Former NFL quarterback Jon Kitna revealed on The Ryen Russillo Podcast that an ex-teammate and wide receiver for the Cincinnati Bengals played an entire game while intoxicated.
“There was a time that I played a game with a guy that was drunk in the huddle,” Kitna said.
Kitna, who played for the Bengals from 2001 to 2005, said players were expected to show up to the stadium at least two hours prior to kickoff, but this unidentified wideout showed up less than an hour before the game started. When Russillo asked if members of the organization were aware that this player was under the influence, Kitna said he was unsure if the staff knew, adding “that was kind of his normal.”
Kitna said this player still managed to put up some impressive stats, despite being hammered. “He was drunk and had close to 200 yards receiving now,” he recalled. “So, it was crazy.”
