Jets linebacker Dylan Donahue recently checked himself into a treatment facility after being arrested for driving under the influence for the second time in less than a year.

The 25-year-old Donahue was arrested and charged with drunken driving early on Feb. 26 after police said he drove the wrong way in the Lincoln Tunnel in New Jersey and collided with a jitney bus [url=http://www.newyorkgiantsteamonline.com/lawrence-taylor-jersey]http://www.newyorkgiantsteamonline.com/lawrence-taylor-jersey[/url] , injuring four people. He is due in court in Weehawken, New Jersey, on April 11.

Shortly after the incident, Donahue voluntarily entered rehab.

”Dylan recognizes the seriousness of these issues and has voluntarily taken some important initial steps to deal with them,” Donahue’s agent Gary Uberstine wrote in an emailed statement to The Associated Press. ”He is committed to this process of self-improvement, appreciates people respecting his privacy as he works to get healthy, and will address this matter publicly at an appropriate time.”

Donahue, a fifth-round pick last year out of West Georgia, had another DUI arrest in his hometown of Billings, Montana, on May 9, 2017 – 10 days after he was drafted by the Jets – according to the complaint affidavit obtained by the AP. Donahue was charged on Jan. 2 and pleaded not guilty through his attorney on March 1. His next court hearing is scheduled for April 3 in Municipal Court in Billings.

ESPN.com first reported Tuesday that Donahue had recently checked into a facility. It also first reported the second DUI incident on Monday.

The Jets said in a statement that they are aware of Donahue’s decision to enter a rehab facility.

”We respect and support Dylan’s decision to seek treatment [url=http://www.buccaneerscheapstore.com/m.j.-stewart-jersey-cheap]Cheap M.J. Stewart Jersey[/url] ,” the team said. ”It is important for him to focus on his health right now. The organization has a full support system in place when he is ready to return.”

In the New Jersey incident, Port Authority police said Donahue’s crash happened around 2 a.m. after an officer saw Donahue drive his car around traffic cones and enter the Lincoln Tunnel. Donahue soon collided with the bus that had 15 people on board. The Jets player and a passenger were not injured.

Less than 10 months earlier, Donahue drove into a parked pickup truck that was unoccupied at 2:25 a.m. in Billings. Donahue and a passenger suffered minor injuries after Donahue’s SUV flipped onto its roof. According to the Billings city attorney, Donahue’s blood alcohol level was at 0.137; the legal limit is 0.08.

Donahue, whose father Mitch played for Denver and San Francisco during a four-year NFL career, was a promising prospect entering last season as a rookie with the Jets. The younger Donahue grew up idolizing Kevin Greene, who was his father’s favorite player, and then got the chance to work closely with the Hall of Famer who is the Jets’ outside linebackers coach.

Dylan Donahue was expected to give New York’s pass rush a boost, but he played in only four games and had five total tackles after tearing a ligament in his right elbow while blocking on a punt return late in overtime against Jacksonville on Oct. 1. He had season-ending surgery and was hoping to be completely healthy by training camp.

More than four months have passed for Stefon Diggs since his yes-that-really-happened touchdown reception for Minnesota on the desperate last play from scrimmage gave the Vikings a postseason victory for the ages over New Orleans.

He still hears about the play a couple of times per week.

As nice as the accolades can be, they won’t win the Vikings any games this year.

”I’m kind of over it at this point. It’s definitely a blessing [url=http://www.dolphinscheapstore.com/mike-gesicki-jersey-cheap]Mike Gesicki Jersey[/url] , but we’ve got a brand new season to worry about, a lot of exciting things taking place right now, so I’m going to focus on that,” Diggs said. ”It’s definitely an old smile right now.”

After a career-high eight touchdowns in 2017 while forming one of the NFL’s best wide receiver duos with Adam Thielen, Diggs has entered the final year of his rookie contract, bound for a big raise.

With Kirk Cousins now in place, he’s working with his fourth primary starting quarterback in as many seasons in the league. John DeFilippo also represents his third offensive coordinator.

Diggs is not one to be ruffled, though, not with the hurdles he has cleared over his career and the setbacks he’s faced in life since his dad died 10 years ago.

”For me, it’s just the same old building process, getting back going, getting the trust of your quarterback. That excites me [url=http://www.pantherscheapstore.com/dj-moore-jersey-cheap]DJ Moore Jersey[/url] , having a new challenge,” said Diggs, who went to the Atlanta area with Thielen earlier this spring to hang out with and catch passes from Cousins.

Those receiver-quarterback relationships are as important as any on the roster.

”As far as being our general and the guy that’s going to lead us, I put 100 percent faith in him,” Diggs said.

Diggs is not the only integral Vikings player with an expiring deal, joining linebacker Anthony Barr and defensive end Danielle Hunter in the about-to-get-paid-a-lot club with no guarantee all three of them will fit under the salary cap.

The price for Diggs has markedly increased since the ”Minneapolis Miracle ” game not only because of the clutch catch.

Mike Evans (Tampa Bay), Sammy Watkins (Kansas City) and Jarvis Landry (Cleveland) have all signed new contracts since March with annual average values of more than $15 million. Diggs has been watching, naturally, with several public praises of his peers . Reading between the tweets? Diggs is clearly confident he’ll be in their situation soon.

”I like to congratulate guys every chance I get,” Diggs said. ”So for my particular situation, I let my resume speak for itself. It’ll figure itself out.”

If an extension doesn’t get done in 2018 and he becomes a free agent, he could still sign with the Vikings [url=http://www.buffalobillsteamonline.com/tre_davious-white-jersey]Tre'Davious White Jersey Youth[/url] , of course. Exploring the market doesn’t sound like a goal of his, however.

”I love playing for the Vikings. I started here. I’ve had all my time here. I love my teammates. I love my staff. There’s no place I’d rather be,” he said.

Barr was the only notable player missing on Wednesday from practice. Coach Mike Zimmer said Barr told him he wouldn’t attend, but Zimmer didn’t divulge a reason. Barr’s absence could be driven by a form of soft protest about the lack of a new deal or self-preservation from injury. These organized team activities in late May and early June are not required. Only the minicamp in mid-June is contractually mandatory.

One player whose presence was more pertinent than anyone’s absence was kicker Kai Forbath, who was startled last month when the Vikings drafted Auburn kicker Daniel Carlson in the fifth round. Such moves rarely end well for the incumbent.

”I fortunately have never lost a competition, and I’m not shying away from this one just because they drafted him,” Forbath said. ”As long as I make my kicks, everything should take care of itself.”
