League May Not Discipline Players Arrested During Lockout

According to Joe Reedy of the Cincinnati Enquirer, Andrew Whitworth, the team's Player Representative, doesn't believe that players "who were arrested during the lockout" will be "subject to discipline under the Player Conduct Policy." From Reedy:

In an email from NFL spokesman Greg Aiello, he said the league has had discussions with the players association but had no other comment.

Cincinnati has two players that were arrested during the offseason that could make a major contribution with the Bengals this year; Marvin White, a third player arrested, isn't expected to return.

Cedric Benson, already facing one assault charge, was arrested for assault again in July. The victim, before releasing photographs of his face post-assault, reportedly demanded a settlement that was disputed by the attorney for Charles "Miami" Clavens.

Adam Jones, still on the Active/Physically Unable to Perform List, entered a plea of not guilty after being charged for disorderly conduct and resisting arrest last month. Even though he hasn't practiced yet this Training Camp, he's largely expected to return for the September 11 season opener.
