My parents live in TX. Was told the unlawful possession of a weapon is tied to the alcohol. The minute there is alcohol involved, any weapon at the scene is considered "unlawful". This is nothing like being drunk and waving a weapon around and making threats, etc., so essentially, that portion is no big deal at all, as it sounds like it was just in his possession. However, regarding your speculation that he "was probably drinking and hunting", would be a real problem for me. As an actual sportsman who does hunt, IMO any alcohol or drugs have no business being consumed while hunting. If that really happened, I'd throw the book at him. That irresponsible combination is frickin' ridiculous and on par with poaching as far as I'm concerned.

so after hunting you dont have a few drinks? I do that with fishing and hunting that is normal. I am not saying the guy was pounding shots while shooting something. I am just saying he took his atv out in to the woods and may have done some hunting or trail riding and had drinks down the road whether it was during or after, my assumption is the later. My point was it isnt a typical situation where a player goes out clubbing until 4-5 in the morning as the main goal was to party and have the gun in the car. you are right about the Unlawful part which is always tacked on but it is only a misdemeanor. Its not an excuse as he definitely has to learn from it, but it could have been worse.

There seems to be some speculation that any suspension may not occur until the 2021 season.

Similar to Chris Herndon who was suspended last season for 4 games after an arrest made in June of 2018.

Dareus was arrested in May 2014 and served the suspension in  week 1 of 2015.

Yes there is a good chance of that happening but honestly if it has to happen I would rather it happen this year then next. if you have to be suspended the Dolphins and Jets as these are winnable games with or without Ed. It would not be that big of a deal compared to next year which is unknown. Plus having a deep dline helps out this year as next year might be thinner.

It would be fun to watch him wreck the reworked Jets and Phins OL though.

Out in the field? No. Never.

Anyway, as you said, the weapons charge is not significant. I highly doubt it is even addressed by the NFL. Obviously the other charge is going to be somewhat of a problem. Like others, I'm expecting 2 weeks.
