Evan Rodriguez Issues Apology after DUI Arrest


Following his recent DUI, his second run-in with the law this offseason, second year H-back Evan Rodriguez issued an apology through the Bears:

“I am deeply sorry for the incident that occurred the other night,” Rodriguez said in a statement. “I want to apologize to the entire Bears organization, my teammates, coaches and Bears fans everywhere. I realize that I made a very poor decision. I know that more is expected of me and that I let a lot of people down that are counting on me. I will make positive changes in my life so that this doesn’t happen again.”

Apology or not, I’ve already stated my opinion on the matter – the Bears should cut ERod immediately.  If they don’t cut him, Emery looks to be pretty weak.  Make an example of a young, mid-round pick and show the team who’s in charge.  There’s a new administration in charge and they need to set the tone.

Rodriguez has a history of alcohol-related incidents, so forgive me if I don’t buy his whole, “I will make positive changes” business.

What do you think?  Do you buy Rodriguez’s apology?  Should he get another chance?

BEAR DOWN!!!

    Cut him loose and somehow get Tyler Clutts back. That guy blew up defenders. Probably still does for Huston. Why did the Bears trade him?

      Because the Bears didn’t think they needed an actual fullback. Thank you Mike Tice.

    I think he needs to prove he is making changes. Like verifiable attendance in counseling, with progress reported to management. I do believe that people can change, but only if they want to badly enough. With his career on the line providing the motivation? Lets hope he can…
