Defensive end Cornelius Washington started a summer that will see him vying for more playing time with the Bears by getting arrested.
The Glascock County Sherrif’s Office said , via WDRW-TV, reports that Washington was arrested on Friday night for speeding and driving with a suspended license on Georgia Highway 80. Per the report, he was taken to the McDuffie County jail and there are no further details about Washington’s status.
Washington played two games for the Bears last season after they made him a sixth-round pick out of the University of Georgia. He was suspended for two games during his college career after being arrested for speeding and DUI.
UPDATE 3:59 p.m.: An earlier version of this post listed Israel Idonije among the backup defensive linemen. Idonije was cut last week, apologies for the error.
