Woes for Patriots RBs (past or present) carrying over to off-the-field now

By Paul M. Banks

It was a very bad year to be a New England Patriots running back last season. The Pats’ “starter” Laurence Maroney (a 2006 1st-rounder out of Minnesota) was benched and presumable sent to Siberia after fumbling near the goal line the Jaguars. They may need to find a new man to carry the rock in the 2010 NFL Draft, which begins tomorrow night. And adversity is now spilling over to off-the-field, and affecting retired Patriots running backs.


Retired NFL star Corey Dillon is having a seriously bad month — he was busted for DUI this morning, and TMZ has learned his wife just filed for divorce.

Desiree Dillon filed a petition for divorce earlier this month in L.A. County Superior Court, citing irreconcilable differences.

Now I know what you’re thinking: “when you meet a girl named Desiree, typically she’s more the kind of girl you give lots of singles to in a club around 3 a.m. than she is the kind of girl you want to marry.” What can I say? I guess Corey was never able to find a stable, wholesome woman named Krystal, Raven, Tiffany, or Lindsey to settle down with!
