Jason LaCanfora of the NFL Network shed some more light on the Seattle Seahawks waiving running back LenDale White this afternoon. According to the report, White is facing a four-game drug suspension. LaCanfora said that the team did know that White had a suspension pending when they made the trade.
However, further pushing the Seahawks to make a move with White is that he had problems making meetings on time, appeared to have a sense of entitlement and was not coachable. According to the report, White didn’t appear committed to the team’s new philosophy preached by new head coach Pete Carroll and general manager John Schneider.
So there you have it. The Seahawks appeared unwilling to deal with the baggage White brought with him from Tennessee, and if anybody should know if White would change his ways, it would be Carroll.
