By now you’ve probably heard about the fallen Leaf, Ryan Leaf.
The former NFL #2 pick was popped not once, but twice this week for breaking into home and stealing prescription drugs.
Leaf was arrested in Montana and one set of reports indicated that he had Hydrocodone that was not in his name.
Authorities in Texas are already trying to revoke his probation there on unrelated drug charges.
It’s been a sad downward spiral for the former QB. But he’s one of the estimated 7,000,000 million people in America hooked on prescription drugs.
It’s pretty clear that his life is mimicking his career in the NFL. The ups and downs of drug use have him sitting in jail for what could be 30 days.
Leaf needs help. Leaf needs to turn his life around. If he has any friends left from the NFL, they need to come help him. He needs to beat his addictions and he needs the support for it.
It’s easy to rally around your quarterback when he’s leading you down the field in a game winning drive. But now that the roar of the crowd has been silenced and the game is long over, Leaf finds himself with an unsportsman like penalty that could have facing serious jail time.
