Kraft's Uncertain Future In The NFL
Robert Kraft has reportedly rejected a plea deal from Florida prosecutors that would have dropped all charges in the prostitution solicitation case against him, as long as he paid the requisite fines, performed community service, and admitted that a jury would have found him guilty if the case had gone to trial.
