The last we heard of former first-round Vikings pick Erasmus James, the defensive end was indefinitely suspended by the NFL.
After an arrest Thursday morning, consider James’ suspension, um, more indefinite.
James was arrested for punching a “friend” in the face. Authorities say it happened after James tried to order a drink after closing time at a bar near the University of Wisconsin, where James went to college.
If James was a senior without a budding NFL career, this could make for a funny story. When you are That Guy still reliving college glory while your NFL career is on life support, it’s a little sad.
James was last with the Redskins, who cut him after acquiring him via trade from the Vikings. This incident may finish James’ chances of getting back in the league if that indefinite suspension ever finds an end.
