We’ll take a break from players getting released to tell you about a player trying his best to get released.
Colts defensive tackle Fili Moala was arrested for driving while intoxicated on Friday morning, according to Mike Chappell of the Indianapolis Star. He admitted to having “five or six drinks” and his eyes were described as “glassy and bloodshot” in the police report. Despite that, he blew a .10 — just more than the legal limit of .08.
A second round pick in 2009, Moala has started to come on strong this offseason after a very quiet rookie year. Moala should remain on the roster because NFL teams using a sliding scale when it comes to character or morals.
If Moala was a star, a release wouldn’t be considered. If he was a scrub, he’d get dumped. Since Moala is in-between, he’ll get a stern lecture.
