Jon Runyan Jr. addresses goofy notion that his father suspended Mike Evans to help the Packer

It’s good to be skeptical about the various things that can corrupt a decision-making process. However, at times the effort to spot potential conflicts of interest can run amok.

That’s exactly what happened with the suspension of Buccaneers receiver Mike Evans.

The initial decision was made by former NFL player Jon Runyan. His son plays for the Packers. The Packers play the Buccaneers on Sunday. Obviously, it helps the Packers if Evans doesn’t play.

You can’t be running 15 yards trying to head-hunt somebody when the play’s over. It is funny, though, how stuff works out sometimes.”

Runyan Jr. addressed the situation perfectly. The play was over. The whistle had blown. Evans sprinted in from the edge of the field and blasted Saints cornerback Marshon Lattimore. It was a…
