So far this off-season, it’s been Titus Young who has done his best to give scolds a player to point to and say, “harrumph, there’s a prime example of someone who just doesn’t GET IT!” Well, now there’s a new f*ck-up in town to absorb the scorn. That would be Buccaneers defensive Da’Quan Bowers, who was arrested at LaGuardia Airport on Monday for carrying a loaded gun.
Bowers was arrested at a check-in counter after he was found with a loaded .40 caliber firearm in his carry-on bag, spokesmen for the Port Authority and the Queens District Attorney’s office said. He was about to board a US Airways flight to Raleigh, North Carolina.
It’s Bowers’ first offense, so he may very well escape a Goodell Ginger Hammering for the beginning of the 2013 season. Of course, that won’t save him from endless rebukes from our favorite Starbucks recyclable hump, Peter King. Bowers will have to mention Newtown during his player intros for the rest of his career to get back in PK’s good graces.
