I think they need to put his dumba§§ in jail. I mean he raped my raiders for something like millions and was a complete bust. I guess the Jets need to look elsewhere for a #3. I mean look at the mugshot just another thug that belongs in jail.

Am I being dumb or does that height chart say he's over 90" tall?!

I thought he was like 6'8" isn't that 80"?

I have a very bad case of broncites and on antibiotics. Also on codeine cough syrup. It makes me sleepy when I take it. I can not get it refilled without going back to my doc. Is this the type of stuff he was arrested for using? :-o
