MIA RB Mark Walton suspended 4 games for offseason arrests (weed plus DUI)

Recommended Posts

 

3 implications:

1.   Weed arrest bypasses the 4-strike rule to get a suspension (4 positive tests - except when you get arrested, which Walton did this past summer).

2.  Normally it's 2 games - but Walton was arrested while driving recklessly and in possession.  That automatically brings it up to 4 games.

3.  MIA knew of the arrests when they claimed him - so this isn't likely changing his future with the team.    It does mean there are 4 games in which MIA doesn't have a guy who is even average-skill level (Ballage has tools and ZERO football skills).

Given what MIA is trying to do, though, it wouldn't surprise me if the MIA FO asked the NFL to expedite matters and apply the penalty this year lol.

I mean, who wouldn't want more of this:

I'm amazed it took the league this long to act.  Three arrests were enough to even get Mike Brown to cut him.  

 

It has no effect on Miami's present plan for this season.

I doubt it, but that'd be cool to see I guess.

He's been working hard, trying to understand this new passing playbook. 

Step 1: catch the ball when it's thrown to you

aiiieee, his knee was bone on bone even in college.

RB Patrick Laird is an UDFA rookie outta Cal that had some Fin fans hyped in preseason.

Yeah, the UDFA route is the way to go right now for sure. Either that or put Jakeem Grant there if he's still healthy. Haven't kept up with the Dolphins too much, so I honestly don't know what his status is right now.

Actually drafted another rookie RB Myles Gaskin from Washington but he's a wee lad at 5'9" and neither him nor fellow rook Laird have played in a real game yet. Because Drake, Walton and Ballage were there. 

But now only Ballage is there...come on rooks, step up and be counted.

Can they sign someone that was drafted by an XFL team? If so then I'd like to see Jhurell Pressley get some burn. I've always had a soft spot for Matt Jones, and he played college ball in Florida.

Well, he should get creativity points for trying anyways.
