Darren McFadden had the need for speed, as the ex-Razorback raced to a 4.27 in the 40-yard dash at the NFL Combine on Sunday. How was he able to move so fast?
Maybe he was running away from his paternity problems.
The ST. LOUIS POST-DISPATCH reveals that back in January, a woman from Little Rock filed suit against McFadden, alleging the Arkansas RB to be the father of her little girl. But Darren denies he’s the daddy.
McFadden said, “I took a paternity test and it came back negative.” But the baby’s mama wasn’t satisfied, as Darren added, “They wanted me to take another one.”
The kiddie claims add more concerns about McFadden’s character. He had to get surgery for a broken toe following a July 2006 fight. And just last month, he was handcuffed by police outside a Little Rock piano bar after getting agitated around the ivories.
But McFadden isn’t worried about chatting with coaches & club execs about his off-field follies:
“I’ll just answer them and tell them what happened. That’s the only way to deal with it. Because I know if they talked to any of my teammates or any of my old coaches, they’re going to let them know that I have great character.”
And to prove it, hopefully he’ll use some of his signing bonus to get a baby seat for his Cadillac.
