Easy come; sleazy go!

National Football League players begin arriving for work this week.

Good thing. Jail houses from Maryland to California are running out of cells to hide their misbehavin’ bodies.

The most valuable performer in the off-season for several NFL teams turned out to be the local bail bondsman.

The Buffalo Bills have a lot to prove this season. Like making the playoffs. And, like getting Marcell Dareus to camp before Alabama has to declare him a serial public nuisance.

The Ravens and 49ers lead the league with three player arrests each, including all-star Ray Rice.

Take young, testosterone-charged young men. Combine it with pots full of money. Add that to a collection of too much time, booze or drugs. Mix in the occasional scarlet woman, and it is a recipe for trouble. Of course that doesn’t explain Colts owner Jim Irsay, getting busted for drunk driving. Older but no wiser, evidently.
