Earlier this week, the UFL — the attempted upstart league that would challenge the NFL (ed. note: Yeah right, never heard that one before) — held its inaugural draft. In the second round, the team from San Francisco drafted a defensive end out of Auburn, Marquies Gunn. Normally, that might not make headlines, except for the fact that Mr. Gunn has a few, how should we say, indiscretions on his record.
(Dude, don’t be so threatened, he just wants to know if you want any cocaine …)
Yes, the aptly named Mr. Gunn is a drug dealer. According to this report from the ASSOCIATED PRESS, Gunn was arrested in February for trying to sell cocaine to an undercover police officer three times across a six month period. Hey, we can at least give him credit for his persistence, right?
There’s no word on whether the San Francisco franchise had any idea Gunn was a cocaine dealer, or whether they even care that he was a coke dealer. Regardless, he’s going to have a tough road ahead of him now that the media’s caught on to his scent.
Of course, he probably already had a tough road ahead of him. After all, he’s playing in the UFL, not the NFL. Last time we checked, no UFL player had ever gone on to make an NFL roster (note: This may be due to the fact that the league has yet to exist. Just a thought). Still, we don’t like Gunn’s odds of becoming the first.
