Offseason arrests ‘disappointing’

Murphy addressed the area of player conduct after the Packers had three players arrested in separate incidents this offseason after going more than three years without a player running into problems with law enforcement.

“It’s obviously very disappointing,” Murphy told “Ted (Thompson) and I, and everybody associated with the Packers, is disappointed. I think our fans are, but that being said there’s a process going forward with all those players. Some are still continuing. I guess others, there’s an appeal in place.”

Defensive end Datone Jones was arrested for marijuana possession hours after the team returned home from Seattle after losing the NFC Championship in January.

Defensive tackle Letroy Guion was arrested in February in Starke, Fla., on marijuana and firearms charges.

Then on Independence Day, tight end Andrew Quarless was charged with discharging a firearm in public during an incident in Miami Beach, Fla.

Jones has been suspended for the season opener as a result of his arrest. Guion was slapped with a three-game suspension, a penalty he is currently appealing.

The league has not levied any action against Quarless, but it is expected the NFL will hand down some sort of suspension soon.

“I’ve been in meetings with Ted,” Murphy said. “Character is key for him. So I think as you step back and look over the long run, I think they’ve really done an outstanding job of bringing in quality people.”
