Roger Goodell will be busy with discipline; three more players involved in incidents

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell is having the most hectic season with discipline in recent memory.  Whether it’s the bounty investigaton that magnified the issue, he’ll have his hands full going into the 2012-2013 season.

While Goodell will get little sympathy, especially from New Orleans Saints fans, the trend this offseason with arrests and alleged incidents involving players is becoming quite an issue with three in the last few days.

On Friday Jacksonville Jaguars defensive lineman Odrick Ray was arrested following a traffic stop.  Ray had an outstanding traffic warrant and was arrested after being pulled over for speeding and not wearing a seabelt.

Early Monday morning the website TMZ.com reported that Cleveland Browns safety T.J. Ward was allegedly involved in a schuffle outside a nighclub in Hollywood.  The report stated that security had to discharge pepper spray but no arrests were made.

Also on Monday, Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant was arrested on a domestic charge in DeSoto which is being labeled as a “Class A family violence charge”.  Bryant has bonded out of jail and no other information is being made available on the arrest.

Of these three, Goodell will certainly be talking with Bryant since this is not the first time Bryant has had off-field issues dating back to his college days at Oklahoma State University.
