If that’s true, his criminal career is already leaps and bounds better than his NFL career.
Task force members on Friday told Leaf’s probation officer to call in the ex-quarterback. They searched Leaf and his truck, finding two presc...

A SURVEY THIS WEEK of some of Ryan Leaf's friends, former teammates, colleagues, coaches and teachers has yielded an outpouring of understanding about the insidious nature of addiction and an even bigger outpouring of support and goodwill for the former Washington State All-American in his struggles.
From draft bust to drug bust.
Ryan Leaf, the ultimate bust when it comes to NFL franchise quarterback draft picks, was arrested for the second time in the past four days. Meaning the Cincinnati Bengals have already contacted his agent about working him out and getting him on the roster. No, I’m joking about that last part.
But seriously, you know how extensive the legal issues...
Matt Bush, Ryan Leaf.
A pair of four-letter words, actually a quartet of four-letter words, and a set that continue to curse the history of San Diego sports.
We thought the two couldn’t possibly hit rock bottom worse than they already had – but in the last seven days the pair has proved us wrong.
Matt Bush went first last week. Tagged as the No. 1 overall pick in the...
