Police: Dolphins' Brown charged with DUI after late-night arrest



ATLANTA -- Miami Dolphins running back Ronnie Brown, who had been in the suburban Atlanta area to help celebrate his parents' anniversary, was arrested on a charge of driving under the influence of alcohol and released from jail a few hours later, officials said Monday.

Brown, 28, was arrested at 4:29 a.m. Saturday, Marietta Police Officer Jennifer Murphy said. Marietta is located about 15 miles northwest of Atlanta.

Brown's mother, Joyce Brown, told The Associated Press in a telephone interview Monday that her son was visiting his hometown of Cartersville for her and her husband's 32nd anniversary. She said he had eaten dinner with relatives and then went to a club. She didn't know the name of the club, but the night wasn't part of the anniversary celebration.

She said her son was pulled over for failing to use a turn signal, but she believes he was targeted because he was driving a high-priced car and is black.

Blog Blitz: Dolphins
Brown's mother said she believes both police and the media unfairly single out football players.

"Just because of who they are, they shouldn't be pinpointed," Brown said. "They're still people, too."

Murphy wouldn't provide details of the arrest, and the AP has filed an open-records request for the information. Officials at the Smyrna City Jail say Brown posted $1,110 bond and was released hours after his arrest. Cartersville is located about 20 miles from Marietta.

Brown's agent, Todd France, didn't immediately return phone and e-mail messages seeking comment. A team spokesman had no comment on the arrest. Brown's mother said her son had an attorney, but she wouldn't give a name.

Dolphins owner Stephen Ross, who is attending the NFL Annual Meeting in Orlando, Fla., said the organization is unhappy about the recent spate of arrests of its players. Cornerback Will Allen was charged with driving under the influence in Miami Beach, and defensive tackle Tony McDaniel was accused of domestic violence at his home in Davie, both last month.

"It certainly doesn't make us happy, and it is a concern," Ross said without specifically talking about Brown. "I think the coaches and (Dolphins football czar) Bill Parcells are disappointed and concerned, and they are addressing it."

Brown's 2009 season ended early with an injury to his right foot. He was the Dolphins' leading rusher at the time and was the key player in their Wildcat formation before being placed on injured reserve Nov. 18.

Brown had 648 yards on 147 carries and eight touchdowns last season before he was injured. He has 4,081 rushing yards and 31 touchdowns in his five-year NFL career.

There wouldn't have been a problem if he wasn't driving while intoxicated. Maybe she should be more worried about her son driving after partying.

ORLANDO, Fla. -- The New York Jets have scheduled a news conference for noon Thursday at their facility in Florham Park, N.J., for a "major media announcement."

The belief here at the NFL owners meetings is that the Jets will announce they'll be the team featured on this year's edition of "Hard Knocks," the joint venture between HBO and NFL Films that takes viewers inside training camp.

Houston Texans owner Bob McNair told Houston Chronicle writer John McClain their bid to headline the show lost out to another team.

"I think the Jets are going to be on Hard Knocks," McNair said, "but I think they want to work with us about being on another program. So we'll see how it goes."

"Hard Knocks" couldn't have picked a better subject than the Jets, an entertaining team that came one half away from reaching the Super Bowl. Madcap head coach Rex Ryan certainly will be the star.

The Jets also provide several readymade storylines at SUNY Cortland. "Hard Knocks" does its best work when it takes us inside players' and coaches lives. Ryan's struggles with weight loss and his recent lap-band surgery almost certainly will be a subject. New cornerback Antonio Cromartie's paternity issues would be fascinating to explore.

The Jets offer plenty of football angles, too: Hotshot quarterback Mark Sanchez trying to become a franchise quarterback, running back LaDainian Tomlinson trying to reclaim lost glory, receiver Braylon Edwards trying to catch a football, pass-rusher Vernon Gholston trying to get on the field.

"Hard Knocks" debuted with the Baltimore Ravens in 2001, when Ryan was on their defensive staff. The show highlighted the Dallas Cowboys in 2002, then vanished until it resumed with the Kansas City Chiefs in 2007. The Cowboys were featured in 2008 and the Cincinnati Bengals last year.

