Marcell Dareus on arrest: It’s not what you guys think

Bills defensive tackle Marcell Dareus was arrested in Alabama earlier this month and faces felony charges for possession of synthetic marijuana, which leaves him at risk of both jail time and a suspension from the league.

Dareus talked about the arrest on Wednesday, saying that he’s “not a trouble guy” and that he’s confident the Bills believe in him. Dareus also said that reports about the arrest were incorrect.

“It’s not what you guys think,” Dareus said, via Mike Rodak of ESPN.com. “The media put things out there the wrong way. You [reporters] put things out there. I’m not really going to say [what is inaccurate]. I didn’t really pay that much attention to it. I got a lot of text messages and things.”

Dareus’ arrest came just after the Bills decided to exercise the 2015 option on his contract, a decision that came after the team said talks about a longer extension were on the radar this offseason. The team expressed disappointment after the arrest and coach Doug Marrone didn’t talk about Dareus’ contract on Wednesday, though he did share that he told Dareus that “the more that he can be here, the better job that he seems to do.”

The 2015 option is guaranteed for injury only, so the Bills have the ability to wait and see how things play out in the legal system — no court date has been set yet — and on the field with Dareus before deciding if anything’s changed with their radar.

    If nothing else, legalization of weed would allieviate the need for people to make and sell synthetic (dangerous) weed.

    That is why you need to buy it from people you trust. Don’t expect the kind grind from some stranger. I would have guessed Darius would be more tied into the market and correct players.

    God made the real thing,,,,,,,man made Synthetic,,,,,,,,,stick with the plan the Lord made for you.

    What the media failed to report was the he was also caught with Synthetic Twinkies and Synthetic Big-Macs to go along with the Synthetic M-J.

    Fat man + weed = lazy, obese, unemployed.

    I really don’t like guys giving my favorite teams a black eye, on or off the field.

    But, this is one guy I am willing to give the benefit of the doubt to. He’s a good kid, who has been through A LOT lately.

    He finally tasted his potential this season and made the pro-bowl…he will turn it around. It’d be a huge mistake to cut him. The guy is still very young, and he is extremely talented. Worthy of #3 overall…if he keeps his head screwed on straight.

    Denial…the usual for this team. No better than anyone else.

    I guess we presume people guilty until provin innocent these days?? I guess I was raised wrong? I always believed unless I know all the facts and hear both sides if the story? Then I try to make a decision based on facts beyond a reasonable doubt? No? I know I’m in the minority when it comes to ones right to defend themselves and BELIVE in Due Process???
