Ominously vague news from Ferentz's presser today:
Q: Is Cedric Everson in good standing?
FERENTZ: Well, that's pretty much about where he was Saturday, I guess. That's probably the best answer I could give you. He wasn't with us Saturday. Things haven't changed an awful lot.
Q: Is he practicing?
FERENTZ: No, huh uh. Didn't last week. I guess Thursday would have been his last day. He's not in good standing.
Q: Is he off the team?
FERENTZ: He's not in good standing.
This is, of course, terrible news. We have a long-standing appreciation for The Entertainer, and to hear things like "Thursday would have been his last day" on top of lurid rumors that--as much as I'm sure you've all heard them--we're not going to repeat, is troublesome. We hope nothing but the best for the young man, but he'll be awfully lucky if his head's not on a pike by the side of Hawkins Drive by Saturday.
