Sometimes there is just some news that fans do not like to hear, but this may be something that fits that description.
Eagles cornerback Jalen Mills, who was the top corner on the roster for half of the Eagles Super Bowl winning season, reportedly got into a fight with Washington Wizards basketball player Devin Robinson, according to a report from Candace Buckner of The Washington Post.
Ian Rapoport of ESPN noted that the Eagles are aware of the issue and will continue to gather information on the incident.
Les Bowen of the Philadelphia Inquirer is reporting that the dispute may have been due to Robinson apparently taking offense to someone who doesn’t play for a Washington sports team in the club.
Source with knowledge of situation says altercation between Eagles’ Jalen Mills and Wizards’ Devin Robinson arose over Robinson feeling that Mills shouldn’t be in DC, since he doesn’t play for a Washington team.— Les Bowen (@LesBowen) April 13, 2019
Reckon that that thar town ain’t big enough fer the both of them ...
To make the argument more amusing for Philadelphia fans, the Wizards have dropped Robinson because of the altercation and subsequent arrest, meaning he is no longer allowed in the clubs according to his own logic.
Both Mills and Robinson were cited and Robinson was sent to the hospital. No punishment from the team or the NFL has been announced, but that could change as more evidence is uncovered.
Mills is in the final year of his rookie deal.
