Meriweather Found Guilty of DUI

Today, Washington Redskins safety Brandon Meriweather has been officially found guilty of DUI. This dates back to an incident that occurred this past April. He has been given a suspended 180 day in jail sentence with a $300 fine.

Meriweather signed a 2-year contract with the Redskins this offseason and is expected to compete for a starting safety spot. Meriweather was inconsistent in his time with the Patriots and the Bears, but has the potential to be a starting safety in the NFL.

In terms of what disciplinary action Roger Goodell might take, this is Meriweathers first offense. I don't expect Goodell to discipline him past what the court has already done.

Redskins Head Coach Mike Shannahan has yet to say what exactly his course of action will be for Meriweather.
