Arizona Cardinals release statement about Christian Kirk's arrest

Christian Kirk

According to azcentral.com, before this spring's draft, Kirk was arrested.at the Waste Management Phoenix Open, of all places.

Kirk and another man were arrested and charged with criminal damage to a vehicle before being released.

Both Kirk and another man were transported to a nearby police station where they were booked and later released. They broke the window of at least one vehicle. "Our understanding is that the process will be resolved in the near future but while it remains an active legal matter, we won't comment further", the franchise said in a statement.

While this is new information to most of us, teams were aware of it, and obviously it didn't really affect his draft stock, since the Arizona Cardinals drafted him in the second round, right about where he was expected to go in the first place.

Cardinals general manager Steve Keim, for example, said after the draft that the team paid special attention to character this year.

"We don't want a bunch of choir boys, I'm not saying that", Wilks said recently. There were no reports of Kirk ever getting into trouble in high school or college.

A three-year starter at Texas A&M, Kirk caught 71 passes for 919 yards and 10 touchdowns in his junior year, while also accumulating close to 700 return yards and two more touchdowns as a kick and punt returner, according to his Sports Reference player page.
