Washington Football Team coach Ron Rivera called the release of running back Derrius Guice a tough but necessary decision. Washington released Guice on Friday, the same day he was arrested on three counts of domestic violence, stemming from incidents in February, March and April, according to the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Department. “Anytime you have to release a very talented player it’s always a tough decision,” said Rivera, in his first public comments about the situation. “We take those allegations very, very seriously and we had to make a decision. I talked to [Washington’s] players yesterday that I made a decision I believe was in the best interest of our organization and if it was the right decision we’ll benefit from it and if not it will be on me. I will take full responsibility going forward to make sure we do things the right way.”
