1) For the same reasons any "boss" should help an employee in need, 2) He's an NFL player now and representing the league, 3) It's the right thing to do.

Anyone and everyone with an attorney pleads "not guilty" at the first court date. It's part of the process. Majority of the time it leads to a plea agreement based on a later "guilty" plea down the road.
