The tragic situation sent shockwaves through the NFL and it also left a mark on Waddle, who was Ruggs’ teammate at Alabama.

“It’s a tough situation, especially for a guy like that…Good person, good dude and out of all of us, that’d be the person you’d least suspect something like that to happen to,” the Miami Dolphins star said during an appearance on the “I Am Athlete” podcast.

He further added that the tragic situation is a blunt reminder people need to have their “antennas up.” You can listen to his full comments below.

Ruggs allegedly killing a woman is a horrific and unfortunate reminder of what can happen when you allegedly make poor decisions. He had the entire world at his fingertips as one of the best young receivers in the league.

Now, he’s facing years behind bars if he’s convicted of being responsible for Tintor’s death. It’s a tragic fall from grace.

If he’s found guilty of driving under the influence and causing the crash that resulted in Tintor’s death, he also 100% deserves whatever punishment is coming his way.

Actions have consequences and in this case, his alleged actions caused a woman to die. There has to be a price to pay if convicted.
