In a follow up to a post yesterday, Broncos' receiver David Kircus has now been charged with assault.
"Obviously if he didn't handle himself the right way he won't be with us," Broncos coach Mike Shanahan said. "But I'm going to let the due process take care of itself first and find out exactly what the situation is."
Nice to see someone in the NFL using the term "due process" and waiting to find out the particulars and letting law enforcement handle the details.
But, one supposes, it's much easier to remember the tenants of justice and to give the benefit of the doubt, when the individual charged is not only white, but is one of the rarest of creatures: a white receiver.
We suspect a white running back could be caught with a smoking gun, and still hold his roster spot.
