While Patriots cornerback Alfonzo Dennard has far more significant problems in court, he also may have a little trouble at work.
NFL spokesman Greg Aiello advises PFT that the league will review Dennard’s conviction for assaulting a police officer under the personal-conduct policy.
The review will occur even though the incident occurred before Dennard was drafted.
Arguably, the violation wasn’t crystallized until he was convicted. Still, the underlying conduct happened before Dennard was drafted. And he was punished for that transgression, as a practical matter, via the free-fall from round two to round seven of the 2012 draft.
If the league disciplines Dennard, look for him and the union to challenge it.
