The Cowboys wasted no time and cut him immediately.
In a phone call with NBC 5 Tuesday, Whitehead said he repeatedly told the team he didn't commit the crime, wasn't arrested and that the incident didn't happen. "We feel like we've given Lucky a lot of different chances along the way going back to a year ago and I think just decided it was time to go in a different direction".
Whitehead was escorted off the field by a Cowboys public relations staff member following Monday's practice and was not allowed to speak with the media.
Whitehead and his agent maintained his innocent and said that it was a case of mistaken identity, but the Cowboys seemed ready to move on from the troubled receiver. At this point, the police department is also confident in confirming that Mr. Whitehead's identity was falsely provided to police during the investigation.Читайте также: Solar eclipse map: How close will you be?
The negativity surrounding Whitehead seemed to add up and left the Cowboys with very little alternative: Last season, Whitehead was late to a Saturday walk-through and was prohibited from a New York Giants match in December. He was released and told to report to court on July 6.
"Lucky is thrilled justice was served and his name was cleared", said Paul. "It's a shame that he came into town to do a camp for kids and he ended up getting cut by his professional football team".
However, the police department today announced that the man who was arrested provided false information, and that Whitehead was misidentified. Officers then checked this information through the Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) database. Shortly after that, Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett used his Stern Voice to tell reporters that the team was "gathering information" and considering cutting Whitehead.
Its been an unlucky month for Whitehead, just last week his American XL Bully pup Blitz was allegedly stolen from his home and held for ransom in Dallas Texas. Early the next morning, Kasino posted a video of him returning the dog to Whitehead.При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
