One Crazy Dude

Maurice Clarett has been arrested. Again. This time following a police chase. He was wearing a bullet-proof vest at the time. In his vehicle were four guns, a half-bottle of vodka, a whole shitload of broken promise, and an endless amount of crazy.

Unless Clarett lands permanently behind bars, I don't see the guy making it past thirty.

In the meantime, maybe Clarett can land a spot with the Bears. Hell, with Thomas Jones nursing a sore hamstring and bruised ego and Cedric Benson out with an injured shoulder, Clarett's services may just be needed (and, frighteningly, I'm only half-kidding). He'd also give the police force of plush Lake Forest something to do. They can't be too busy.

If a gig with the Bears doesn't work out, I'm sure the Canadian Football League has a spot for him. Laurence Phillips and Ricky Williams can give him pointers.

He was supposed to be in court today for his January 1 robbery incident. You have to wonder just WTF he was planning on doing with all that artillery.

My cousin is in Iraq with the Marines and he's not armed as much as Mo was.

And I was on the floor laughing at Woody Paige's suggestion on Around the Horn today that the NFL and Ohio State coordinate something to get Mo into a home, away from his crew and teach him basic life skills. Since when is he their responsibility? He burned his opportunites at both places. Come on Woody, get real.

Personally, I don't think he makes it to 25.
