Personally, I find these off-season arrests mind boggling. I can just imagine the anxiety Coaches, GMs, and Owners must go through during the off-season. I would LOVE to be in one of the team's meetings before they are released. A bunch of grown men being lectured like children on how to behave. Anyways, I took a few minutes and broke down the 31 arrests that we've had this off-season. The results aren't too stunning, but (in my opinion) it's fun to look at them a little more in depth. Why not?

Remarks: Not going to spend a boat load of time on this, therefore:
Used conference affiliation as of 2011.
Did not take into account how many players of each converence are in the NFL.
Did not take into account the average age of the NFL player.
Take these fun stats as they are.
If you find any glaring mistakes, please let me know!
