    Nope.

    Texting a woman what he did makes him sound like a Jovan Belcher waiting to happen. I will pass on this bum.

    As a Gator grad (class of 84) and Gator fan who still lives in Gainesville......no thanks on Rainey. Love his speed, hate his "bitches be crazy" lifestyle.

    I just hope he does not return to Gainesville. The first time could have been a insane GF, the 2nd time shows that nope, it is him.

    He's been doing that kind of stuff since high school. Why would we want his little, fumbling a** anyway? He's not even a good player.

    Pittsburgh Steelers running back Chris Rainey was arrested Thursday morning and charged with one count of simple battery (dating violence), the Gainesville, Fla., police department confirmed. The arrest quickly cost Rainey his job.

    So this did happen in Gainesville, I wonder if it was the same girl.

    This serves as one of those reason why personally I'm not that critical of the FO as most seem to be! When they don't take a chance on players with checkered past. We cry and criticize about the Dez Bryant and Santonio Holmes this FO could have but chose to by-pass. Can you really blame them? Obviously, I want to win just like everyone else, but sometime you just gotta draw a line in the sand and say, NO!

    Rarely once those two players, as examples I just mention Byrant and Holmes start acting like idiots! Do you hear people come back and say, "You know what that was a good call by this FO?"

    Dez and Santonio are both pro bowl players though. We're talking about a 3rd/4th string RB. Completely different scenario.

    Is the conclusion suppose to be, "You can be a problem player/person as long as your NOT a 3rd/4th string RB?"

    Sadly in the NFL thats the case.

    You really think the Dolphins would release Wake or Dansby if they got arrested?

    Pro Bowl calibur since neither has ever been selected to go to Hawaii. Although Dez probably should have been voted to go this year.

    Unlikely but it may also depends on what they got arrested for.

    In Rainey's case, he had a history of domestic violence and Pittsburgh gave him a chance to overcome his past. He didn't so they moved on.

    If they both decided to start slapping women around then , "Yes, I fully expect them to!" and would not have a problem with it! Obviously the best situation would be to get something for them ala Brandon Marshall!

    Ray Lewis basically killed a guy and no one seemed to care because he was the face of a franchise. Something tells me if Tom Brady started slapping women around he would still be on the Pats.

    Don't get me wrong I think its ridiculous NFL and pro athletes get away with anything and everything and still get paid millions of dollars.

    Eh, maybe I'm biased cuz I'm a Gators fan but I think the kid has a lot of talent/ speed and we could use that in spades on offense the way we are right now.... What the hell ever happened to Jeff Demps after the Olympics? I always thought he was better than Rainey... Never caught on anywhere I guess?

    Rainey does have a lot of talent/speed but his is trouble young man who needs to get his act together. Maybe he needs to go where Brandon Marshall went for therapy?

    Demps signed with New England and then injured himself and ended up on season ending IR.

    Obviously not, but thank you for the condescending remarks.

    The fact that either Ray Lewis himself or a member of his entourage was involved is up for dispute. FACT is, his blood stained suite he wore that night was never found, and giving false statements to police? Cmon now.

    Then you could actually justify the risk being taken IMO. No sense on taking a risk on some scrub.

    I know someone who had a run in with him in Gainesville and witnessed the aftermath of another. The dude is absolutely disturbed. Sounds like he has undiagnosed BPD (borderline personality disorder) to me, actually. The dude is always ready to explode into an uncontrollable rage.

    Not worth it. No way. Guys who take up 5% of your effort to keep corralled (and will always eventually go of the reservation anyway) and only add 1% to the product on the field are a bad bet every time.

    Jeff Ireland should bring him in a for a look, make fun of his mom and then tell him that the Fins were never really interested.

    I don't see why everyone is making such a big deal about stars that get second chances while scrubs are written off. It's like that everywhere, not just sports. If you contribute less than the problems you create, you are gone, end of story. If you are an integral part of your organization and you make a mistake, of course someone is more likely to let you off with a stern warning or punishment but not termination. My boss runs one of the most efficient units in my company and also got in major trouble for hanky panky with employees. Would an ineffective manager have gotten away with that? No, but one who is outstanding at his job is gonna get a chance to show that he learned his lesson.

    Even if he had a clean record, what's there to be intrigued about with this guy? Speed? Great, we can get speed anywhere minus all the baggage he brings. Besides, we don't need another player bringing negative attention to the team.
