After a regular season featuring a relatively small amount of off-field trangressions, there has been a rash of alleged criminal misconduct lately among NFL players.
The latest? Redskins guard Chad Rinehart was busted in Iowa for public intoxication.
The arrest came Monday, outside Mojo’s Pizza House in Cedar Falls.
Rinehart played college football at Northern Iowa before joining the ‘Skins via round three of the 2008 draft. He was placed on injured reserve with a broken leg after starting four games during the 2009 season.
UPDATE: The Redskins have issued a response to the news. “We are aware of this incident but have no further comment,” the team said in a statement provided to us by e-mail.
