The Dallas Cowboys’ are having one heck of an offseason already with their teams bad luck lately.
So far, the teams has suspended a few players for drug use, domestic violence investigation with their top draft pick and their bus accident that killed a few workers.
The Cowboys had received criticism last season for the decision to sign Greg Hardy… this came after his reinstatement to play again in the league too. in 2015, Hardy was suspended after an assault on his now ex-girlfriend.
Now, the Cowboys are dealing with a similar issue as before since their top, first-round draft pick Ezekiel Elliot is currently under investigation for a domestic abuse case.
The former Ohio State Running back’s ex-girlfriend posted some pics to social media of apparent bruises on her and saying that he hit her while they were in a parked car together.
It’s a “He said, She said” case, but it’s still under investigation in Columbus Ohio.
The drug suspensions are on three top defensive players; defensive ends DeMarcus Lawrence and Randy Gregory and the middle linebacker Rolando McClain.
The three players were suspend for substance abuse violations and Randy Gregory is facing additional suspension with a 10 game suspension as this isn’t first offense with drug suspension. Gregory is currently enrolled in at a rehabilitation drug treatment center seeking help for his issues.
Rolando McClain is no stranger to this offense either, he was suspended for the first four games in the 2015 season and now he’s going to be missing 10 more games for this current season.
These guy were both placed on the “Reserved/Did Not Report” list today too.
DeMarcus Lawrence will only be missing four games this season and that’s for his usage of amphetamine.
It’s not surprise that he appealed that, but unfortunately his appeal was denied.
Hopefully this will end their bad luck because last week, the Cowboys bus collided with a van on an Arizona Highway killing four people inside.
It’s sad to say that the four of their staff members who perished in this wreck were a 52-year old male driver, two 52-year old females and a 19-year old female who were all Chinese nationals and according to the report, were all wearing their seat belts.
