Dez Bryant Arrested: 9 Other Athletes Not Just Focusing On Their Sport

We so badly want to be looking forward to the Olympics! We want to support our favorite athletes as they all go for the gold. But there are some athletes that are really bumming us out instead — you know, the ones that are getting arrested for doing terrible, stupid and terribly stupid things. Dallas Cowboys wide receiver, Dez Bryant, is our most recent disappointment. After Dez’s mother made some desperate 911 calls saying that her son was “assaulting” her and that he refused to leave the house, Dez turned himself in to the police yesterday and was booked for assault, family violence, a Class A misdemeanor. At least he turned himself in, but really, who hurts their mother? We will never forgive him for this!

July 15 – Jason Kidd, 10-time NBA All Star point guard, got a DWI in Southampton on Sunday morning after crashing into a telephone pole. Hey Kidd, can you hear us now?

July 14 – Marshawn Lynch, who plays for the Seattle Seahawks, was arrested in his hometown for driving under the influence. This isn’t even a first offense! In 2008, he struck a pedestrian outside of a bar and drove off.

July 14 (yep, it was a great night)- Denver Broncos defensive end Elvis Dumervil was arrested in Miami on a charge of aggravated assault with a firearm. That’s dumb and scary and … OK, we’ll stop that.

Top 10 Hottest New NFL Draft Picks — For Football Fans And The Rest Of Us

Most people fall into two categories: those who know exactly what happened at the first round of the NFL draft last night, and those of us whose knowledge of football starts with “John Madden” and ends with “skintight pants” (two phrases we promise never, ever to write in the same sentence again). This list of the Top 10 Hottest New NFL Draft Picks aims to please both categories, but probably mostly the second.

Now, the draft might not be over until Saturday, but there is already a serious contingency of hotties being recruited, like Carolina Panthers pick Luke Kuechly, new Buffalo Bill Stephon Gilmore, new Miami Dolphin Ryan Tannehill, and Tampa Bay Buccaneers pick Mark Barron, just for starters. (Yeah, we know that Andrew Luck and Robert Griffin III went #1 and #2, but they’re both kinda busted.) Oh, and did we mention that these guys are also instant millionaires on top of being babes? Kind of makes up for forcing you imagine John Madden in shockingly-tight football pants, right? You’re welcome.
