He really didn’t have a choice.
No way he was going to be able to get on the field next year when his five game suspension was over. Too big of a dark cloud hanging over his head. The GTA stunts of last week sealed his fate. He isn’t Cam Newton, so he wasn’t going to be able to skate and talk his way out of the situation.
Just like Tiger found out and recently that Weiner guy, once the new age media sees blood in the water it is over.
From a pure football standpoint he isn’t ready for the NFL.
His best bet is to go to Canada for a couple of years hone his skills and then try to get on in the NFL. He needs to learn how to play the quarterback position.
The worst thing that can happen to him be a 7th round supplemental draft pick of some NFL team who will never allow to grow as quarterback. They have car dealerships in Canada, get to packing.
