NFL commissioner Roger Goodell said this week that a tougher player conduct policy should be in place before the April 28-29 draft.
Chris Henry, relatively quiet of late, was cited for three traffic violations on March 21st, and had his car impounded. If you put the citations into a logical order, you can more or less deduce how this one played out. I like to think that in the normally excruciating period of time while the cops were running his license, he was sending taunting text messages to Pacman Jones.
Goodell, it was announced today, will meet with Pacman next week to discuss the latter's ongoing legal issues.
Since Goodell wants a new discipline policy in place by time the draft rolls around, we're short on time. Between Pacman and Henry, whomever ends up having gotten into more trouble by the time the new policy is adopted should have the policy named after him, i.e., the "Chris Henry rule".
I guess Tank Johnson should be included in this because:
1) being in jail doesn't preclude one from doing bad shit
2) his name is Tank.
If we had to look at this race, I'd say that Chris Henry has lead the charge for most of the last year-and-a-half, withstanding a surge up the standings by Johnson and an impressive post-draft, pre-season rap sheet from Santonio Holmes. Jones' weekend in Vegas alone might put him neck-and-neck with Henry, but there's still time. This isn't over.
