Some players can afford to be arrested and not worry about losing their jobs. Chargers safety Kevin Ellison is not one of those players.
Kevin Acee of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports that Ellison was told to stay away from the team’s minicamp this week, which puts his job in further danger. Even before Ellison was pulled over for speeding and found with 100 pills of Vicodin, he was hardly a lock to make the team.
Now it appears like Ellison isn’t even a lock to be on the roster by training camp. A sixth-round pick, Ellison started started nine games as a rookie, but the team drafted Darrell Stuckey in the fourth round last month to add speed to the position.
The unfortunate timing of Ellison’s arrest could have him speeding right off the roster.
