PLAYERS: Mario Williams
TEAMS: Buffalo Bills

Buffalo Bills pass rusher Mario Williams has had a bad offseason. From trying to recover an engagement ring worth more than half a million dollars to poking fun at the Aaron Hernandez situation, Williams was just looking forward to the season. Via ProFootballTalk, Williams might be the center of an investigation of a police academy he graduated from in May of this year. The focus of the investigation is to find out if the police academy has been cutting corners in handing out its’ certificates.
