Bills “disappointed” to learn of Marcell Dareus arrest

When some NFL players get arrested, the team sends out the traditional and perfunctory “gathering information” statement.

The Bills actually sent one out in the wake of Marcell Dareusarrest on felony synthetic marijuana charges which might describe how they actually feel.

“We are, obviously, disappointed with this latest development involving Marcell Dareus,” General Manager Doug Whaley said, via Mike Rodak of ESPN.com. “We will be in contact with the league regarding the situation and continue to offer support and assistance to Marcell.”

The fact that Dareus was less than two weeks removed from having his 2015 option picked up is reason enough for that feeling.

But that $8.06 million option is only fully guaranteed for injury until the start of the 2015 league year.

That gives them some flexibility, while they let the legal system run its course, and wait to see if the NFL suspends him for violating the substance abuse policy.

The Bills seemed to have some issue with Dareus late last season, and this incident is only going to make them think carefully about their next moves with the former first-rounder.

    “Bitterly disappointed, I mean who the hell tokes synthetic marijuana? Aren’t we paying the guy enough? Christ.”.

    Is synthetic pot banned by the NFL?

    also I ready he only had to post $3,000 bail. Seems kinda low for 2 felonies. However I’m no lawyer.

    Honestly though, what people put in their bodies, other than PED’s, shouldn’t be controlled by someone else. He’s an adult (perhaps by age only) and knows how different things effect his body. Also it’s only possession. It’s not DUI or he’s not beating women, or shooting himself in the leg at a nightclub, or fighting dogs.

    Yes, he should have realized “I’m carrying so I probably shouldn’t speed or have a headlight out or have mirror window tints” but on a scale of egregiousness, this to me is about a 2.

    In Detroit, the fans blamed this stuff on Schwartz.

    Who’s fault is it now?

    $8.6 Million seems pretty high now for the guy getting high.

    Well if they trade up to #1 they would have less draft picks to worry about in the future. Make it a good one!

    Not that big of a deal. This is nothing compared to what some of these guys in the NFL are involved in. He young and just made a mistake. If he gets in trouble again then we should worry about him.
