Jeremy Lane Arrested On DUI Charge

Published

on

Seattle Seahawks cornerback Jeremy Lane was arrested early Sunday morning for driving under the influence near Seattle.

According to Brady Henderson of ESPN, Lane was heading eastbound on Interstate 90 near Mercer Island when he was pulled over.

Lane, 27, has spent his entire 6-year career with the Seahawks, starting 21 games for the team. He has two years remaining on a 4-year, $23 million contract through the 2019 season.

This news also comes after a tumultuous 2017 season for Lane, as he was benched twice and only started six games. He was almost traded to Houston for offensive lineman Duane Brown, but a failed physical prevented that from happening. In the end, the Seahawks ended up getting Duane Brown from Houston and retained Lane for the remainder of the 2017 season.

Jeremy Lane also tweeted this morning, “Why ppl judge you by what they hear ? but not what they know !!” and that his BAC at the time was 0.03%, which is below the legal limit of 0.08%.

This news comes only days after fellow cornerback DeShawn Shead said (h/t Instagram) that he would become an unrestricted free agent.

With the uncertainty of defensive coordinator Kris Richard’s job status, Kam Chancellor and Richard Sherman’s injuries, the Seahawks could be looking at quite a defensive rebuild heading into the 2018 season.<!– 1516043788595 –>

The Detroit Lions have re-signed cornerback DeShawn Shead, who was cut during final roster trim downs, according to a team announcement.

Shead will provide some depth in the wake of starting cornerback Darius Slay’s concussion.

Shead was a full-time starter during the 2016 season for the Seattle Seahawks, but a knee injury he suffered during a playoff game against the Atlanta Falcons knocked his career off track for a while.

The Minnesota Vikings released veteran defensive lineman David Parry, according to an official team announcement.

Parry’s release opens up an available roster spot for newly signed veteran defensive tackle Tom Johnson, who was recently released by the Seattle Seahawks.

Parry played in both of the Vikings’ regular season games this season, recording 1 sack along the way. It is likely that Parry will latch on to a team seeking depth along the interior of their defensive line during his stint in free agency.
