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!!!
