You may think of the Oakland Raiders and Raider Nation as pretty notorious, but when it comes to the law, they’re actually the most well-behaved.
According to research at SilverandBlackPride.com, the Raiders are the only professional football team that has gone three years without a player getting arrested. That is officially the longest active streak of good behavior in the entire league.
The Washington Redskins almost tied the Raiders for this title, until Skins’ linebacker Junior Galette was busted by Biloxi, Mississippi, police earlier this month for “misdemeanor disorderly conduct and failure to comply with police orders,” NFL.com reports.
So when was the Raiders’ last arrest? You’ve got to go all the way back to March of 2014. Running back Kory Sheets, who had been signed a month earlier out of the CFL, was arrested for marijuana possession. The charges were later dropped. Sheets got injured in camp and never played a down for the Raiders, anyway.
We can’t help but wonder if all of this good news will change for the Raiders soon. After all, they are moving to Sin City. And let’s face it, who the hell can stay out of trouble in Vegas?
