Off-field issues like Rodriguez's put NFL teams in tough spot

  • The Bears' Evan Rodriguez talks with reporters Tuesday after practice in Lake Forest. Authorities say Rodriguez was ticketed for driving under the influence, speeding and improper lane usage and was ticketed early Friday on Interstate 90, near downtown Chicago. The incident was the second encounter the 24-year-old Rodriguez has had with police this year. In March, Rodriguez was charged with disorderly intoxication and resisting an officer in Miami. Those charges were eventually dropped.

You think the Bears should cut Evan Rodriguez for his off-field transgressions? Please, stop it. This is the NFL and that's not how it works in professional football.
