Yikes - NFL Players In Trouble

Does it seem like everyday a new NFL player is getting in trouble with the law?

Just how many players have gotten in trouble this off-season? Pro Football Talk kept a running list of the off the field incidents.

Eagles DT Mike Patterson unfortunately makes the list.

6/30/08: Pats DB Willie Andrews is arrested for assault with a dangerous weapon, a felony, and unlawful possession of a firearm. (No points are assessed because the Pats cut Andrews the next day.)
6/28/08: Ravens DB Derrick Martin is arrested for possession of marijuana.
6/27/08: Bills RB Marshawn Lynch pleads guilty to failure to exercise due care, avoiding charges of hit-and-run.
6/24/08: Cardinals OL Brandon Keith pleads guilty to misdemeanor rioting and interference with official acts.
6/24/08: It is reported for the first time that Broncos WR Brandon Marshall was arrested for misdemeanor domestic battery on March 6.
6/24/08: It is reported for the first time that LB Jordon Dizon was arrested six days before the draft for suspicion of DUI; he was drafted by the Lions six days later.
