New York Giants middle linebacker Dan Connor was arrested Saturday at the Philadelphia International Aiport and cited on a weapons possession charge for allegedly carring a switchblade inside his luggage.
Connor was signed by the Giants during the offseason after he spent 2012 with the Dallas Cowboys. He is competing with Mark Herzlich for the starting middle linebacker job.
Rotoworld said Connor was released on his own recognizance and is not expected to face any discipline from the NFL.
