What a waste. So much for being a "model citizen" or whatever he claimed he was going to be after his suspension and meeting with Goodell. The guy is good enough, but you have to be smart off the field, too.

Just think if more teams w/ problematic players dropped them after given fair warning. Then maybe some of these knuckle heads will get the picture once there out of a job in the NFL & flipping burgers instead. If another team signs Tank then there is no lesson learned for him or other guys that have had troubles..(henry/pacman) to name a couple..Because then they will think they no biggie I can just go get a job with another team.

I think it would be interesting to get a team like Oakland or whatever try and pick up all players who are cut because of behavioral issues, potentially a team with Henry, Odell, Tank, Vick, Pacman, McMichael to name a few..wouldn't be so bad. Now no I'm not going as far as saying that anything will or should do this, nor that all of those players will be cut, I'm just saying it would be interesting to see how they would compete.

It's too bad, but you reap what you sow. He is ultra talented, but not going to do anyone any good, when suspensions are apparently his new hobby.

Oddly enough, they do need help along the Dline. :-b

I imagine his suspension will now stretch to the entire season with no chance of cutting it down. Of course, nobody will sign him this year and come dirt cheap for some team next year.

Yeah, even though DaBears suck I do have to commend them on quickly ridding themselves of a distraction.

Can these guys suit up in the CFL?
The thought of undisciplined players taking a year off makes me think of them getting totally out of shape and never playing again. Then the trouble will really start.
