Ndamukong Suh ticketed for negligent driving

It's being reported by ESPN that Nebraska's top defensive lineman Ndamukong Suh has been 'ticketed for negligent driving' after hitting three parked cars in his Land Rover Sport. It's also being claimed that Suh had been drinking before the incident - although he was well below the legal limit. Nobody was injured in the three-car smash and Suh has said the accident happened after he swerved to avoid hitting an animal that had crosses onto the road. It remains to be seen whether this will have any impact on his long term draft stock.

Well.....he's black listed now. I still think TR should probably be running the Make a Wish Foundation, not a NFL team.

I don't want a bunch of convicts, but I also understand that nobody is perfect in life. It was very dumb of Suh, but to think we have most likely written him off as a Seahawk (under TR's watch) is just ludicrous.

Personally, I don't read too much into this. He was well under the alcohol limit and as long as he was avoiding a dog/cat as he says, sometimes these things happen.

However, we all know Tim Ruskell looks closely for character red flags. Will this be one?

I don't think Ruskell will care too much about this. He was part of the team that drafted Warren Sapp in Tampa. Sapp had character red flags.

Ruskell said Sapp was a guy whose talent was just so great they considered it worth the risk to draft him. And I think he also said he would 'consider' drafting someone in Seattle if they fit the bill like that as well. Can't be 100% sure on the last part.
