i found this in an article from April 12th, looks like he could still have a felony with the assault rifle
" He also faces felony charges of... possession of an assault weapon, and misdemeanor possession of a high-capacity magazine in connection with a Sig Sauer 516 short-barreled rifle authorities seized from his home"
Let's be honest here.....the interest in the NFL and football in general is slipping. Parents not wanting their kids to have head injuries, the politics, horrible tv and issues with the product are causing problems for the NFL. If they want to grow the league....it has to go international....or at least start drumming up interest in other countries to not just watch but to play in the future. They base is shrinking in the US.....they need a bigger base to draw from....it's inevitable.
I don't know the specifics...don't want to prejudge...but given what the 49ers were saying and what was alleged this kinda smells like a payoff. Dudes career was about to be over...and may still be tarnished. I'm sure he and her both realized that the only way to get compensation was for him to continue playing and her get a settlement.
