Former Cleveland Browns quarterback and announcer Bernie Kosar has resolved the dunk driving charges that were filed against him earlier in 2013 and has pleaded no contest. Doing so has allowed the Browns legend to accept lesser charges but the timing of the story is not ideal.
Kosar had been charged with drunken-driving in September, but on Monday he entered a plea to reckless operation and received a fine and suspended jail sentence.
Kosar was recently let go by the Browns preseason broadcast team, a move he blamed on head injuries. He blamed football injuries for his failed sobriety test as well, saying knee and ankle surgeries he had just had were to blame for his unbalanced nature.
But the story here is the deterioration of Kosar, something that has been tragic for everyone to watch. With head injuries in the game the biggest issue the league has ever faced, seeing Kosar wither away to the point where he say it affected his job with the broadcast team is a sad sight to see.
It’s been a rough year for Kosar but there’s still hope that he can bounce back and hopeful return to as close to normal as his injuries will allow.
