http://www.profootballtalk.com/rumormill.htm SCOUTS EXPLORE WHETHER DREW HAD ROLE IN DENNY'S INCIDENT A reader with access to Pro Football Weekly's pay-based "Inner Circle" tells us that the folks at PFW are reporting that league scouts continue to investigate whether UCLA running back Maurice Drew had any role in the recent incident at a Westwood Denny's that left Ricky Manning facing charges of assault with a deadly weapon after a guy who was using a laptop in the restaurant got the sausage beaten out of him by a group of men. Per PFW, Drew's agent confirmed that the former Bruin was "eating dinner" at the time but says that Drew had no role in the matter. Although Manning and Drew were recently together on the set of NFL Network's Total Access, Drew's agent said that Manning and Drew are not acquaintances. The agent claims that Drew had no involvement or knowledge of the incident, and simply happened to be in the wrong place at the wrong time. Drew is the guy to whom we were referring on Tuesday when we said that the Manning situation could get interesting as the draft unfolds. Based on the statements from Drew's agent (and agents have no reason to spin the facts for their clients), there's no connection. Until there's evidence to the contrary, however, we've got no reason to dispute the account of Drew's agent.
