Former Dallas Cowboys running back Joseph Randle was arrested on an outstanding speeding warrant early Monday morning in Irving, Texas, and new video of the arrest posted Wednesday by TMZ Sports shows the 24-year-old telling police, "This is the end of my career":
Irving Police spokesman James McLellan said Randle was denied entry to the home of his ex-girlfriend and that the mother of the ex-girlfriend proceeded to call police afterward, per the Dallas Morning News' Matt Peterson.
Randle was being held on $359 bail, according to Peterson, but TMZ reported he "has since been released" from police custody.
The arrest marked the fourth for Randle in the past 17 months, according to the Dallas Morning News' Brandon George, and his second since the Cowboys released him in November. Shortly after Dallas cut ties with the embattled running back, he was arrested for his role in an altercation at a Kansas casino.
George also reported new findings regarding Randle's last days with the Cowboys, which included some unbecoming revelations about his off-field activities.
"On Nov. 3, a combination of issues led the Cowboys to release Randle," George wrote. "In addition to showing signs of mental instability, he had been involved in placing wagers on sporting events during the 2015 season, sources said."
Cowboys owner Jerry Jones told reporters there haven't been any signs that Randle bet on NFL games or impacted the outcome of one of Dallas' contests, per George, but he did open up about the process that led to Randle's release.
"All of that became apparent to us right during the season," Jones said at the Senior Bowl, per George. "Not before the season. It became real acute, a combination of things. Some issues...became more apparent."
With Randle's troubles building away from football, it would be unfair to speculate about the running back's potential return to the NFL. Rather, the focus should be on his ability to correct some worrisome habits and remain out of the legal spotlight.
