The Facts: Following up on the ongoing story. ... Guice, officially released by Washington on Saturday, officially is out of the NFL. At least for now. Possibly for good. Guice cleared waivers, making the 2018 second-round pick a free agent.
Diehards Line: Washington released Guice after he was arrested on multiple domestic-violence allegations, including a felony count of strangulation. Any team that signs Guice would risk seeing him placed on the Commissioner Exempt list, requiring the team to pay him while the charges are resolved. For that reason, there’s a good chance Guice will not be in the NFL until the criminal case ends and the NFL imposes discipline, if any, on him.
