    Former Cowboys and Chargers defensive tackle Leonardo Carson was sentenced to 10 years and one month in prison today after being convicted of conspiracy to possess and distribute cocaine and marijuana.

    Carson was arrested by FBI agents in Texas last year after being indicted in Alabama, where he grew up and played college football at Auburn. That wasn't his only brush with the law; he had also been arrested in the past on charges of menacing, harassment, assault and criminal mischief.

    In 2004 Carson served a 30-day jail sentence for misdemeanor counts of kidnapping and burglary. He was suspended for Week One of that season but started the final 15 games for the Cowboys. He has not played in an NFL game since 2004.

    It could have been worse. He was up against 27 years minimum.

    The jury convicted Carson of conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute more than 500 grams of powder cocaine; conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute more than 50 grams of crack cocaine; and conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute marijuana. Jurors also found him guilty of possession with intent to distribute crack but acquitted him of a marijuana possession charge.

    If they REALLY wanted to punish him, the judge would have made him watch every game of the World Cup. He would have hanged himself in six days.
