The Dallas Cowboys finally got some good news following the entire Lucky Whitehead drama that has surrounded the team this week. Rookie cornerback Jourdan Lewis was acquitted on charges stemming from an incident with his former girlfriend while he was playing college football at Michigan.
“Jourdan Lewis has been found not guilty on both domestic violence and assault and battery counts,” ESPN’s Michael Rothstein reported on Tuesday.
Lewis allegedly dragged his then girlfriend by the hair, grabbing her neck and holding her down in the process. It led to Lewis seeing his draft stock plummet to the Cowboys in the third round of this year’s draft.
Now that Lewis has been exonerated in a court of law, he can focus on getting rolling during his first training camp in the NFL. Then again, the league itself works by a different set of rules. It’s in this that Lewis still faces disciplinary action from the NFL. At the very least, his legal troubles appear to be behind him.
