dont be so quick to assume he is gone.
AP got caught too and there were clear pictures of a little boy with a torn open scrotum....AP was retained and remains a revered Viking.
Of Course, this player is no super star so by the twisted values of populist culture, he will likely be disposed of.
I would add the the climate and public reaction towards this sort of thing has become more vitriolic since 2014 when AD was suspended. It' simply not tolerated no matter who you are and shouldn't be.

AP wasn't arrested and formally charged with FELONY domestic violence with 100k bail.

This dumb kid is gone. Never playing in purple again. Probably never in the NFL again.

The pictures of the chicks neck are insane...... you would have to choke someone so hard to make it that purple.

Yeah this will be a Ray Rice scenario IMO.

Well, it looks like Vikings will be drafting another cornerback but I hope Gladney is found guilty and stays in jail where he belongs

Vikings only retained because Adrian is a superstar which Gladney is not

Sorry, it's posts like these that continue to hold these guys on a pedestal. Domestic abuse is a national problem. Expecting these guys to be free from it and then attributing it to them being catered to their whole life is problematic. They are abusive because they are abusive. Nothing more. Plenty of guys in the league have been catered to and don't have this problem. Plenty of men in the "real world" are abusive w/o being catered to. After all LEO have the highest % of domestic abuse issues of any professions and plenty of people still "back the Blue"
Wrong, This happens to be a field I work in, Child Abuse/HealthCare. The incidence of domestic violence is higher in many fields, folks who wok in law enforcement, military, contact sports, etc do have higher rates. It is understandable due to many factors. Police officers are subject to horrible stressors, military training by its nature conditions certain responses and can expose folks to damaging stressors. Ignoring these risk factors helps perpetuate the problem. Ignoring their acts and putting them on a pedestal is even worse.
So what was wrong about my statement?

Have you people not seen the pictures? The police have charged him with a Felony with a 100k bail. He is in deep #### and will never play for the Vikings again.
Hadn't seen any pics of the young lady but I knew his bond was $100k. Frankly I don't expect him back. Having said that do any of our local capologists know how this would affect our cap number if he is booted from the league?
I'm not an expert but I heard the Vikings can request his signing bonus back. At least the 3/4ths that hasn't technically been earned. I think it's under the basis of conduct detrimental to the team or something similar.

These guys never learn, just grabbed a couple of his cards, his career is over my guess.
