Default Newton Aimed To Be Biggest Dope Man

Sorry Cowboys fans. I couldn't resist posting this when I saw it.

Quote:
Newton Said He Stood To Make $75K Per Drug Deal
Associated Press

DALLAS -- Former Dallas Cowboys offensive lineman Nate Newton says his competitive nature led him into the drug business.

"I've always been competitive, I've always been in sports," said Newton, a six-time Pro Bowl offensive lineman who retired after the 2000 season. "I couldn't see myself not being the biggest dope man."

Newton, 43, was released from a Louisiana prison last year on drug possession charges after serving about 2 years behind bars.

Newton, of East Ellijay, Ga., estimated he stood to make up to $75,000 per drug deal, another reason he said running drugs appealed to him.

In November 2001, he and two women were pulled over for a traffic violation on Interstate 10 in St. Martin Parish, LA. Newton and the others were accused of hauling 213 pounds of marijuana in their van with plans to sell it.

While out on bond six weeks later, Newton was arrested again, this time in Ellis County. He was accused of hauling 175 pounds of marijuana in the trunk of a car.

Newton made his comments Thursday during a talk show on Dallas radio station KKDA. He said he became remorseful while serving time in a federal prison in Texarkana, before he was transferred to a federal facility in Louisiana.

"I got on my knees and said, 'God, I want to make a deal. ... You protect me in here, and when I come out, I'll do everything I can to make it right,'" he said.

This is in the Dallas Morning News and he's done several radio interviews...I don't think anybody is shocked by anything Nate has to say. You can also catch the interview on MSN. He's out of prison so he has to make a splash and make some money. My guess is he'll write a book.

I think it's pretty common knowledge that Nate's shoe size is larger than his IQ. I remember him as a pretty funny interview, very good football player and well all the dope stuff. He's never struck me as being smart in any sense of that word.
