If the Green Bay Packers have any sense, they will trade or cut Brandon Underwood before the NFL preseason begins.
I'm assuming that Underwood told the truth when he said the sex in Lake Delton was consensual. The law enforcement response is consistent with this report. I'm pretty libertarian when it comes to the acts of consenting adults. I feel bad for Underwood's family, but it isn't the Packers' job to play nursemaid.
However, Underwood has demonstrated that he is an idiot with neither impulse control nor common sense. He embarrassed his family, endangered the health of his wife, and put his teammates at risk of robbery, arrest and infamy. The Packers cannot afford to keep him around.
And if Mrs. Underwood is wise, she will divorce his sorry ass while she can still get a decent child support settlement. His stock in the NFL is about to plummet. With his demonstrated impulse-control problems, he is likely to piss away his money on booze, drugs and hookers long before he turns 30.
Of course, if Brandon Underwood's agent has any sense, he will check him into a high-profile rehab facility to work on his "sex addiction" and call a press conference so the player can make a public plea for forgiveness and express his belief that, with God's help and the support of his loving wife, he will turn his life around.
