Alex McGough is not a name most NFL fans know very well, but he is in the headlines this week for being accused of doing something criminal.
The Seattle Seahawks backup quarterback is being investigated by police after allegedly being involved in a bar brawl in Florida on St. Patrick’s Day that left one man bloodied and injured, reports say.
Sources told TMZ Sports in a report published on Saturday that although he has not been arrested or charged with a crime, he is being accused of approaching 24-year-old Anthony Albino at the bar and accused the guy of hitting on his girlfriend. Albino said the conversation quickly escalated and that’s when the NFL player punched him in the face.
The victim told the outlet that he only suffered a bloody nose and a cut on his elbow.
McGough was selected by the Seahawks in the seventh round of the 2018 draft. After being waived before the start of the season, he would sign with the Jaguars in January 2019 before getting waived before the start of the season.
He later signed with the Houston Texans before re-signing with the Seahawks’ practice squad in December.
