Coach Steve Wilks, Cardinals back rookie after recent arrest

Christian Kirk, a former standout at Scottsdale Saguaro and Texas A&M who was drafted in the second round by the Cardinals, was arrested nearly two months before the draft as he was leaving the Waste Management Phoenix Open. The Cardinals stressed that they won't be issuing any further comment while the case remains pending.

The arrest occurred outside the Waste Management Phoenix Open golf tournament on February 3.

The police report said an officer could smell alcohol on Kirk, whose eyes were bloodshot and watery.

According to azcentral.com, before this spring's draft, Kirk was arrested.at the Waste Management Phoenix Open, of all places. "As they were walking through a parking lot, security personnel observed them throwing rocks at cars and breaking a window of at least one of them".

S. Korean leader praises North's plan to dismantle nuke site
The North said it will hold a ceremony at the site next week to allow local and worldwide journalists to witness the efforts. South Korea has said Mr Kim has genuine interest in dealing away his nuclear weapons in return for economic benefits.

Here is what a Cardinals spokesperson told NFL.com: "We were aware of this incident prior to the draft". "We did our own independent research on it and we felt very good about the information that we received", coach Steve Wilks said. "Our understanding is that the process will be resolved in the near future", the team said. There were no reports of Kirk ever getting into trouble in high school or college.

"I think the situation is going to resolve itself here in a couple of months".

Kirk, a dynamic receiver and return man for the Aggies, was viewed as a potential first rounder ahead of the NFL Draft. That is what I would be interested to know, and I'm sure we won't get an answer. He was a standout at Saguaro High in Scottsdale and played at Texas A&M.
