Just asking.... would that have been the right thing to do?
I don't know, I don't know if cutting him then saying it was because of suspected gang affiliations is the right thing either.
If you trade him... are you going to tell the other team why you don't want him? I think it would be "passing the buck" & not the right thing to do.
I don't have a problem with them cutting him, they don't have to give the reasons they did though (& really I don't know if the Eagles said it was because of the gang stuff, or just "off-field" stuff). Let the other team make up their mind though.
