"He was driving 40 in a 25 and was released after a Slightly Impaired DUI stop".

I am no legal expert by any stretch of the imagination, but this sounds like an issue of speeding, with a low BAC when tested for alcohol. This should be enough to get him off of any possible DUI charges, but maybe enough to get him back in jail. From what I read in the past, most jurisdictions can still charge a person with DUI even when that person is under the .08 threshold. Probably only matters in the sense of legal terms for Tank, more jail time or not. Either way, I would bet he gets his suspension from the NFL extended to include the entire 2007 season.

The Saints should not even think about signing this guy. What a dork...

Here is what one fan wrote.....

"He was arrested for owning enough guns and ammo to equip a Tank. The Bears Tanked in the Super Bowl. He served 60 days in the Tank and ate enough junk food to fill a Tanker. He was Tanked for eight games by new Commish, and then got pulled over for being slightly Tanked. Now he's been cut, and he's left holding his Johnson. I'd say they gave this guy the perfect name."

Tank!

After a nights sleep on it... GO GET HIM!!!

I agree with ESPN that in a couple of weeks he'll start generating interests and he will be signed by someone. They even mentioned "a team like New Orleans".

He'll miss 8 weeks with the suspension but but he'll be there for the last leg of the seasona and our SB run.

Only if he's cheap and has a 0 tolerance policy that voids his contract if he continues his John Sullivan behavior. Even then, I'd make him a backup unitl he proves he is worth it. We have Clancy, Thomas, and Young who are solid DTs plus the rotation guys. He'll probably get a big contract from Dallas or the Raiders.

BTW, is Brooks on anyone's roster?

All it takes is one player with a history of run-ins with the law to spark a team's downward spiral. Maybe a couple of players like him, want to start hanging out with him, soon, a few more, then the inevitable happens and that player does something else to get in trouble and the team releases him. Now his 'friends' ,who have grown to like him and buy in to the BS he spouts, take an attitude with the powers that be. Shortly thereafter you have a divided locker room and all the hard work that was put into building a championship caliber team is suddenly teetering on becoming a Bengals team. You may say this view is extreme but I say, after all the years of seeing what used to be in our locker room, do you really want to chance it? Taking a chance with a borderline player when we know we can make a Superbowl run with what we have?

The 8 week suspension was for the first infraction, this one may bring even more on. He is on probation and will most likely serve more time due his behavior. Also, the Saints have shown little tolerance for this type behavior...look at Kuale and how fast they jetisoned him (knowing full well Kuale does not possess the skills of Tank).

I say pass and look at Walker from the Bills.

Sign Tank Johnson, with Roger Goodell running this ship like 'Dirty Harry', what are the chances if the Saints were to sign Tank "Cover Me!!!" Johnson, they would wind up losing day 1 draft picks, or the other penalties that may affect the Saints?

DON'T DO IT, LOOMIS!!!!
