    I would blame these offenses on them being young and immature, but Hines had a DUI last year too. Tough to know the FO's line or justification for players being released. It is a little hazy. I don't want to be the Pittsburgh choir boys but I don't want concertina wire scars under their jerseys either.

    I wonder if Rainey fumbled his phone and his gf was just getting it for him?

    Chris Rainey cut for disciplinary reasons, not football reasons

    Posted by Michael David Smith on July 28, 2014, 9:35 AM EDT

    For the second time in his brief NFL career, running back Chris Rainey has been cut for off-field reasons.

    Rainey was cut by the Colts today for violating team rules, Adam Schefter ‏of ESPN reports. Stephen Holder of the Indianapolis Star adds that the release is conduct related and that head coach Chuck Pagano plans to provide more details.

    What’s clear is that the decision was not about Rainey’s performance on the football field at training camp, which is consistent with what Pagano has been saying about Rainey: Pagano raved over the weekend about how much he likes Rainey, and when running back Vick Ballard was lost for the season with a knee injury, it appeared that Rainey would play an important role on the team as a backup running back as well as a kick returner.

    Instead, Rainey has been released for something he did off the field. We don’t know exactly what that “something” was, but we do know that this has happened to Rainey before: The Steelers cut him shortly after his rookie year ended following an arrest on a charge of battery against his girlfriend. Now that Rainey has blown his second chance with the Colts, he’ll have to hope some team is willing to give him a third chance.
