Washington releases RB after domestic violence arrest
Former Washington Football Team second-round pick Derrius Guice is now unemployed.
Minutes after it was reported that the running back had been arrested on five charges in Virginia, including strangulation, Washington announced that it has released the third-year back.

Guice, 23, was arrested on five total charges. That included three charges of assault and battery, the above-mentioned strangulation and destruction of property.
Washington obviously didn’t waste any time moving on from the third-year back after news of his arrest broke. It could very well represent a change of culture within the embattled NFL franchise.
A second-round pick back in 2018, Guice had played in a grand total of five games in two seasons due to injuries.
