An NFL team having to release a first round draft pick mean something went terribly wrong, and the Raiders have just done that TWICE in one week.
A week ago, the team released Henry Ruggs after the budding WR tragically killed a Las Vegas woman while driving drunk at 154 mph.
Now, the team’s other first round pick from that draft, Damon Arnette is also gone.
Days after the Ruggs incident, Arnette posted a conspicuous and disturbing video flaunting high powered weapons, threatening to kill someone who appears to be someone he was exchanging direct messages with on Instagram.
Not surprisingly, he’s now off the team and will likely have a hard time finding a new one.
Ah yes, the glory of being “cool” going 154 mph and flashing weapons, all in exchange for fame and generational wealth.
Seems like a fair trade.
