Oakland Raiders Cornell Green was charged and arrested for Aggravated Battery-Domestic Violence

Raiders right tackle Cornell Green was charged and arrested for one count of Aggravated Battery/Domestic Violence, according to news reports out of his hometown of Tampa Bay.

Green was reportedly arrested at the airport before he could catch his flight to Oakland, where the team is entering a second week of voluntary workouts.

(Oakland Trib blogger Jerry McDonald was first to track this obscure link down this morning).

Green got into a heated argument with the mother of his two children. According to county records, he remained in jail as of 1 a.m. this morning. The charge lists an aluminum broomstick as the “deadly weapon” used in the alleged assault.

This very well could spell the end for Green in Oakland. He started the past two years but Raiders coach Tom Cable hinted strongly he wanted an upgrade from the 32-year-old veteran, who struggled with injuries and pass protection as the year wore on. Green was looking at a backup role next season as it stood. This behavior could be all that’s needed to release him now.

In 2007, Raiders cornerback Fabian Washington was arrested in Florida for domestic violence charges, and the Raiders traded him soon after.

Green absolutely is innocent until proven guilty, but that may be beside the point in Oakland. I’ve learned this much covering the NFL: when a team wants a player (think Tommy Kelly’s DUI charge), they are more than happy to give second chances. When they don’t want a player, things like this make it all the more easier to cut ties.
