Philadelphia Eagles cornerback Jalen Mills could find himself in some trouble soon.
Typically, the Dallas Cowboys are the bad boys of the NFC East as they deal with a ton of off-field incidents within their organization. This time though, it sounds like one of the Philadelphia Eagles own could land in some hot water. Recently, Devin Robinson of the NBA’s Washington Wizards has been detained after a fist-fight outside of a club, which forced the organization to take action.
Why does this relate to the Eagles? Well apparently, the fist-fight involved Philadelphia Eagles cornerback, Jalen Mills. The Wizards put out a statement on Saturday afternoon regarding Robinson’s incident. In their report, they mentioned that his actions would lead them to the decision not to extend him further than this season.
Once that statement was released, The Washington Post’s Candace Buckner reported that the fight involved Jalen Mills on the other end. There haven’t been any reports outside of Buckner’s original details via The Post, but she has stated that more information will be released over time.
The Initial Report
So far, the Eagles haven’t released any information regarding the incident involving Mills as well. NBC Sports’ John Clark has reported that Mills’ involvement did lead to citing, and he was charged with disorderly conduct. Now, we anticipate a statement from the Eagles’ organization regarding Mills involvement. Chances are, the Eagles will wait for more details to surface before making any sudden changes to the roster regarding a release.
The situation could get tricky, however. We’ve seen the Eagles release players quickly after landing in some trouble (Daryl Worley, Josh Huff). But we’ve also seen the Eagles get patient and not make any sudden moves until further details came out, like situations with Nigel Bradham and Michael Bennett. We’ll see how they handle this situation for Mills.
