When Josh Gordon was arrested for DUI early Saturday morning in Raleigh, he was driving a vehicle registered to former University of North Carolina guard P.J. Hairston.
This story just keeps on getting better and better as Hairston is actually involved in his own little scandal as well, though obviously not as calamitous as Gordon's. Hairston was playing in a pick-up game at a local YMCA in which Kentrell Barkley, a high school player who is being recruited by several mid-major programs, alleges that the former Tarheel sucker-punched him in the forehead and then again in the neck. Hairston's agent admitted his client threw the punch but said it was retaliatory. This again brings to the forefront the type of people Gordon associates himself with. Maybe if we heard a story about how he went to church with someone or was driving a car loaned to him by the Meals on Wheels organization so that he could deliver food to the elderly, we'd be inclined to have some sympathy or compassion for him, but each time something comes out about him, it is filled with some sort of strife, negativity and/or a need for a police report. The NFL should just move his hearing up and suspend him indefinitely. It's clear that this guy has some serious problems that aren't going to get better by paying him millions of dollars to play football.ANALYST: Howard Bender
Sio Moore has been taken off the PUP list.
Moore was recovering from hip surgery, that he underwent last February. The surgery is considered to be a major, not a minor procedure. He did rack up 90 tackles last season despite missing five games, so getting him back for the beginning of the season is a priority for the Raider defense. Analysis: Ivar G. Anderson
