A tantrum, a fight and a weird landing celebration ended with just one NFL participant running a publish pattern straight to the unemployment line.
Now-former Baltimore Raven Jordan Lasley bought his walking papers Wednesday immediately after a crazy 7 days that included fighting with teammates, scoring a touchdown and inexplicably throwing a football into a pond. Lasley, a 2018 fifth-spherical decide out of UCLA, began out his horrible week by fighting with Ravens cornerback Cyrus Jones throughout drills. When safety Bennett Jackson tried out to split it up, Lasley fought him, way too.
Fights are almost nothing new in teaching camps, but what occurred up coming was absolutely a 1st. Lasley hauled in a touchdown move and then promptly hurled the pigskin into a nearby pond. Times later on, the Ravens slash him. Mentor John Harbaugh insisted it had nothing to do with the preventing, and the workforce can absolutely find the money for footballs.
“We never lower anybody for combating,” Harbaugh told ESPN.com. “It really is over a yr now. From a match point of view, in terms of what we are trying to do with our offense, other fellas are heading to be a much better match.”
It is additional possible that Lasley obtained slash on the merits- or lack of them. As a rookie final period, he by no means observed the subject. That followed a junior year at UCLA in which he led the Pac 12 in receiving yards with one,264 and caught 69 passes, like nine touchdowns, just before declaring for the draft.
On Thursday, the Oakland Raiders claimed Lasley off waivers.
