— What was supposed to be the biggest football bust in the history of the National Football League came crashing down when it was discovered that the Baltimore Ravens running back and defensive end, who are teammates, had been busted for marijuana possession and marijuana paraphernalia.
It was the biggest one-year bust in NFL history and the most costly in NFL NFL history.
The Ravens announced the news during their season-ending press conference on Sunday.
The Ravens are in the middle of a seven-game losing streak.
But if the team had to replace him, it would be hard to imagine how it would look in the coming months.
They have lost nine of their past 10 games, including five of six.
They were in first place in the AFC North with a 5-3 record before the bust.
Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco said he doesn’t understand why the team didn’t take the same action it took after the Baltimore Colts’ Peyton Manning was arrested for marijuana in March.
It didn’t cost them any games.
“It’s just not something we’re comfortable with,” Flacco told reporters.
“We know that they’re going to be able to get their guy.
They can get a guy to come in.
That’s all we’re concerned about, to be honest with you.”
Flacco said the Ravens and Manning have discussed potential deals.
Flacco also said that the team will try to sign Manning to a long-term deal if they’re able to find one.
