In a story that is very serious, Fred Davis and Trent Williams were suspended for four games for violating the league's substance abuse policy. Jim Trotter of Sports Illustrated reported that the violation was for marijuana, and that if it weren't for the lockout, it would have been the third violation and a year-long suspension. That's bad.
At the same time, it's marijuana, Twitter exists and Davis himself is having a big game against the New York Jets in his 2011 season send-off. You all know what that means. Lots and lots and lots of Fred Davis weed jokes. Here are some of our favorites:
Dan HellIe: Some have said Trent Williams and Fred Davis aren't reliable. I disagree. You can count on them testing positive for weed every year.
Dan Steinberg: That Fred Davis catch was dope
Steinberg, again: Ah, forget it, Fred Davis didn't get enough grass there, that joint's getting overturned
Steinberg, again: Btw, "illegal contact" is also what happens when you enter Fred Davis's home
@macg_og: Fred Davis catch went all Up In Smoke
Hellie, again: I'd run a smoke screen to Fred here
@LL56xtremeskins: Davis like to get high but not that high..bring it down bit rex.
And our personal favorite...
@TheNuttSays: Fred Davis press conference scheduled for 4:20
