Seahawks cut Jarriel King

Many football fans learned that Jarriel King was a member of the Seahawks when reports of his arrest surfaced on Monday.

He’s no longer a member of the team. Danny O’Neil of the Seattle Times brings word that Seattle has released the offensive lineman.

King was arrested in South Carolina last month and charged with having forcible sex with a highly-intoxicated woman. Another man was also charged by the police with disrobing and having sex with the woman after she told them to stop.

King played one game with the team in 2011 after he was claimed off waivers from the Giants. The Giants signed him as an undrafted free agent after he completed his collegiate career at the University of South Carolina.

    Bet Rick Spielman has this guy on his radar.

    I doubt he’s smiling right now like he is in his picture.

    On the brightside, he can always join the Steelers and block for Big Ben

    Sources: 49ers Bring King in for interview. P.Cox looking for a wing-man.

    A southern gentlemen indeed…

    If he’s acquited, he can sign with the Niners, just like Cox.

    The NFL has become a breeding ground for sexual misconduct

    Big Ben needed someone to “block” for him in the past, could have avoided a lot of trouble.

    “King was arrested in South Carolina last month and charged with having forcible sex with a highly-intoxicated woman”

    In my day we just called that Rape

  11. bearsrulepackdrool says: Mar 19, 2012 2:23 PM

    I’d like to know…how many professional athletes have been accused of rape in the last 5 years…versus how many of them have actually been convicted.

    I don’t think this is an athlete problem. I think, with the epidemic of “Basketball Wives,” there are too many women looking for a payday with these athletes.

    It looks like athletes need to have consent forms on their nightstands. To prove that it wasn’t rape. Not to say that they aren’t idiots for putting themselves in the situation, I’m just saying it goes both ways. Why would you go out with two men that clearly are bigger than you and get drunk and high and go back to their apartment?!

    Again!?

    Even without him getting all rapey he was a long shot to make the team this fall.

    Under normal circumstances yes, but he simply isn’t good enough. A dangerous duo indeed though; I like your thinking.

  16. spellingcops says: Mar 19, 2012 2:48 PM

    If he were good, do you think they’d still cut him?

  17. modellforprez says: Mar 19, 2012 2:53 PM

    Way to circumvent the bullchit, Coach Carroll. Axe that no-name, no-good, practice squad fodder worm!

    Cut me, and I bleed blue & green. However, I had NEVER heard of this BUM before now. I mean, when we re-signed obscure Paul McQuistan at guard, I immediately knew, “versatile offensive lineman – can play both guard & tackle relatively well, potential to start, or fantastic O-line depth, etc..”

    I saw this clown’s name & thought: “Who? That maggot isn’t a Seahawk!” Thank you, though, for establishing yourself as a man not worthy of remembering one bloody thing about… “And, it turns out I was right about you anyway.. you’re NOT a Seahawk!”

    lmfao I guess he thought 50 no’s and 1 yes was still a yes.

  21. aaroncurryisbust says: Mar 19, 2012 3:13 PM

    And nothing of value was lost.

  22. jolink653 says: Mar 19, 2012 3:14 PM

    yea steelers could use him to help block the door for big ben so this time no one walks in on him

    Interesting comment you had. Are you overlooking the fact that the Marshawn Lynch was charged with sexual assault and hit and run, yet is still on the Seahawks? Or that LeRoy Hill was caught smoking weed numerous times but was brought back by the Seahawks? Or how about the Seahawks drafting Jerramy Stevans after he was charged with assault after beating a kid with a baseball bat? Or Raheem Brock who was on the Seahawks after speeding and driving under the influence. Shall I go on?

    I guess its ok when your team does it.
    Thumbs up if you know I am right. Thumbs down, your a bias fan. All teams have good humans and bad.

    No but the Packers do. Afterall, they let Erik Walden start after his brush with the law last year.

  25. mianfr says: Mar 19, 2012 3:27 PM

    My initial reaction was to say “Yeah, cut the guy who wouldn’t make the team anyway. Only good players get free passes.”

    But then I started wondering whether it’s just more likely to be true for claims against marginal players to be accurate. It goes back to the whole “If you got raped in a club, and Tom Brady was also in that club, then Tom Brady raped you” mentality in terms of money-grubbing a bad situation.

    But there’s only so much to take from the Jarriel Kings of the world.

  26. zn0rseman says: Mar 19, 2012 4:39 PM

    Seattle drafted Jerramy Stevens.

    I’m shocked they’d cut anyone for character issues/arrests after giving that scum bag a 9 year NFL career…

  27. dmobey says: Mar 19, 2012 9:52 PM

    Now he’s free to sign with Pittsburgh where he’ll fit right in.
