Alfonzo Dennard: Patriots DB Ready For Fresh Start


It seems like forever and a day ago that New England Patriots defensive back Alfonzo Dennard was looking at some potential major money as a kid fresh out of Nebraska. Days before the 2012 NFL Draft, he allegedly assaulted a cop and was eventually convicted of felony assault on a police officer.

Not the best of moves for a potential second-rounder.

Another unfortunate choice came in the form of a DUI arrest, a violation of previous probation.

After 35 days in an adult detention facility for his assault, Dennard is a free man, but may still be facing consequences.

Fans seem happy enough, though.

Apparently, he’s adding people left and right on SnapChat, so give him a shout if you’re so inclined. Hopefully it’s smooth sailing for Dennard from here on out, and he can look at this time in his life as a lesson learned.
