There is a changing of the guard going on in the NFC North. The Bears are trying to unseat the Detroit Lions for the offseason arrest blotter award. First J’Marcus Webb being arrested on possession charges, now Evan Rodriguez is trying to make a name for himself.
The tight end was arrested for resisting an offer without violence. How swell of him? Luckily for Rodriguez, he was in Miami working out with Bears WR/Savior Brandon Marshall. I would imagine GM Phil Emery will be having a sit down with E-Rod soon.
MIAMI (CBSMiami) – Chicago Bears tight end Evan Rodriguez isn’t a household name among football fans, but he’s now known very well by the Miami Beach Police Department.Rodriguez was arrested near 6th and Alton Road on Miami Beach and booked just after 5:30 a.m. Thursday on charges of resisting an officer without violence and disorderly intoxication.
Rodriguez was facing a $1,500 bond for the two charges.
The former Temple Owl just finished his first season with the Bears in 2012 and had four catches for 21 yards last season while starting five games.
