Former Cincinnati Bengals linebacker J.K. Schaffer pleaded no contest to charges of assault and public indecency following an incident at a church in February.

According to Cameron Knight of the Cincinnati Enquirer, Schaffer pleaded to reduced charges after he was accused of getting into a fight and exposing himself at Book of Acts Tabernacle Church in Hamilton, Ohio on Feb. 19. Charges of breaking and entering were not included in the reduced charges.

“He is not the individual he was on the date these things happened,” said Mike Allen, Schaffer’s representation.

Schaffer appeared in nine games with the Bengals in 2013 after spending time on the team’s practice squad the year prior. He recorded six tackles during his tenure before being released in 2014.

    Whether you believe in God or not, you must be a real nut job to act like that in a church.

    With these charges against him, I’m guessing that Cincinnati will bring him back as a starter now. He’ll fit right in with the rest of the criminals.

    About a player that’s been out of the league since 2014 at that.

    Not really. After all, we all know that guys accused of sexual assault and indecency end up on the Steelers

    I’m no doctor, but it was really clear at the time of these incidents that JK Schaffer had some massive mental problems. He even made fun of his own attorney in his first hearing. He may be on meds or something now, but this whole incident was a very loud cry for help.
