Considering the drunk driving epidemic that has taken a hold of the NFL this offseason — and subsequently cost one player his job — it’s time for somebody to step up and deliver a message.
The time has come, and that somebody is T.J. Lang.
On Sunday, the Packers guard tweeted out the following to his fellow NFL players, emphasizing the need for a cab should they go out drinking.
Dear co-workers.. These are pretty cheap.. Try one out twitter.com/TJLang70/statu…

It’s definitely a valid point. With the amount of money players are making, a cab would cost peanuts and potentially prevent an unnecessary run-in with police, or worse. The league also has a car service available, which runs 24 hours a day and is always at the disposal of those who choose to spend their downtime throwing a few (too many) back.
