Tony Washington could be a very good fit for the lions or any organization for that matter... we all worried about the fact that he is a registered sex offender blah blah blah..the kid was 15 or 16 at the time...young children and teenagers make mistakes..everyone in this country and in this world makes mistakes..includingyou and I...no one is perfect..but what will set you apart is you admitting to your mistakes with sincerity and doing your best to make good and never making that mistake again..how do we learn..mainly from mistakes..when your young.. if you touch a hot stove...you know not to do it again..right..obviously our justice system recognizes that humans will make bad choices...once they pay their dues they should be given a second chance...Ithere have been several multi-million and billion dollar frauds in this country...that have had severe consequences for thousands of people.. company goes bankrupt, employees lose their jobs, retirees lose pensions, investors suffer from loss etc. all because of selfish greedy people who make poor decisions and manipulate financials...and what do you know.. some of those people spend time in jail...then afterwards have a job with the SEC or the FBI..how is that ..because those people are thought to have learned from those mistakes and now they are given a responsibility to help detect and prevent frauds that could ruin others lives as well.. I know you say that may not be on the same level as a sex offender..well child molesters walk the streets everyday..and you may walk by one and not even know it...All am getting at is the fact that this young man has made right..he payed the time made sincere testimonies regarding his actions.he went to a Conservative christian college..If a christian school had the heart to accept him then why cant we or the NFL..this reminds me a lot of Michael Oher situation..although not really the same...a young man who just needed and wanted to be accepted with all the natural talents...I have a feeling that if this guy gets a shot he will be successful and teams will look back and regret ... like others have mentioned if you can run a dog fighting inhumane organization..kill a man even if not at fault... be a druggie.. or whatever and still be in the NFL this guy deserves a chance Too... let me know what you guys think thanks
