I thought about not writing this blog because I didn't want to jinx it. But AFC East players have been on their best behavior this offseason.

In the past week or so we've seen two high-profile arrests involving Jacksonville Jaguars receiver Justin Blackmon and Detroit Lions defensive lineman Nick Fairley. There have also been various issues with teams like the Minnesota Vikings and Cincinnati Bengals.

Meanwhile, there's just one arrest among the four teams in the AFC East since the offseason began. Miami Dolphins linebacker Koa Misi was arrested in California for an alleged battery charge in March. The Buffalo Bills, New England Patriots and New York Jets have not had a single player arrested this offseason.

Trust me. I’ve had some eventful offseasons covering off-the-field news in the AFC North. Remember Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger? Remember the old Bengals? Sheesh!

But things have been quiet on the AFC East front. Knock on wood that it continues to be this way throughout the summer.
