It's only March right now, and yet, it's already been a really long, really bad NFL offseason for the Baltimore Ravens.
Last month, Ravens running back Ray Rice was arrested in Atlantic City, N.J. for allegedly assaulting his fiancée Janay Palmer. Then, Ravens wide receiver Deonte Thompson was arrested a few days later and charged with suspicion of possessing marijuana and drug paraphernalia after Gainesville, Fla. police pulled him over and suspected him of smoking inside of his vehicle. And now comes the news that Ravens offensive lineman Jah Reid was also arrested over the weekend and charged with two misdemeanor counts of battery for allegedly attacking several men inside of a strip club in Key West, Fla. According to a police report, Reid and a friend were involved in a fight with several men at the Red Garter Saloon after one of the men accidentally bumped into Reid. Reid also allegedly attacked a security guard who tried to intervene.
The Ravens have not released an official statement on the incident yet but have said that they're aware of the incident and are looking into it. But WTF, guys? A year ago, you were coming off a Super Bowl win. And now this is what you have to deal with? You have six months left to get things together. So please, get them together.
