      • Jaguars DE Fowler arrested on battery charges
        Jaguars DE Dante Fowler was arrested on misdemeanor charges of simple battery and mischief in St. Petersburg, Fla. on Tuesday night.

        Fowler allegedly got out of his car, hit a man, knocking off his glasses, and then stepped on them. The arrest comes exactly one month after DC Todd Wash said Fowler has "matured a lot" heading into his third year. Fowler was released early this morning on $650 bond. The former No. 3 overall pick missed all of 2015 with a torn ACL and recorded just four sacks last season while taking eight penalties.

        UPDATE: Court records show Dante Fowler was arrested in March 2016 in Miami Beach on charges of assault on officer/EMT, resisting arrest.

        Those Fowler misdemeanor charges were dropped in Dec. 2016, as would normally be the case after completion of a pretrial diversion program.
        Dante Fowler cited 10-plus times in 20 months
        According to Mike Kaye of First Coast News, Jaguars DE Dante Fowler has at least 10 traffic tickets dating back to December 2015.

        Since it was revealed he was arrested on Tuesday night for hitting a man, knocking off his glasses, stomping on the glasses, and taking the man's groceries and throwing them into a lake at an apartment complex all because the man criticized Fowler's driving, Kaye has decided to dig into local court records. It has revealed Fowler was once cited for driving 98 MPH in a 55 zone and another citation was for careless driving, causing $1,500 in property damage. Fowler could be subject to a suspension following his recent battery and criminal mischief charges.

        • Falcons CB Jalen Collins suspended 10 games by NFL

          Around The NFL
          Another season, another rocky start for Falcons third-year cornerback Jalen Collins.

          After serving a four-game suspension in 2016 for violating the league's policy on performance-enhancing substances, Collins was hit with a 10-game suspension to start 2017 for a repeat offense, the team announced Sunday.

          Collins won't be allowed to practice with the team after the preseason ends and cannot return until Nov. 21.

          "We are extremely disappointed that for the second straight season we are dealing with a suspension for Jalen," general manager Thomas Dimitroff said in a statement. "Such are the consequences when certain choices are made. Our decisions going forward will be based on what Dan and I feel is best for the team."

          Had it not been for a phenomenal 12 games last season, this might have been the last straw for Collins, a second-round pick out of LSU. However, there were few defensive players more valuable to the Falcons down the stretch in 2016, especially after Desmond Trufant was injured.

          Over 636 snaps last year, Collins logged two picks, 10 pass breakups and 28 solo tackles. He also had 10 tackles in a 34-28 overtime loss to the Patriots in Super Bowl LI.
          Collins easily is the biggest draft mistake in the Quinn/Thomas Dimitroff era. The Falcons can’t count on Collins, and it’s doubtful they could get much of value in trade for him. Which team would give up real assets for a largely-unproven player who is one failed PED test away from a two-year ban? Any team that wants Collins could just wait for the Falcons to release him, a move that seems inevitable.
