You may have learned just earlier today that Arizona Cardinals linebacker Clark Haggans will be spending a significant portion of his summer behind bars. This all comes as a result of a DUI he received in the summer of 2011 in the midst of the NFL lockout.

While it is assumed Haggans will be available by the time training camp rolls around, the question is whether or not he should be present when the time comes. That leads us to the question for today: How should the Cardinals and/or the NFL handle the issue with Haggans?

To answer this question, we have to use as little bias as possible. This is a site for Cardinals fans, but he committed a misdemeanor that should not be tolerated by the league. The Cardinals have many routes that they can take. Should the just let it alone and hope he doesn't do it again? How about a suspension for the first 'X' number of games in the regular season? Or should they cut him outright to set a precedent?
