NFL head coaches and general managers hate the off-season for one reason, they have absolutely no control over what their players get up to.


The Tennessee Titans are the latest NFL side to be hurt by the off-season, with one of their players being arrested late last night.

According to a report from  WTKR in Norfolk, Virginia, Tennessee Titans wide receiver Justin Hunter was arrested over the weekend on charges of assault.

A former second-round pick back in 2013, Hunter's future with the Titans was looking rocky after he was called out publicly by coach Ken Whisenhunt last month. This will do nothing to help that.

Authorities in Virginia Beach, Virginia, arrested Hunter for his alleged involvement in a July 3 fight at a local bar. Police didn't elaborate on Hunter's potential role in the fracas or the extent of the escalation.

The WTKR report simply stated that "a large fight at the Sandbar Raw Bar" occurred earlier in the month. More details were tweeted out later however from Audra Martin of WKRN.

"We are aware of the situation and are continuing to gather more facts," the Titans apparently said in a statement.

In his two years with the Titans since being drafted out of the University of Tennessee, the 24-year-old wideout has 46 receptions for 852 yards and seven touchdowns. That isn't good enough for his coach.

"At some point, you either get it or you won't be in this league anymore," Whisenhunt said. "That's the natural order of the NFL."

It looks like Hunter's time with the Titans will be over pretty shortly, Tennessee will almost certainly cut the receiver rather than pay him not to play.
