Leaf in trouble again
Former NFL quarterback Ryan Leaf has been arrested in Great Falls, Mont., on charges of burglary and drug possession, according to the Associated Press.
Leaf, freed on $76,000 bond, issued a statement on the matter, saying, "I've made some mistakes, and have no excuses," Leaf said Friday night in a statement. "I am using the tools I've learned to move forward rather than backwards, and will be open to talking about the details in the days to come. I am confident that there will be further understanding when the facts are revealed, and feel very blessed for all of the support, especially from my friends and family."
Leaf was the second overall pick in the 1998 NFL Draft, taken by the San Diego Chargers. The Indianapolis Colts took Peyton Manning ahead of Leaf in that draft. Manning, of course, went on to become one of the best quarterbacks in league history, while Leaf became one of the biggest draft busts in league history.
