Henry Ruggs III a** is grass, and there is no coming back from a senseless act with the world desiring punishment.
“The Raider Image — the team’s official online store — has completely scrubbed Ruggs from its site … and a search for “Ruggs” or “Henry Ruggs III” comes back with zero results,” per TMZ Sports.
On early Tuesday morning, Ruggs III was arrested on DUI after crashing his Corvette into a RAV4, killing a woman.
The Las Vegas Raiders also released Ruggs III in the aftermath of the incident. Despite suffering injuries along with a female in the passenger, no one can’t get over the fact he just ruined his NFL career.
No one will have any desire to wear anything Ruggs III worthy since he’s about to become the late Chris Benoit of the NFL. The main difference, of course, is this was an accident. He didn’t intentionally go out to harm anyone, so it makes you wonder if he will ever get another shot in the NFL?
In 2009, former Cleveland Browns wide receiver Donte Stallworth pleaded guilty to DUI manslaughter after he struck and killed a construction worker, Mario Reyes, in Miami Beach, Florida. Stallworth had a blood-alcohol level of .126 after the crash, above Florida’s .08 limit.
Stallworth, who was 28 at the time, was suspended without pay for the entire 2009 season by NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell for violating the league’s personal conduct and substance abuse policy. He had faced the possibility of 15 years in prison, but served just 24 days of a 30-day sentence and reached a settlement with Reyes’ family to avoid a civil suit.
Stallworth returned to the NFL in 2010 and played in eight games for the Baltimore Ravens that season. He played in 11 games for the Washington Football Team in 2011 and spent his last season in the NFL with New England Patriots in 2012.
2009 is a much different landscape than 2021. We will have to see how the legal process plays out before Ruggs can even think about stepping out on the field.
