UPDATE: Cowboys CB was passenger in drive-by murder in Dallas
Late last night, it became known that Dallas PD wanted to interview Cowboys cornerback Kelvin Joseph about his connection to a drive-by shooting back in March. Now, Joseph’s attorney has released a statement stating his client was a passenger in the vehicle but was unarmed and had no knowledge of the intentions of others in the car.
Here’s the full article with statements from the Cowboys organization:
Well, I said I hoped he’d be a witness, and I guess in that way, I was right? Sure, he was a little closer to the action than that, but still.
The team has finally made a statement, which was underwhelming as all hell.
“The Dallas Cowboys are aware of the tragic incident that occurred in Dallas on March 18. First and foremost, our hearts go out to Mr. Ray’s family and loved ones. The organization is aware of Kelvin Joseph’s possible connection to this incident. We are in contact with Dallas law enforcement and have alerted the NFL office. We have no further comment at this time.”
Even with the apology, the Cowboys need to figure their shit out. Based on the organization’s history, that statement was probably a form letter they slightly edited for release.
Until they can stop having players involved with the cops, I reiterate, they must have this outside their facility until then.
