Ellison told to stay away from team, could lose roster spot

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.

  1. Wait, you forgot to mention your fabricated assertion that he got the pills from the team, lol

  2. “The unfortunate timing of Ellison’s arrest could have him speeding right off the roster.”
    ZING!

  3. Should have kept them in a bottle with his name on it….. Would have been the smart choice if your going to purchase vic or perc or norco, etc.

  4. @David.walden05: Usually Florio’s are better then Rosenthal’s.
    That’s like saying Clamidia is better then Herpes.

  5. Eventually people are going to realize AJ Smith undervalues the importance of character in his players. That is one reason why the roster is so thin on leaders.

  6. Montana, you’re dead wrong about that. Why do you think Antonio Cromartie is no longer a Charger?

    So wait, AJ Smith tells Ellison to stay away from the team and that means that he doesn’t value character?? Wouldn’t he just be letting Ellison practice and play with the team if he undervalued it?

  8. Heard Ellison was driving and Sean Peyton was in the backseat no script needed rollin Saints style Booyah

  9. Montana at Hart,
    You picked the absolutely worst example for the character label. SD usually likes to draft college team cocaptains, like Jacob Hester, Darell Stuckey, Drew Brees, Eric Weddle, Philip Rivers to just name a few. Kevin Ellison was actually the leader of the vaunted USC defense of 08, not Taylor Mays or Rey Maluaga.
    AJ has no tolerance for character (drug) issues. Just ask Shane Olivea and Terrence Kiel.
