Based on my understanding of the ending in Cleveland, which went through hell and back with him over several years. As competition was ramping up, he grew tight, began acting erratically and the Browns were convinced he was on the verge of a relapse, so they parted ways.Does it? I mean, he’s a high level athlete and an addict. It seems kind of syllogistic.
P’tucket put it well — high stakes football for him is a trigger.
Have nothing but sympathy and on the basic issue whether the NFL should be policing any of this, I am conflicted. Addicts in our society in a wide variety of professions and callings perform at a high level for decades drunk, stoned and whatever.
