PFT has called out Bears GM Jerry Angelo concerning his approach to the Cedric Benson situation.
“The thing that I am most disappointed in is the fact that he put himself in a position to be the victim,” Angelo said Saturday night, per the Daily Herald.
But that doesn’t make much sense: If Angelo thinks Benson is telling the truth, and he was just a law-abiding citizen enjoying an evening on his boat when the police dragged him away and pepper-sprayed him, how is that putting himself in a position to be the victim? And if Angelo thinks Benson isn’t telling the truth, then he shouldn’t view Benson as “the victim” at all.
Until we know exactly how this is going to play out it impossible to make any real judgements, but you get his point.
The real part of this is that Angelo goes on to address the issue of cutting Benson.
There’s no plans to cut him,” he said. “I’m a little surprised it’s an everyday story, but unfortunately it is and he’s having to deal with it. I’m not anticipating any reason why he wouldn’t be [in training camp]. We’ll just let the courts decide what the facts are and we’ll go from there.”