Bears' Brown, Seahawks' Sims could trade places

http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com...-trade-places/

Posted by Michael David Smith on March 27, 2010 7:27 PM ET

We've previously noted that the Chicago Bears are shopping defensive end Alex Brown and that the Seattle Seahawks aren't likely to keep restricted free agent guard Rob Sims. Now there's a report that the two could be trading places.

Dan Pompei of the Chicago Tribune reports, citing an unnamed league source, that Brown could be traded for Sims.

Per Pompei, Sims is not a great fit the zone blocking scheme the new coaching staff in Seattle is installing, but is the kind of lineman new Bears offensive line coach Mike Tice likes. Sims, who started 14 games in Seattle last year, was a fourth-round pick of then-Seahawks General Manager Tim Ruskell in 2006. Ruskell is expected to join the Bears' front office this year.

Brown seems to be the odd man out in Chicago now that the Bears have acquired defensive end Julius Peppers. The Seahawks could use him after trading defensive end Darryl Tapp to the Eagles.

When Tapp was traded, he first signed his tender with the Seahawks and then reached a new deal with the Eagles. A similar arrangement would make sense with Sims and the Bears.

Simms sounds like a guy who would make a good fit for our Power run game and it would only take a 4th to get him. I heard he has a large cap # though.

I would be afraid of what I'd do if I were a single, rich athlete hanging out at the Playboy Mansion for a multiple day celebration.

Wouldn't you be doing the same thing if you were single and could get in there? I don't know if Welker is single or not or if it matters to him but good for him nailing some snatch.

The Eagles officially announced they have traded cornerback Sheldon Brown and linebacker Chris Gocong to the Browns for linebacker Alex Hall, a fourth-round pick (No. 105), and a fifth-round pick (No.137) in the 2010 draft.

Flozell Adams and Ken Hamline to be released Friday

http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com...leased-friday/

Posted by Gregg Rosenthal on April 2, 2010 12:38 PM ET

Flozell the Hotel is closing in Dallas.

Todd Archer of the Dallas Morning News reports that the Cowboys will release the five-time Pro Bowl tackle Friday. Safety Ken Hamlin will also be released, according to Hamlin's Twitter account.

Hamlin made the Pro Bowl team in 2007, but has been a huge disappointment since signing a big contract after that season. His missed tackles and poor angles led to a ton of long touchdowns against the Cowboys.

Redskins pick up Willie Parker

http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com...willie-parker/

Posted by Michael David Smith on April 2, 2010 3:14 PM ET

The Washington Redskins are about to add another running back to their already crowded backfield.

Adam Schefter of ESPN is reporting that the Redskins reached an agreement with free agent running back Willie Parker. According to Schefter, it's a one-year contract with a maximum value of $3.1 million.

The Redskins already had Clinton Portis, and in March they added Larry Johnson. Now they have three running backs who have been among the best in the league in the past, but who appear to have lost a step.

Although Redskins coach Mike Shanahan has suggested that he expects Portis to keep the starting job, Schefter reports that Parker has been told there will be an open competition for the starting job.

Ricky Williams gives back

http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com...ms-gives-back/

Posted by Michael David Smith on April 3, 2010 10:16 AM ET

Miami Dolphins running back Ricky Williams celebrated Good Friday by giving away more than 300 Easter dinners to needy South Florida families, saying his effort was part of a broader realization, toward the end of his NFL career, that he wants to make positive contributions to society off the football field.

"There should be some benefit to us being here, besides entertainment and playing football,'' Williams said. "We all make pretty good money, so I think, especially in hard economic times, we should have more of a presence.''

Williams was joined by volunteers including several of his teammates as well as his new agent, Drew Rosenhaus. As we've previously noted and the Miami Herald points out, the hiring of Rosenhaus was a strong signal that Williams doesn't plan on the 2010 season being his last.

But even as he prepares for a future in football, he's also expanding his focus beyond football.

"I do want to make my presence felt -- more than just on the football field," Williams told the Sun-Sentinel. "I wasn't sure about doing a big production like this, but when I realized how much help I could get by doing it like this, I jumped on it."
