While Johnny Manziel will get ridiculed by ESPN analysts for doing nothing wrong but partying in Vegas for Memorial Day weekend, two Baltimore Ravens who were apparently thrown out of a Ocean City, Maryland beach club for being too drunk do not get any airtime whatsoever.
According to CBS, wide receiver Jacoby Jones and running back Bernard Pierce were allegedly booted from Seacrets beach club for being too drunk and not being able to “maintain their composure,” according to TMZ. Cornerback Jimmy Smith was with them but he wasn’t reportedly asked to leave and allowed to stay.
Both men were compliant while being escorted from the beach club and are able to return at a later date, it certainly is yet another black eye for the Baltimore Ravens in the media. Let’s of course not forget Ray Rice’s atrocious apology last week for allegedly hitting his fiancee back in February.
Apparently, TMZ obtained footage of the three NFL players being escorted off the premises, and you can check out the grainy footage in the video below:
The Ravens are just one more drunken player from a full on PR disaster if they have not already reached that level.
With OTA’s starting this past week, head coach John Harbaugh should probably have a sit down with his team to express what is expected from the players off the field.
This certainly does not look like the team that won the Super Bowl only two years ago. It also looks as if they are desperately missing the leadership of Ray Lewis and Ed Reed as well.
Editor’s Note: Post originally said three players were ejected, but it was in fact two: Pierce and Jones. Smith was with them, but not asked to leave and allowed to stay.
