Most NFL players are inclined either to support Texans linebacker Brian Cushing, or to say nothing. One of the exceptions is Packers receiver James Jones.
In a Thursday segment with WSSP 1250 in Milwaukee, Jones made his views on the situation crystal clear.
“Do I have to comment on that?” Jones initially said, laughing. Later, he spoke his mind.
“If it was me, I probably would have just stripped [the AP defensive rookie of the year award],” Jones said. “Obviously, you’re basically saying it’s OK to cheat and still get by. I mean, I don’t think it was the right thing to do. I think [if] you cheated and used steroids you shouldn’t be able to hold that award.”
Surely, other players feel that way. We hope more of them follow Jones’ lead.
