OT Mario Henderson arrested for gun charges…dummy..

BREAKING NEWS – Raiders Offensive lineman Mario Henderson was arrested in FL yesterday (Thurs) morning for carrying a concealed firearm, according to several reports.
Henderson, 26, was pulled over by police in Fort Myers, Fla., for playing music too loud…In his Impala…. The arresting officer asked Henderson if he had a gun in his vehicle, to which Mario said he did..He proceeded to tell tell the officer he though it was located between the driver’s seat and the center console, according to the arrest report, and not in the glove box, as Henderson indicated.  Unfortunately, Henderson is not licensed to carry a concealed firearms permit.
This marks the second arrest of a Raiders player this offseason. Backup running back Michael Bush was arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol earlier this year. Raiders front office has not comment on Bush’s arrest and have not addressed Henderson’s legal run-in as of yet.

Henderson, a third-round draft pick in 2007, started seven games at left offensive tackle for the Raiders last season. He finished the second half of the season as a backup due to poor play,  losing his starting job to rookie Jared Veldheer.

Henderson’s contract was voided at season’s end, and he now is a free agent. Obviously, he could not be reached for comment. It’s doubtful as to whether the Raiders will attempt to re-sign him.  There is a lot of talent at left offensive tackle, but Henderson stands a decent shot at receiving a sizable contract offer from another team in need of a proven left tackle.  Just another example of an overpaid athlete thinking that the law does not apply to him.. Cut him and be done with it….
