Where do the Tennessee Titans rank among teams with the highest amount of arrests since 2000? Instant Checkmate writer Logan Strain used data from San Diego Union Tribune’s NFL Arrests database to complete the following infographic. This infographic was released on Aug. 28, 2013. Any arrests since then aren’t documented.

Eight arrests for Adam “Pacman” Jones. Titans fans remember those days all too well—wasted talent.
The Titans had 33 arrests. Only three teams had a higher amount. Those teams were the Cincinnati Bengals, Minnesota Vikings and Denver Broncos. The Houston Texans were tied with the fewest amount of arrests with nine. Ironically, their back-to-back AFC Divisional playoff losses have come against the Baltimore Ravens (Ray Lewis) and New England Patriots (Aaron Hernandez). Right behind the Titans were the Jacksonville Jaguars, who had 29 arrests.
Notice how the centers and nose tackles almost never have any violations? Those center vs nose tackle duels are some of the dirtiest confrontations in all of sports. They must let all of their violence build up for those three-and-a-half hour stretches on game day.
Of 667 player arrests, 188 of them (28.2 percent) were because of a DUI or DWI. Not enough common sense to call a cab or have a designated drive tag along.
Fascinating results. Anybody have any input? Let us know in the comments, Twitter or Facebook. Entire article with infographic can be found here.
