I get your point, and you're right. But practice squad players only get $5,000 or $6,000 a week and not all play the full 17 weeks of the regular season.
Just parsing things a bit, I know. But they aren't exactly sitting on huge piles of loot.

Right? The team ultimately notified about what happened while on the tarmac. So the idea that a starting d-lineman was out boozing it up with a guy from the scout team just a few hours prior to that is, well...... I was going to say 'surprising', but then I suppose that it shouldn't be a surprise that someone who gets done for DUI twice in the span of a few years was eager to get liquored up a few hours before a team charter.
