As far as bringing in players with off-the-field issues, yes. Bring in LJ with major issues and little upside, then scoff at a potential franchise QB because of a misdemeanor charge?

One thing your comparison does show is, if Shanahan thinks that Mallett is HIS QB, then the media reports with no serious incidents reported, will not scare Shanahan away.

Citing a source “extremely close to the Washington Redskins,” NFL Network’s Michael Lombardi reported on Path to the Draft Monday evening that Mike Shanahan’s club has legitimate first-round interest in Arkansas quarterback Ryan Mallett.

I wonder if ChiefHog was that source. He knew this way back in January. :)

but in our opinion, he’s not going to be a Redskin. Shanahan might be intrigued by Mallett’s big arm, but he wouldn’t fit the head coach’s decades-long track record with athletic passers

I would not be bothered in the least by having Mallett on the roster.

Bonehead move

Arkansas quarterback Ryan Mallett did not show up for a meeting with the Carolina Panthers earlier this month during an official pre-draft visit to Charlotte, N.C.

Mallett met team officials for dinner April 8, the day he arrived in town, but meetings the next day at Bank of America Stadium were cancelled after Mallett called and said he was sick, multiple sources told the National Football Post.

Complicating the matter is the fact sources said Mallett was seen out on the town late following the dinner. Off-field questions have followed Mallett every step of the process since he announced he was leaving school in January with eligibility remaining.

Two sides to every story...

Arkansas quarterback Ryan Mallett did not keep his appointment for a meeting with the Carolina Panthers earlier this month during an official pre-draft visit in Charlotte, according to NationalFootballPost.com, which cited unnamed sources.

Mallett and Panthers officials met for dinner on April 8. Mallet was supposed to meet with the team the following day, but reportedly called and said he was sick. What makes the matter murky is that sources said Mallett was seen out on the town after having dinner with the team

A source with the Panthers would not confirm or deny the story to the Sporting News.

J.R. Carroll, an agent representing Mallett, told ESPN that "Ryan was in his hotel room by about 10 o'clock.”

Mallett did meet with Panthers offensive coordinator Rob Chudzinski the next morning, Carroll told ESPN, but that his client was genuinely ill and missed a meeting planned for later in the day.

“I'm pretty sure Ryan was really, really sick,” Carroll was quoted as saying. “He told me he was sick the night before. And I know Ryan wasn't out late night. I know that for sure. He's not an idiot."
