National Football League teams reportedly knew about Christian Kirk arrest before draft

According to TMZ Sports, the officer wrote the following in the police report: "I further noticed the grinding movement of his jaw and continued blank stare".

And while the Cardinals were aware of an arrest of Texas A&M star receiver Christian Kirk, their second-round pick, they still drafted him.

Kirk - a 2nd round draft pick by the AZ Cardinals - was arrested for criminal damage to a vehicle on February 3 after cops say he was throwing rocks at cars in a parking lot outside of the Phoenix Open. "As they were walking through a parking lot, (they were observed) throwing rocks at cars and breaking a window of at least one of them".

Azcentral.com quoted a Cardinals spokesman as saying that team officials spoke to Kirk at length about the incident and it is the team's understanding that the matter "will be resolved in the near future".


"Getting that call was the best feeling in the world", Kirk said earlier this month about getting drafted by the team he rooted for growing up.

"We did our own independent research on it, and we felt very good about the information we received", Wilks said.

If that's not bad enough, TMZ adds that Kirk was high on cocaine at the time of the arrest. That is what I would be interested to know, and I'm sure we won't get an answer.

Kirk, a dynamic receiver and return man for the Aggies, was viewed as a potential first rounder ahead of the NFL Draft. "We're not going to worry about getting a phone call in the middle of the morning that someone out in Scottsdale is doing something insane".
