Last week All-SEC safety Janzen Jackson withdrew from the University of Tennessee to deal with “very personal issues.” Now fellow starting safety Brent Brewer has been suspended from the Vol team after being arrested over the weekend.
Good thing Derek Dooley lined up so many defensive backs on signing day.
Brewer — a sophomore Dooley converted from a baseball player to a starting footballer — was released on $1500 bond Sunday after a domestic assault charge had been filed agaisnt him.
“Without knowing all the facts, any domestic incident warrants a suspension from all team-related activities until a thorough investigation is concluded,” Dooley said via statement. “We respect everyone’s right to the legal process, but also acknowledge a greater standard of conduct associated with the privilege of being a member of the Tennessee football team.”
Whether Brewer will receive a second chance like Jackson (who’s actually received more than two) remains to be seen.
