Quote:
CBS4 Investigator Brian Maass has learned that Matt Russell, the Denver Broncos Director of Player Personnel, was arrested and jailed in Summit County over the weekend after police say he was suspected of being involved in an accident the mountain town of Frisco, then crashed into a police car a few minutes later in Breckenridge.


Quote:
Russell was arrested and booked into the Summit County Jail. He is facing charges of driving under the influence, careless driving resulting in injury, having an open container of alcohol in his car, and failure to display proof of insurance.


According to PFT, "Russell was viewed as John Elway's heir apparent on the personnel side of the organization, and they even blocked the Chargers from interviewing him for their General Manager position this offseason."

Matt Russell statement: I deeply regret the poor judgment I demonstrated that resulted in my arrest over the weekend. I apologize to the Denver Broncos, our fans and the National Football League for this inexcusable mistake. I'm ashamed that I represented this region and the Broncos organization in the manner that I did. Going forward, I will take steps to ensure this never happens again.

Broncos statement: Our organization is extremely disappointed and concerned with the incident involving Matt Russell. We immediately expressed our disappointment to Matt, and he is fully aware of the seriousness of this situation. This type of behavior is unacceptable and very troubling. We expect better from all employees, particularly those in leadership. We are continuing to gather information and will handle this matter appropriately and in accordance with all NFL policies.

Don't take this the wrong way, but he looks like straight up white trash in his mug shot.

Von Miller should be traded to the Patriots for a 7th Round Pick as punishment.

I'm not sure if there is even a "right way" with this...nope, this comment is a one way street. But I don't disagree with you.

That's a good question. I know when the Saints coaches were stealing vicodins everybody expected them to eat some serious stuff, but a league discipline never came.

But a coupla years later they needed a fall team for the league and the Saints were right there with the pay-to-injure scheme. It's as if the owner of the Saints got the other owners to back off in the vic deal, saying I'll owe you one. The only Saints that ended up missing work were the guys mixed up in the vic scandal.

Maybe the Broncs better just fork over a fine and let the exec get suspended a coupla weeks.

All a conspiracy to get the Saints, right?

Don't post garbage like this on our forum.

Everyone else, discuss football and stay on topic.

What's the precedent? How many non-players have been suspended for any type of DUI?

Probably a setback to his career. Not acceptable for anyone but especially not something decision makers can do.

Not really sure on that but I personally think this is something we may never hear about the punishment as it's more then likely going to be handled within the team and behind close doors. Don't think the NFL would take action here but I could be wrong.
