Number two blues

By MATT TAIBBI  |  April 1, 2010

The Dolphins are, ever so slowly, beginning to show up on the sports-crime radar. A few weeks back, tight end Tony McDaniel was arrested on domestic-violence charges. Not long after that, cornerback Will Allen got charged with a DUI.

In between the arrests of these three players, nose tackle Jason Ferguson got hit with a league suspension — a hefty one, eight games — reportedly for using performance-enhancing drugs.

Give Brown our standard 25 points for DUI, and keep an eye on the Dolphins.
