Why did the Dolphins quickly unload Brandon Marshall Tuesday? Maybe because he punched a woman in the face over the weekend at a New York club?
When she tried to get back upstairs, a bouncer told her she had to wait because there was a fight between two football players — Marshall, 27, and an unknown athlete — who were being thrown out, the sources said.
She later met up with her friends, who by then were arguing with Marshall and the other football player outside, sources said.
Marshall — who earned his nickname with his aggressive style of play — then allegedly cold-cocked Myles in the left eye. She suffered a black eye. It wasn’t clear if he allegedly intended to strike her or one of her pals.
Myles filed a police report Monday with the 10th Precinct against Marshall, sources said. She told cops she waited a day before making the allegation because she was nervous about Marshall’s high-profile status.
Is it possible the Bears had no clue about this incident? [UPDATE: The Bears released a statement saying they were aware of the incident.] Perhaps they were so giddy at the prospect of adding Marshall – only two 3rd round picks! – they just pulled the trigger before seeing if he had recently gotten into trouble? If so, Jeff Ireland, GM of the Dolphins, finally did something right.
Hey Bears fans, was it worth the risk? [NY Post]
