    I like how they phrased it

    Seriously though I liked Hawkins a lot I was sad to see him go, maybe he was drinking out of shame for trying out for the Jets?

    That was dissapointing to see as I was always impressed with the way Hawkins carried himself. He did what he was asked and was a very versatile player. Switching to safety and filling in nicely while also contributing on different special teams. I know he was injured but he was someone that I couldnt figure out why he didn't get picked up. The guy was a starting player at times for a few years for us. I don't see how he couldn't be a contributor let alone a roster filler for teams like the Bengals, Dolphins or Rams.

    "Do you know who I am?" Yes, Artrell, you were an angry, maybe drunk customer fighting outside my gas station at 3am! Stupid move going back after being arrested to chastise the attendant!

    +1. I was surprised he was cut this year. Hate to see this. He was always good on WEEI too.

    Re: Former Patriot Artrell Hawkins Arrested

    The mental toll if must have to be cut from a team which is second to only your family, has got to be tough.
    It's things like this that lead people to excessive drinking and acting normally like they would not.
    I would love to see him come back as a coaching intern somewhere.
    With his booming voice it be easy for the players to pay attention and maybe respect the guy more.
    Plus DP always said the way he handled the mental and physical aspects of safety was very impressive.
    Always loved this guy

    Definitely a shame to see. It can't be easy suddenly finding yourself on the sidelines and out of work, but that's no excuse for that kind of behavior. (I'd speculate that the tirade at the clerk came from realizing that police involvement virtually assured that his NFL career was over.)

    Re: Former Patriot Artrell Hawkins Arrested

    To be fair maybe the clerk calling the police was unwarranted, Hawkins gets a little tipsy, maybe not the kindest to the clerk and the clerk calls the police out of spite knowing that at night the police will treat this guy more severe when a call of distress is put out.
    I can't see him harassing the clerk this guy was a role model player and as far as I knew citizen.

    Ditto steve. Artrell did carry himself well here, maybe it's a difference in lockerroom influence.

    Excuses, excuses. I am almost glad the fairy land veneer is wearing through for our team. We have a lot of talented players, most of whom are really great human beings also.

    But they are human beings. Some have great character, some are probably jerks. The one thing they have in common is they take football seriously and keep their nose relatively clean or they are gone.

    Artrell was one of my favorite player of recent years, but he apparently f**ed up.

    He was sh**faced drunk, backed into somebody, argued with them then came back and threatened the store clerk, according to the story.

    He wasn't slightly tipsy on a spot of sherry, engaging a passerby in conversation about an unfortunate fender bender, then politely questioning the store clerk about the necessity of reportage.:rolleyes:

    The truth will set you free.

    That is some voice.

    Artrell is going to get all of James Earl Jones' work once the big guy departs the scene.

    Hope everything turns out well for him. He goes back to Ohio and reverts to Bengal form right away. That's too bad.
