Bills tackle Cyrus Kouandjio wasn’t at practice Thursday. And that’s the least interesting thing about his day.

According to Vic Carucci of the Buffalo News, Kouandjio was involved in a bizarre incident in which police found him partially clothed and asking police to shoot him.

According to the report, an Erie County Sheriff’s deputy found Kouandjio lying in a field after climbing over an electric fence. It was near the scene of an accident. A police source told the News that Kouandjio yelled, “Shoot me!” as police approached.

It sounds a little like Cardinals pass-rusher Chandler Jones turning up at a Massachusetts police station shirtless last spring, displaying erractic behavior.

“We are aware of the matter involving Cyrus and are carefully monitoring his condition and gathering more information,” the Bills said in a statement. “We don’t have all of the details, so we won’t have any further comment at this time.”

Kouandjio was not arrested, but he was taken to a nearby hospital for observation.

  1. “It sounds a LOT like Cardinals pass-rusher Chandler Jones turning up at a Massachusetts police station shirtless last spring, displaying erractic behavior.”

    Fixed that for you.

  2. As the article points out, he’s not the first NFL player to act erratically in recent years. Unfortunately, concussions can cause long term symptoms. Hope he gets a thorough examination.

  3. Fat Albert was right…
    “Dope is for dopes, and Drugs are for dummies…”

  4. “Mr. Kouandjio, the NFL league office is on line one. They want to discuss your upcoming vacation”

  5. C’mon, just another Wednesday night in Buffalo.

    Don’t act like you guys haven’t done the SAME THING half a dozen times.

    Gonna go ahead and assume there might have been a “Don’t ” in there. Would love some body cam footage

    I think you would be absolutely astounded to learn how many people scream “shoot me” at the police. It happens dozens of times each day across the United States

  8. Look at the bright side. At least he wasn’t “hanging out” with Jamal Anderson in a convenience store in the wee hours of the night.

    Probably Spice, aka synthetic marijuana.

    ————————————————————

    Which… if you’ve ever tried both… you’ll know one is nothing like the other.

    K2, Spice, or whatever is definitely not marijuana.
    Just another way that government and media try to demonize something that isn’t really that bad.

    Happy 420 ya’ll.

    Why does everyone feel like disrobing in these situations?
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Likely due to the blood redistribution that occurs when people take intoxicants messing with the skins sensory receptors and making the body think it is over heating.

  11. The problem is a lot of the stuff sold as “synthetic marijuana” has zero relation to it and no cannabinoids.

    Most are products made in China with all kinds of nasty chemicals tossed in that will either outright kill you or result in crazy behavior like this guy and Chandler Jones.

  12. “Perfect Patriot”

    SMH the Pats dumped Jones because of that incident. But just keep posting drivel without any actual thought behind it.

  13. Man, between this and Seantrel Henderson getting suspended 10 games for using ganja for his Crohn’s Disease, the Bills’ OT room has to be the single position group in the league that has taken the biggest hit (no pun intended) from the No Fun League’s BS marijuana rules….

    Memo to Roger Goodell: support for legalization of marijuana is over 60% in the US. Your players are regularly undergoing brain and physical trauma that is likely partially alleviated by weed more so than anything else out there.

    Goodell and the owners bear their share of the blame for incidents like this in my opinion. Spice is dangerous, and Cyrus wouldn’t be smoking it unless the NFL’s draconian weed prohibition was still in place.

    Man, Wrecks may be gone, but the bills have still turned into the browns.

    …without the 8 championships.

  17. Everybody cracking jokes and thinks this is funny. This is far from comedic. These men that we enjoyed watching every Sunday for our entertainment are turning up with serious neurological issues and you dummies are joking about it. Really? Judgemental stone throwers….

  18. PFT lawyer, please clarify if I make a mistake here, but….

    People who smack the NFL for its marijuana rules need to remember the NFL is a nation-wide entity. State laws vary in places with NFL teams, but the drug remains illegal by Federal law, and given that, I don’t see what choice the NFL has about it.

    State laws permitting pot are valid only to the degree that the Federal government has not stepped in and sued them to restore the nationwide effect of Federal laws, which trump (or Trump) state laws. So the local laws are only working because the Obama administration was lenient with them. The Trump administration may not be: the NFL may simply be standing pat while it waits to see what the new policy will be.

    What makes you think this is a neurological issue and just a result of him being high AF?

  20. MattBileAuthor: You are correct that marijuana remains federally illegal, and thus the NFL should be careful not to take any stance to officially endorse it on behalf of the league.

    However, it’s important to distinguish between the illegality of it, and the NFL’s random drug testing (which could easily be abolished).

    Players arent really afraid of getting arrested if they smoke 1 or 2 joints. They are afraid of getting randomly drug tested and losing their careers and millions of dollars.

    The NFL could quietly do away with random piss testing (for marijuana only) and should do so in the next CBA.

    The owners should be ashamed for using this as a chit against the players in negotiations, this should be seen as a basic health and freedom issue.

  21. To sum up my point, how pissed off would Robert Kraft and Jerry Jones be if they were subjected to random testing for Viagra? They’d just use Cialis instead… same thing is happening here. It’s silly to demonize the players when the solution is as simple as just not piss testing them for weed

    Why not I guess…

  23. Cops ain’t gonna shoot you if you ask them to….where’s the fun in that? They only shoot when you’re least expecting it, like when you’re standing still with your hands up.

    If more people actually stopped, stood still, put their hands up and followed cops’ instructions — as opposed to mouthing off, acting tough, resisting or trying to elude — it’s likely a whole lot fewer would be shot.

  25. He had just found out that the Bills were seriously considering signing up Kaepernick….

  26. See? Those damned cops never do what they’re asked to do! He begged them to shoot him, but they didn’t. They should be suspended!
