What Is Going on in Miami?

It was a bit shocking last week when Miami tackle Jonathan Martin left the team and was put on the non-football injury list for "emotional reasons." But we're starting to get some more information on what's going on in the Miami locker room and it seems to take the usual rookie hazing to a new (and surprisingly financial) level. Dolphins veterans are apparently pressuring some rookies into paying for meals until they've exhausted their $390,000 rookie salaries.

Justin Blackmon Suspended Rest of 2013

Justin Blackmon just can't get his act together, and the Jacksonville Jaguars just can't catch a break. Blackmon has been suspended eight games (i.e. the rest of the year) for blowing the NFL substance abuse policy, again. He's allowed to apply for reinstatement in 2014. This doesn't appear to be about performance-enhancing drugs. The guy needs rehab. Remember when Blackmon came out and he was supposed to be "Dez Bryant, but with a better head on his shoulders?"

“The Degradation of a Young Stud," Starring Robert Griffin

Sounds like an adult film, right? It is and it isn’t. What I witnessed from Washington’s passing offense against Denver this weekend was so nasty it will compel viewers take a long shower afterwards. Equally disturbing is that this film possesses a lot of elements of an exploitation flick and I had a difficult time watching an innocent, young talent treated this way. Worst of all, it’s difficult to assess blame and there in lurks the elements of psychological horror that chills the blood.
