Washington is great when he's on the football field. The problem? He won't be on the field in 2014. For the second straight year he's been popped by the NFL for substance abuse. Time to get your priorities straight, man.

No one is exactly sure what Rice did during his infamous elevator incident, but it's probably safe to assume he did something bad, given that he held a press conference to apologize for his arrest.

Hardy turned over 10 guns to police after a domestic incident with his girlfriend in May. There's no word yet on the punishment he'll receive, but he allegedly tossed his GF around. If that's the case, Goodell needs to bring the hammer down on him.

Last, and certainly not least, we have Aaron Hernandez. 2013 was a bad year for him, but 2014 is looking like it will end up being worse. So far he's allegedly fought an inmate and been sent to solitary confinement, and been charged with double-murder. Why did he allegedly murder two people in 2012? Because they spilled a drink on him...
