R. Jay Soward
Give credit to R. Jay Soward for creating controversies in two different professional football leagues in North America. The Jacksonville Jaguars selected Soward with the 29th pick in the 2000 NFL Draft, and must have done absolutely no research into his past, because Soward’s lackadaisical approach to football completely clashed with Tom Coughlin’s no-nonsense, disciplinarian ways.
On top of habitually being late to meetings and practices, Soward was eventually suspended under the NFL’s substance abuse policy, then by Coughlin for violating team rules, and then again under the league’s substance abuse policy. Simply put, by 2003, he was out of the NFL.
