Houston Texans LB Willie Jefferson was waived for smoking a cigar in the team hotel

Today the Houston Texans released LB Willie Jefferson for smoking a “Cigar” in the team hotel.  The cigar contained nothing but tobacco, but the coaches decided to make the move.

This could be a huge mistake for Coach Gary Kubiak who is now definitely on the hot seat.  I talked with a representative of Willie Jefferson who stated:

“Willie admits to smoking a cigar, and take full responsibility for his actions.  He is quite upset that this happened, and didn’t know it would cause this type of reaction. He apologized to his teammates, and said he couldn’t speak for Cierre and Sam on why they were released.”

If that is the case, what a horrible reason to be waived, I mean half the Texans team dips tobacco.  I guess that is ok, I know Willie will land on a roster very soon.
