The Denver Broncos front office was hit with a slew of DUIs. Director of player personnel Matt Russell, 40, was arrested July 6 for a DUI in Breckenridge. It was later uncovered that Tom Heckert, 45, was arrested for a DUI on June 11th, but it had never made it to the media.
Now a third Denver Broncos DUI has surfaced, this one before the other two in May of 2013. The Denver Post discovered that offensive lineman Quentin Saulsberry was arrested May 19 for a DUI.
“We have been aware of Quentin Saulsberry’s arrest and will continue to monitor the legal developments related to this matter, which is subject to review under the NFL’s policies,” Broncos spokesperson Patrick Smyth said Monday.
This comes on the heels of the Denver Broncos trying to recover and save face from the two previous DUIs.
“We’re not perfect. We’ve made our errors. We admit it. You can say we apologized for it — but I think an apology rings hollow when you run into the back of a police car or you’re blowing a blood-alcohol limit that’s three times the legal limit. I don’t think fans, I don’t think the public, I don’t think anybody wants to hear an apology,” Denver Broncos President Joe Ellis.
Quentin Saulsberry spend last year on the team’s practice squad and served a 4 game suspension for violating the league’s PED policy. He signed a 1 year contract in January worth $405,000.
