FSU’s Reid Dismissed From Team

(Slightly edited from  FSU cornerback Greg Reid has been dismissed from the team for a violation of team rules.
Reid, who had 32 tackles and two interceptions last season, was slated to be one of the Noles starting cornerbacks and was on pace to break the school's punt return yardage record held by Deion Sanders. Reid tallied seven interceptions in his FSU career.

Reid has had his share of off-field issues. He was suspended for a game for a violation of team rules in 2011. He was also arrested on charges of perjury in an unofficial proceeding and resisting arrest during another incident involving a friend using Reid's scooter last fall. The charges were dropped in that case.

The latest public news involving Reid off the field came when was arrested by the Georgia State Patrol following a traffic stop in his hometown of Valdosta, Ga. on July 10 and charged with misdemeanor possession of marijuana, driving with a suspended license and a seatbelt violation. An additional team rules violation since the arrest could have been Fisher's grounds for dismissal.

C’mon Greg, put your damn seat belt on…

This past spring, Reid said that maturity was a goal for him on and off the field.
