Well Bucs fans if you had any lingering doubts as to whether or not the Buccaneers may hold Mike Williams out for a series as a weak punishment for his arrest on Friday morning (a la Braylon Edwards and the Jets), that’s not the case.
Now to be honest even comparing the two cases is unfair, Williams blew under the legal limit and was quite cooperative with the police during his ordeal, Braylon Edwards was nearly twice the legal limit, is a repeat offender and behaved like a petulant child. It’s the details of the case that have caught the Bucs ire though.
Yesterday Bucs GM Mark Dominik said what a lot of people already thought, this was a really weak case and not one the Buccaneers feel will go anywhere. While I mentioned earlier in the week I still thought a valuable lesson could be learned if Williams had to miss time simply for making the decision to put himself in that position, Dominik and Raheem Morris clearly don’t agree.
“We’re not going to sit a player for speeding,” general manager Mark Dominik said Saturday. “And it looks to us as though that’s really the only law he broke here.”
