Sergio Kindle LB Baltimore Ravens

Rookie 2nd round pick Sergio Kindle out of Texas missed the entire season due to an episode of narcolepsy that led to him falling down a flight of stairs and fracturing his skull before he even signed a rookie contract. Now he has another off the field incident to deal with as he was arrested for DUI shortly after 4 AM this morning. Apparently Kindle had a few too many Eggnogs before jumping behind the wheel of his vehicle and driving a friend to the airport. Kindle was also charged with speeding and failure to obey traffic control devices. When asked about how much he drank, he responded: "It wasn't much, but I guess it was enough. I guess it was enough for me to fail a Breathalyzer. It was over the limit." His next season is already in question due to his head trauma injury, but this might hurt him in coming back a little more. Since he got hurt before signing his contract, he was signed to just a 1 year $320,000 contract with no incentives and no bonus, he might not be a Raven next year despite the fact that he was a second round selection.

Update: He claimed he didn't drink "much" but he drank enough to be over twice the legal limit, registering a .18.
