    Lawrence Phillips investigated for allegedly murdering prison cell mate

      The Lawrence Phillips story, already full of many disturbing off-field problems, has taken a remarkably dark turn.

      Phillips is being investigated for murdering his cell mate in Kern Valley State Prison, according to Jason Galvin of KGET television. According to Galvin and confirmed by TMZ, Phillips is suspected of murdering Damion Soward, a 37-year-old who was serving 82 years to life for first-degree murder, on Saturday morning. Phillips is serving 31 years in prison in California for attacking his girlfriend and driving his car into three teens.

      Mention Phillips' name around a football fan and the first thing that will come to mind is how troubled he was, sabotaging his promising football career. At the University of Nebraska, Phillips was suspended for an incident in which he allegedly dragged his ex-girlfriend by her hair down a flight of stairs. He was, incredibly, reinstated by the team before the end of the season. Nebraska went on to win a national championship.

      Phillips was, incredibly, drafted sixth overall by the St. Louis Rams in 1996, less than a year after he allegedly assaulted his ex-girlfriend. Adrian Peterson, perhaps the most impressive college running back ever and an NFL MVP, went with the seventh pick 11 years later, for reference on how amazing it was that the Rams took the troubled yet talented Phillips that high. Phillips was a massive bust for the Rams. He was not productive on the field and, not so incredibly, tough to deal with off it. He averaged just 3.4 yards with three NFL teams. He tried continuing his career in the Arena Football League, NFL Europe, the Canadian Football League, but never stuck long anywhere, often because he was tough to deal with.

      Phillips appeared in the news again in 2005 when he twice choked his girlfriend. Later in the year came the attack with his car on the teens after a pickup football game, according to the AP's report.

      Now comes the report that Phillips is suspected of murdering his cell mate in prison. One of football's truly horrible stories got even worse.

    I remember when the Rams drafted him. Everyone seemed to know he was a ticking timebomb except them.

    Not only did the Rams take him that high, but they also traded their current RB, and future HOFer, Jerome Bettis to the Steelers, to make room for Phillips.

    Phillips commissary acct should get a deposit worth 1/2 of what it would cost to house the other jail bird for his life sentence.

    Interesting. The UFC fighter/Manager Joe Son, who was convicted of rape, also killed his cellmate (allegedly) 3.5 years ago. That case seems to be dragging on.

    • Son is accused of killing fellow sex offender Thomas Graham in 2011
    • Son had served just a month of a life sentence at California's Wasco State Prison for a 1990 gang rape and torture when Graham was found dead

    Joe Son only had a few fights, he's most known for taking some epic groin shots in the early days of the UFC...:nooo:

    I remember this guy at Nebraska and Tom Osborne letting him come back after suspension to play in the championship game against the old ball coach's Florida Gators. That year they beat the shit out of Gators and didn't even need Phillips to play.

    If memory serves right they guy was suspended for hitting a woman back then.
