Cut troubled Will Allen immediately? [Updated]

Will Allen was arrested early Saturday morning for DUI, according to ProFootballTalk.com. Assuming there isn't another Will Allen roaming South Florida in a Ferrari that is registered to the Dolphins cornerback and the guy in this booking photo isn't just a dead ringer for Allen, this will mark the second incident in which a Dolphins player is arrested this offseason.

Defensive lineman Tony McDaniel was arrested for alleged domestic violence battery on Super Bowl Sunday after an episode with his live-in girlfriend.

[Updated 4:45: The Miami Herald is reporting in this story that Allen had his blood alocohol level tested twice, as per Florida law. He had a level twice the Florida legal limit of .08 on one test and a .152 (just under twice the legal limit) on another test. Allen was booked at 10:14 Saturday morning and held at the Pre-Trial Detention Center. He is still there as of this update.]

And so when I tweeted the news earlier today on my twitter, the reaction I got is that Allen is surely on his way to being cut or terminated by the Dolphins.

My follow-up question to that is, "Why do you think that?"

The fact of the matter is that after Bill Parcells came to Miami and said in his opening and only press conference that he didn't want any "thugs and hoodlums," on the team, the Dolphins have had several players arrested.

And the arrests have never led to those players being immediately cut.

I remind you fullback Reagan Mauia was arrested in 2008 and wasn't immediately cut. He was waived when the team determined his wasn't the best fullback on the roster.

Last year, defensive end Randy Starks was arrested for aggravated assault on a police officer. He was not waived and the issue was later resolved.

Then practice squad cornerback Will Billingsley was arrested in connection with another domestic violence dispute in October. He was not waived immediately. Billingsley remained on the practice squad for several weeks, until the club decided he no longer served a football purpose.

McDaniel, a part-time player who came to Miami from Jacksonville, is still on the roster.

The point?

The Dolphins, under Parcells, do not cut ties with a player based on his legal troubles -- at least not immediately.

Maybe Will Allen eventually outlives his usefulness with the Dolphins based on no longer being a starter and being a player trying to return from a serious knee injury at a position that requires two healthy knees. But will he be cut in the next few hours or days based simply on his recent legal issues?

That hasn't been Miami's history under Bill Parcells, Jeff Ireland and Tony Sparano.

Aloco, I'd put my girl against any blogger on here, whether it be a hot T-Shirt contest or a bikini wearing contest.... She'd take at least Second....

Ace, The barefoot, missing teeth girls in the key's don't count my friend....lol....

She would take SECOND mine would take FIRST.

I know now YOU have NEVER been on my BOAT.lol

But then again Ace that's not saying much, 3/4 of the bloggers have no significant other, and the other 1/4 of them are more then likely with girl's that should be on a leash.... It's like being a winner in a one horse race........LOL

Where do you launch from???? I come don there 2 or 3 times a year and usually charter a boat from Holiday Isle or Whale Harbor....

I'm gathering like minded people together who know how to deal with the likes of certain NFL players who break the law. Our goals are simple: Break the law and we write bad things about you on the internet.

The only qualification for our little group is you must not have ever done anything illegal, immoral or otherwise suspect. Background check is mandatory.

Is it really that bad for you?I will give you a free pass on my charter boat.You need help.And i will help you.

If he blew a .152 he is guilty unless he was not driving. DWIs are easy to convict if he was driving and blew a .152 he is guilty white, black or any other race. Race has nothing to do with it but of course in the USA race plays in every thing.

cuban has a girl friend who has no teeth .bikini my azzzzz

Aloco, Dont you have a meatball sub to make or are you off tonite from Subways????

Cuban,Find me at Whale Harbor.Let me know what day and time you will be there.Time and day is real big with me.And JUNE is the best month.lol

Well do Capt, We only charter a half day(Me and my Pops) It gives us a reason to get away from my mom and girlfriend, and it usually brings us to the gambling boat at holiday inn in key Largo and ends up at the VFW off 87th ave off 168th sreet in palmetto bay... I mean it's almost a Ritual....lol.....

carlito is that you?

F__k u, Troberts 1313, and F__k u too, LipsinsToronto,
Allen got caught with a few too many under his belt. Whoaaaa, what a f__king outlaw!! I am so tired of the media and govt. making DUI the worst crime out there. It's not,but it's a popular one to jump on. Not condoning it, but their argument is how many lives are lost each year as a direct result. It is less than 5% of lives lost as a direct result of tobacco use. So let's crucify you cig smokers out there. Ohhhh, I'll get slammed on that because tobacco addicts love thir cigs. Get off the anti-drinking and quit caving into roadblocks and other govt. intrusions on our orivacy. It's not worth what we give up as to our personal freedom. Once govt. takes a step forward and grabs one of our constitutional rights, they don't give it back.

Agree about constitutional rights being taken away everyday in the name of country safety.BUT nowhere in the constitution does it say we can drive drunk if we so chose.Driving is not a right.AND I DO INDULGE IN THE DEVILS JUICE.

still hardcore must of gotten busted on a D.U.I charge himself and doesn't like it . what a jackazzzzzzz

Maybe allen should have saddled up?NA,he would have gotten busted riding down south beach

Stillhardcore wouldfeel different if it was one of his parents or relatives killed by a DUI driver...Driving is not a RIGHT in this country, it is a privledge and if that means roadblocks and arrests to save lives, I'm 100% for it!!!

upsidedown

Think they should cut allen?

or is he a need?That is the factor

Those things are often overlooked in sports(D.U.I)

I don't advocate anyone losing their job for a mistake but he needs to be treated just like anyother person arrested for driving drunk and not get some "special" I'm an athlete and rich deal

stillhardcoredolphinsfan: Are you retarded?

I never said drinking is a bad thing. Drinking is great. But if you are going to drink, make sure you are not taking control of thousands of pounds of steel and hurling yourself around at 70 or more miles an hour. It is a recipe for disaster and can be avoided. No cab ride is too expensive. You are not gambling with your own life, but with the lives of others..

Also, it seems as though Allen was double the legal limit! So even if he could hold his own, his reaction time would have been shot...

So, if you feel it is your right to drive while drinking, without wearing a seatbelt, without doors, or whatever the hell you want... go rent a race track so that when you run into something, you can exercise your right to die alone.

His mug shot says it all or maybe he is just tired (from drinking all night LOL).

Will Allen provides great depth and veteran leadership. In 2010 he will either be the nickel back, back-up cb, or starting cb if he can beat out one of the young guys in training camp (dont see it happening IMO). The guy is still a good football player, and yes drinking and driving is bad, but should not get you kicked off an NFL team... maybe if it was on a Friday or Sat. before a sunday game, but it is the middle of the offseason for crying out loud! How does this affect the Dolphins??? That is when Tuna gets mad, when a player's legal troubles affect the team...

" He had a level twice the Florida legal limit of .08 on one test and a .152 [on the other]"

Hate to admit but I know more about these BAC levels that I should...he was wasted.

But it's the off season. Major hit on him going forward is for judgment...I assume he had enough for a taxi.

Troberts1313 can't figure out how someone is driving around at 10:00 am drunk!!! LMAO! Have you ever been to Miami? Thats when the clubs let out. NJ, please give us a bwahahahaha

8:00 am leave bar, 9:00 am waffle house, 10:00 am jail...

carlito boyfriend is richard simmons

Carlito, what waffle house gets u seated, served and out in an hour?? I need the address, I'm lucky to get seated and coffee in the first hour

What are you talking about? I haven't been on here all day since this morning... Not really an impersonator either, done it before, not really my thing... I'd rather read and laugh at others that are better/funnier at it than me...
