Good for him... if it works. Sounds like the story is true that the morning before the final game he was drunk/hungover in his apartment and the Browns had to send someone to get him. Let's hope he takes the process seriously and is able to control his substance abuse.

Here's hoping that things work out for him. His transition to the NFL hasn't exactly gone as planned but hey, like us Lion fans say; "there's always next year".

I wish him well and hope he straightens everything out but regardless of his sobriety, he's not long for the NFL.

I'm not a hater, but I am a doubter. Too small and not enough arm.

Those might be the deciding factors. But I reckon it's his inability to read the game and respond properly that will do him in. He basically wasted last year's opportunity to learn.

Maybe he spent the whole year hungover and couldn't learn anything new.

He can hold the ladder for Ryan Leaf so they can break into second story apartments.

Boy, so close to the truth. I hope he gets a clue.
