Last season, there were a ton of NFL players who got arrested. From Alfonzo Dennard to Aaron Hernandez, many guys found themselves in trouble with the law for a variety of reasons. In fact, 2013 was so bad that a site called SeatCrunch discovered that it was the worst year for the NFL as far as arrests were concerned in more than a decade. Crazy.
This year is (fortunately!) off to a much slower start. But if there are a lot of guys who end up getting arrested this offseason, you'll be able to keep track of it thanks to a new website called NFL Crime Arrests & PED Suspension Rankings. Its mission is to track the number of NFL-related arrests and PED suspensions between the end of the 2013-14 NFL season and the end of the 2014-15 NFL season. And thanks to Roddy White and Ray Rice, the site is already up and functioning.
Is it weird that a site like this exists? Yes. Is the NFL pissed that it's out there? If they know about it, yes. But because the NFL has seen its fair share of arrests in recent years, the league has no one to blame but itself. So all they can do is sit back and hope that this year will be better than last.
