he is now one of the guys under the microscope and he finds himself there just as it is time to try to get some guaranteed scratch from some NFL GM. Let's just say that kind of behavior is not likely to get him an invitation to join MENSA.

Oh for sure. It's just that everything else is going so poorly, this just feels like piling on.

He was under the microscope after the first failed test. Three fails just puts you at the dumbass level. One more strike they both sit for an entire season.

I smell a serious hometown discount coming his way

Re: Report: Fred Davis, Trent Williams suspended four games

Is this a serious roadblock in re signing FD? I believe it maybe...but damn he has been featured so much
