Former L.A. Rams WR Deon Long Named Suspect in Armed Robbery
This is a big fall from grace if the allegations prove to be true.
Former Los Angeles Rams wide receiver Deon Long, who is best remembered for his roll on ‘Hard Knocks’ last season, when he got himself cut from the team after he brought a female companion back to his dorm room, has been named as a suspect in an armed robbery.
“Law enforcement sources tell us the 26-year-old is suspected of pulling a gun on a man in a craigslist transaction that had gone bad over a duffel bag.
We’re told the alleged victim told police he met up with Long to sell him the bag — but instead of producing cash, Long whipped out a pistol and made off without paying.
Cops are now investigating. We’ve also reached out to Long for comment, so far no word back. “
Here’s that viral moment from last season when then-head coach Jeff Fisher had to cut him from the team.
