It has been a tumultuous two weeks for Houston Texans linebacker Brian Cushing. Not only has a failed steroid test surfaced, resulting in Cushing being hit with a four-game suspension, but new developments hit the news wire today.

The Associated Press will hold a re-vote to determine a new rookie of the year although Cushing will still be on the ballot. But with this new controversy coming to light, Brian Cushing will probably be considered a waste of space.

It's kind of funny though that another former Trojan gets in trouble. First it's Reggie Bush, then Matt Leinart who never got in any major trouble but still is trying to find his place in the NFL, and in the NBA Grizzlies Shooting Guard O.J Mayo, Rey Maualuga and the infamous O.J. Simpson went so far as to rob a hotel room and possibly kill his wife.

Bottom Line: Brian Cushing joins a long line of infamous former USC Trojans and because of this recent steroid controversy, Cushing should not even be considered for the Rookie of the Year Award.
