Hot Routes 2.1.11: Other NFL news

Posted by Josh Katzowitz

  • Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban is a generous sort. Even though Cuban is a lifelong Steelers fans, he’ll even invite the Packers to his Saturday night party. With one caveat. It’s a 10-drink minimum.
  • Yahoo! Sports’ excellent The Postgame has a where-the-hell-are-they-now update on former Colts K Mike Vanderjagt.
  • An interesting piece by CNBC’s Darren Rovell about why he’s not covering the Super Bowl this year (even though he’ll be in Dallas the week of the game).
  • Sometimes reporters aren’t perfect. Just like you’re not perfect at your job. So, cut Peter King some slack. He’s one of the best.
  • If you’re headed to Dallas this weekend for the Super Bowl and you plan to spend money on memorabilia, make sure what you’re buying isn’t counterfeit. Because there’s a bunch of it out there.
  • The proposed stadium for L.A.’s NFL team (you know, assuming it comes to fruition) has a name (Farmers Field).

Vikes DE Everson Griffin tased, arrested near USC

Posted by Will Brinson

Vikings defensive end Everson Griffin was arrested on Monday afternoon for assaulting a police officer near the USC campus.

According to the Daily Trojan, Griffin was pulled over during a traffic stop and became "aggressive" when questioned by law enforcement.

The questions stemmed from Griffin's lack of identification, and after being questioned, attempted to run away, at which time he assaulted one of the officers in pursuit.

Griffin was tased and then arrested on felony battery.

The LAPD has confirmed, according to Judd Zulgad of the Minnesota Star-Tribune, that Griffin's in their custody. Griffin's being held on $50,000 bond.

The 100th overall pick in the 2010 NFL Draft, Griffin had previously been arrested and charged with breach of the peace after a Fourth of July party in Massachusetts.
