Chicago Bears with the 11th most players arrested since 2000

Bears fans, some of you like to take shots at Detroit fans for supporting a team full of convicts, but the Bears have had six more players arrested since 2000 than the Lions have. (Insert best throw stones, glass houses type phrase here)

Over on Reddit, they have an impressive and colorful graph showing how many NFL players from each team were arrested since 2000. Would you believe the Bengals aren't in 1st place... all by themselves? The 40 players arrested by Cincinnati is actually tied with the Minnesota Vikings.

The Chicago Bears just miss out on the top ten, coming in 11th. The remaining top ten following the Bengals and Vikes are the Denver Broncos, Tennessee Titans, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Kansas City Chiefs, Jacksonville Jaguars, Cleveland Browns, Miami Dolphins, and the San Diego Chargers.

Even though the Detroit Lions have had a number of recent brushes with the Law, they actually trail the Bears in arrests since 2000, 23-17. The Lions are down at 18th, tied with 5 other teams, in arrests. Well, I suppose those Bears fans that insist on talking smack can direct their vitriol towards Minnesota fans now. Either that or just give it a rest entirely...

Check out their graphs and let us know what you think, and remember no more trash talking with Lions fans about their convicts.
