Sure, we’ve heard a lot about Ben Roethlisberger, Lawrence Taylor, Michael Vick et al, but what about the times that an NFL does something extraordinary that has positive consequences? Where’s the mass media coverage on that?
Here’s one step in that direction:
TMZ has obtained the recording of a dramatic 911 call made by Cleveland Browns lineman Shaun Rogers … in which he helps local police safely arrest an allegedly super-drunk driver who was driving like a maniac.
Rogers made the call around 11:08 PM on July 15 — warning that he was following a car that was swerving all over Interstate 71 … and had blown a tire after smashing into the center divider.
During the call, Rogers directs law enforcement to his exact location — and when the perp’s car came to a stop in the middle of traffic, Rogers pulled up behind the other ride and activated his emergency lights to prevent a collision.
The suspect was eventually arrested on suspicion of DUI after blowing “extremely high” on a breath test.
Rogers was hailed as a hero by the local chief of police — who sent the NFL star this letter to show his appreciation.
