NFL: Roger Goodell To Block Any Ausar Walcott Signing

Jul 4 2013, 7:35pm CDT | by

NFL commissioner Roger Goodell declared he will not approve any team's attempt to sign former Cleveland Browns linebacker Ausar Walcott until a hearing is conducted to determine any action needed to be taken under the Personal Conduct Policy.

NFL commissioner Roger Goodell says he will not approve any team's attempt to sign former Cleveland Browns linebacker Ausar Walcott

This was reported by Fox Sports' Mike Garafolo on July 3, citing Walcott's charges which include first-degree attempted murder, second-degree aggravated assault and third-degree endangering an injured victim

Goodell said he won't approve the signing of Walcott until he "conducts a hearing and determines any appropriate discipline under the Personal Conduct Policy."

Police reports indicate Walcott allegedly punched a man by the name of Derrick Jones in the head on Sunday, June 23. The blow was said to be on Jones' head with the incident taking place outside of the Palace Gentleman's Club in Passaic, N.J. The punch was powerful enough to put Jones in critical condition. Walcott was promptly arrested and placed on $500,000 bail.  

Walcott, an undrafted free agent out of the University of Virginia, was released by the Browns upon learning of the incident. He was also arrestedin January 2011 after he got into a fight while at Virginia. He was reportedly charged with assault and battery, per ESPN.  

Darin Gantt of NBC Sports writes the only way for Walcott to have a shot at playing in the NFL again is if he's declared innocent. Even if he is, a prior charge of attempted murder may be more than enough for teams to have second thoughts about signing him. 

Walcott played in 45 games for the Virgina Cavaliers amassing 128 career tackles, 1.5 sacks, four passes defensed and one fumble recovery.
