The off-season is well under way and while for some players that means rehab, vacations and getting in better shape for next season, for one Houston Texans star, it could be filled with court appearances.
One of the Texans' rookie stars from last year, wide receiver Jaelen Strong has found himself amongst the headlines following an incident in Scottsdale, Arizona.

Strong was in a car along with Green Bay Packers cornerback Damarious Randall and a third passenger which was reportedly pulled over for not having a visible license plate.
Once stopped, the police officers noticed the smell of marijuana and questioned the trio which then led to Strong revealing multiple marijuana cigarettes.
Marijuana is legal in the state of Arizona for medical reasons which certainly don't apply to two NFL players.
Strong was arrested while his two compatriots were allowed to leave - Strong wasn't actually charged though.
The state could decide to press charges against the NFL wide receiver who could now be set for an off-season of controversy.
Now will surely come the questions of punishment from the NFL who are often very firm on their players not using Marijuana.
It will also be interesting to see if the Texans themselves take any action against their rookie receiver.
