Free agents in the NFL are not yet able to sign with teams, but that has not stopped the five players on this list from severely hurting their value.
All of the players on this list were arrested for one reason or another, and now find themselves part of a competitive free agency class with a big "proceed with caution" label on them.
For most of these players their arrest won't keep them off the field because they will not have to serve any jail time. Instead what will keep them off an NFL roster and off the field is the character issue that an arrest shows.
Often times players like this can be a cancer in the locker room, and because of that, teams don't want them anywhere near their players.
The following slideshow features five players who are free agents and were arrested in the offseason, and how their value has changed.
