Minnesota linebacker Lamonte Edwards dismissed from team
Gophers linebacker Lamonte Edwards was kicked off the team for a violation of team rules, a U of M spokesman confirmed Wednesday.



According to a search warrant, Edwards was arrested after an iPhone was stolen from another U of M athlete in a weight room inside a Gophers athletics building on June 18. Tracking software led police to Edwards, who first said the phone belonged to his cousin. When questioned later by U of M Police, he admitted he stole the phone from the weight room, according to the warrant and a U of M Police report.

A U of M Police spokesman said Edwards was released. Charges are pending from the Minneapolis City Attorney's Office.

Edwards, a junior who played in high school at Woodbury, transitioned from running back to linebacker during the course of his career. He made eight tackles during the 2012 season and started one game, against New Hampshire.

This kid should have been kicked off the team just for being too stupid. How did he think he was going to get away with this theft. He apparently did not even turn off the iPhone.

Your state would have no teams, with an IQ requirement...
