List Rules Only NFL players who have committed / been charged with domestic abuse

As much as people love the NFL, one of the biggest problems that the league has faced over the years is that its players are more likely, at least publicly, to commit domestic violence. The stories have gotten more coverage over the years, with the attention potentially peaking with the infamous Ray Rice incident that took place in February 2014. Given all of the attention football players and domestic violence have received over the past few years, it's surprising that players can't control themselves and end up in the police blotter. Many NFL players have been caught beating their wives and wind up getting arrested. While the NFL has cracked down on domestic violence, it's likely that it will happen again in the future, especially considering the volatile nature of football players.

If you're an NFL player, you don't want to end up on this list. But, that said, here are the NFL players who have been arrested on domestic violence charges.
