A couple years ago during the NFL lockout, much was made of the arrest list compiled by NFL people during the league's self-imposed downtime. (I use the word "people" because it wasn't just players. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers had a coach and a front office person make the list.)
When the season was set to resume in July 2011, we tallied things up to see which team had "won the race" for the Crimesman Trophy for offseason crime (with the actual trophy being a version of the Hesiman, except instead of the right arm pointing out holding off would-be defenders, both arms were being handcuffed).
Not surprisingly, Tampa Bay took home the prize with Kenny Britt singlehandedly putting the Titans in the runner-up spot.
Well, with the league getting a little (stress little) more risk-averse when it comes to employing turds, we might have to readjust how we track the Crimesman for the 2013 offseason, what with Titus Young and Cliff Harris both unemployed right now. These two titans of crime might force us to make the Crimesman an individual award.
"Titus Young and Cliff Harris?" some of you may be asking. Who? Well, I'll tell you.More »
