One has to wonder just what, if anything is going on in the heads of some of these soon to be pro athletes who are about to enter the NFL draft. SI.com reports that Boston College defensive standout B.J.Raji has failed a drug tesr at the NFL combine. This act of gross impiety not only effects the draft standings from selections ranging anywhere from # 8 – 25 depending where you have him, but is likely to cost the trench behemoth hundreds of thousands if not millions of dollars.
This is not Raji’s first offense either. In 2008 he tested positive for marijuana and in 2007 he missed the entire season for academic reasons.
Smarten up young man !!! This is dumb ! This is D-U-M-B !!! Maybe not Plaxico Burress dumb. Maybe not Pacman Jones, or even Britney Spears dumb. But this is “ you are now on the radar screen and will be closely monitored from this point on, and if you set a toe out of line your bum is gonna look like freshly mowed grass“….DUMB ! This is “despite being a Giant in physical stature, you are now going to be assumed to be a dwarf in mental acuity”…….Dumb !
And furthermore, you are not alone ! The Draft Bible reports that LB Clay Matthews and Brian Cushing have tested positive for steroids, and CB Vonte Davis, WR Percy Harvin and K Jose Martinez have all tested positive for marijuana.
Just how this will effect the first round and what effect, if any it will have on the Vikings at # 22 remains to be seen. But this much is for sure, as long as there is an opportunity for wealth beyond your wildest dreams, there will be people D-U-M-B enough to spoil it for themselves.
I have spoken !
