The New England Patriots have found themselves in the midst of another scandal.
This time, it involves team owner Robert Kraft.
Kraft on Friday was charged with two counts of soliciting another to commit prostitution. While it remains to be seen if the Patriots will face any punishment for Kraft’s alleged actions, former NFL linebacker/notable Pats critic Bart Scott thinks New England should face serious consequences.
“I would take their whole draft from them,” Scott said Friday on WFAN’s “Carlin, Maggie and Bart” show. “It has to be something that cripples the organization. This is a black eye. You talk about conduct detrimental … He has to be suspended for at least a year. You start at a year. I’d take their entire draft. I’d cripple the organization, and I’d put him on sabbatical.”
All of the details about the prostitution sting Kraft allegedly was involved in have not yet been released. There has been a warrant issued for Kraft’s arrest, but the 77-year-old has not yet been convicted of a crime.
Scott, who spent seven seasons with the Baltimore Ravens and four seasons with the New York Jets, has been one to rip the Patriots any chance he gets, so his comments come as no surprise.
The NFL noted Friday it’s actively following the investigation.
