Cowboys release Lucky Whitehead amidst off-field drama

Report: Cowboys WR Lucky Whitehead Arrested For Shoplifting

The Dallas Cowboys released wide receiver/kick returner Lucky Whitehead yesterday after he was arrested in Virginia for shoplifting - an accusation which he adamantly denied.

Whitehead's agent, Dave Rich, contended that his client wasn't in Virginia at the time of the reported arrest. With word coming Tuesday that Whitehead has been exonerated of any wrongdoing due to the police arresting a man who wasn't Whitehead but gave Whitehead's information, the team could rescind the move an keep Whitehead. On June 22nd, Whitehead was reportedly arrested by the Prince William County Police Department in his home state of Virginia. The agent also said Whitehead never appeared in court on July 6 because he never received a citation and summons.

Whitehead failed to notify the team about his incident.

Football star Lucky, aka Rodney Darnell Whitehead, was charged with shoplifting under $200 worth of goods after cops were called to the WAWA by an employee who said a man ran out of the store without paying. I've been broken up with before, and I know what that sounds like.

ESPN reports that team sources indicate the Cowboys weren't interested in hearing Whitehead's explanation and that they simply wanted to release him after yet another incident. Lucky deserved better. Don't we all when are surprised an accusation out of left field?

The apology is too late for Whitehead and his employment with the Cowboys.

While at Cowboys training camp on Monday, Whitehead said "I don't know what's going on", when asked about the larceny charge.

"I mean, I've made probably as many bad decisions as any of these guys have, only being 23, so I'm definitely not one that can point fingers and be mad or be pissed", Prescott said. According to Virginia court records, the 25-year-old has a new arraignment hearing scheduled for August 10 for petit larceny and failure to appear.

If there was a contest for weirdest offseason, Lucky Whitehead is winning it and second place is not even in his rearview mirror. He later tweeted that the dog had been returned safely. He has rushed 20 times for 189 yards and caught nine passes for 64 yards.
