That dude has some serious drinking problems. He's barely been sober a year. After my first year, my brain was still smoked. Takes a long time to recover from years of pickling.
Not to be cruel, or crude, but I don't see him making it another 12 months sober. He's jumping back in to it too quickly. My guess, he needs money to buy alcohol, over a longer period of time. That's what got me sober, I went broke, and went to jail. Except I didn't have an NFL contract waiting for me. Manual labor, 60 hours a week welding and grinding. $h!t job. but, part of my recovery.
I feel bad for the guy because people like Jerry Jones don't consider the guys future, or what he might need to stay sober.
But, the WORST thing, on which Jack Del Rio and I agree, is that the NFL won't allow a team to work with a player after they've been suspended! Pete bemoaned this in Josh Gordon's case. NFL teams have a ton of (local) resources that no one else has, and can be instrumental in a player's recovery.
Changes need to be made.
