Found April 10, 2012 on
According to the police report that was filed following an incident at Pure Nightclub, Terrance Knighton and a friend "repeatedly made threats to shoot people." Hat tip to Gregg Rosenthal of NFL.com for the find.
The Jaguars released a short statement Tuesday responding to the report:
"We are aware of the incident report regarding Terrance Knighton. We hold all of our players to a high standard of behavior, as does the National Football League. We're concerned about this matter, and it is being handled internally. We'll have no further comment at this time."
NFL players are held to a high standard not only by their employers, the team owners, but also by the general public. When news like this reaches my ears, I'm always disappointed regardless of what team the offending player plays for.
Terrance Knighton should know better, and, provided that the police report is accurate, I see no reason why a short suspension should be out of the question....

I am constantly amazed by the amount of talent in the Arena Football League. There is definitely NFL-caliber talent on these rosters. The upper body strength alone should get some looks.
