Tackle the issue

-- Though not arrested, Buccaneers OT Jeremy Trueblood has become the latest NFL Player to have a brush with the long arm of the law. Trueblood and an associate were taken into custody on suspicion of being drunk and disorderly and for public intoxication, after a local convenience store clerk called police reporting that Trueblood and his friend had entered the store and allegedly knocked goods off of counters and nearly knocked over a mother holding a small child. The two then got into a car driven by Truebloods mother, and it was later in the night that the car was followed and stopped. Trueblood had been golfing with friends and called his mother to give him a ride, an action that was praised and largely responsible for him not being charged. -- News from the New Yorks Jets now, and various sources claim D'Brickashaw Ferguson has put pen to paper on an extension deal potentially worth $60 million over six years, with approximately $34-35 million in guaranteed cash. With a year left on his old deal, plus an option, Ferguson is still set to make around $13 million before his new deal kicks in. But he's not the only man in green and white who has signed on the dotted line this week. Second round draft pick Vladimir Ducasse has signed his rookie contract, a four year deal that will pay the O-lineman around $3 million. Ducasse is likely to see playing time this year at the guard position, replacing Alan Faneca who is now with the Arizona Cardinals. Have a great day everyone.
