Just one day after recent free agent signing Ray McDonald was cut following his arrest for yet another domestic violence charge, the team announced it will no longer employ terrible human beings.
“We thought Ray had solved all his problems after his heart-to-heart with [owner and chairman] George McCaskey. We even interviewed his family and they all said he was a good dude,” said Bears GM Ryan Pace. “Turns out we have to dig a little harder in situations like this. If you can’t trust people who stand to benefit greatly from something you’re asking them about, who can you trust?”
The Bears’ “no terrible human beings” initiative comes as a bold move in the NFL where domestic violence has been a focal point ever since the league bungled the Ray Rice domestic violence situation nearly a year ago.
“There’s just no room for this sort of individual on our roster,” said Pace. “Issues like what we experienced this weekend are extremely embarrassing for us and if there’s one thing we can’t tolerate, it’s situations that embarrass us.”
Added Pace: “Oh, and employing men with repeated incidents of violence against women and children. That’s another thing I suppose we can’t tolerate.”
