Ahead of Super Bowl Sunday, Here Are All The Broncos and Seahawks Players That Have Been Arrested
Sunday's game hasn't even begun, but Super Bowl XLVIII controversies already abound. Stories about Super Bowl sex trafficking, a battle over marijuana billboards, and extremely sexist ads are just the tip of the iceberg.
While players for the Denver Broncos and Seattle Seahawks are being hailed as heroes for making it to MetLife Stadium, multi-million dollars contracts and glory don't necessarily buy common sense or good behavior. It's no secret that NFL players aren't exactly the most well-behaved bunch of people in the world, but the Seattle Seahawks are practically saints compared to the Broncos: While both teams have players with criminal records, the Broncos have the third worst arrest rate in the NFL since 2000, according to the Denver Westword. And during the 2012 season, 21 NFL teams had players charged with domestic violence or assault on their rosters.
