I didn't want it to end this way.
I appreciated your contributions to the franchise. I'm sorry it never worked out for you to become a successful longtime starter in the league. We all felt safe with you as Russell Wilson's backup, and we would have liked that to continue.
But not now. Dude, why do you even have a gun? Why would you handle a firearm while inebriated? And why on earth would you pull a gun on your wife?
You need to get help. Your NFL career doesn't have to be over, but playing this year seems unlikely. Take the time you need to resolve your mental health issues, make restitution, reconcile with your family and sort out the legal situation. If there are second chances for Mike Vick and Ben Rapistberger, then there is hope for you, too. But getting your life together and providing for your children is far more important than returning to the field.
