ESPN’s Schaap Rips Seahawks for Drafting Player with Domestic Violence History

On Tuesday’s “Olbermann” on ESPN2, guest host and ESPN regular Jeremy Schaap reacted to the Seattle Seahawks drafting former University of Michigan Wolverines defensive lineman Frank Clark, who was kicked off of his college team after being arrested on charges of domestic violence last November.

Schaap questioned the research done the Seahawks after a report by the Seattle Times shows their research was not very thorough, comparing the Seahawks investigation to that of Florida State’s investigation of former quarterback Jameis Winston for sexual assault.

“Look, if the Seahawks want to argue that Clark paid his debt to society, that he went through the criminal justice system and deserves another chance that would be their prerogative, maybe amenable, maybe foolhardy, but sometimes second chances are warranted. But don’t insult us. Don’t lie to your fans by claiming your investigation was thorough. The Seattle Times was thorough, not the Seahawks. This was more like an FSU investigation. Of course, if we had video of Clark punching his girlfriend he would be radioactive.”
