Fox says Jarrett’s release directly due to the DWI

John Fox is in no mood to have players on his team that A: underperform, and B: get in trouble with the law. Dwayne Jarrett did both, and today he was rewarded with his release after an overnight DWI. Fox appeared on NFL Radio this afternoon, and told the hosts that the DWI was the reason for Jarrett’s release.

Appearing with Pat Kirwan and Tim Ryan of Movin’ the Chains, Fox was blunt. “I think we’ve got a situation here where we do a lot of things for our guys to make sure that doesn’t happen and he couldn’t follow the protocol so we’re going to move on,” Fox said.

“It’s amazing,” Kirwan responded, “and this is about every guy who doesn’t get it. What’s up with these guys, John? It’s like raising kids. You think you get the message across and you come home and it’s still the same problem as the night before.”

“Well, I think anytime, you know, just we’re a part of society and it just gets more publicized, I think, when you’re a star athlete,” Fox said. “But you’re going to have these issues. We’re just a portion of society and, you know, it happens every day, you just don’t hear it as much in other facets of it. It’s part of people that make mistakes. You know, I think, there’s a lot of guys that are doing it right that sometimes we don’t hear quite as much about but unfortunately this is one that he wasn’t doing right.”
