Former NFL quarterback Jon Kitna recalled on "The Ryen Russillo Podcast" this week the time he played with a drunk wide receiver. According to Kitna, while he was on the Bengals, a wide receiver he says struggled with alcohol racked up almost 200 yards in a game under the influence.
From TMZ Sports:
That's ex-NFL quarterback Jon Kitna claiming a WR for the Cincinnati Bengals was hammered during a game ... and still managed to rack up nearly 200 yards receiving.
Kitna spelled out the situation while appearing on the "The Ryen Russillo Podcast" earlier this week ... describing an unnamed Bengals teammate who was clearly struggling with alcohol.
"He was drunk and had close to 200 yards receiving now. So, it was crazy."Kitna -- who played for the Bengals from 2001 to 2005 -- didn't reveal WHEN the incident took place ... but suggested the boozy game was not uncommon for that particular player.
"That was kind of his normal."

These are the kinds of stories that the NFL was built on. A bunch of drunk guys destroying themselves on the gridiron, recharging at halftime with a cigarette and a cold one. Ahh the glory days. I'm really happy to hear there are dudes still getting smashed before games and kicking ass.
