With the opening of training camps across the league this week, the NFL offseason is officially over.
It was a disastrous one for the NFL.
30-one active players were arrested, most infamously star New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez. Since the Super Bowl on February 3, NFL players have been arrested for everything from public intoxication to street racing, child abuse, and trying to solicit a prostitute.
The NFL is using the slogan “Back To Football” to promote the upcoming season, but it’ll be tough to forget everything that went down this spring and summer.
