For any other franchise, signing Tim Tebow to a free agent contract would have probably been the biggest story of the offseason. But for the Patriots, its seems, bringing The Chosen One aboard – along with his intense media and fan following – was only the tip of the iceberg.

At this point in time, we can foresee nothing being bigger than the ongoing Aaron Hernandez trial for the first-degree murder of Odin Lloyd. However, New England is once again dealing with the arrest of a probable 2013 stater in defensive back Alfonzo Dennard.

Granted, Dennard’s arrest is not the earth-shattering news the Patriots have been forced to deal with recently. But for a team that is so intent on keeping up “The Patriot Way,” owner Robert Kraft cannot be having a very pleasant offseason.

Dennard was arrested on suspicion of drunken driving early Thursday morning in Lincoln, Neb. When an officer pulled the former Cornhuskers car over at roughly 2 a.m. for driving erratically, Dennard refused to take a breathalyzer test.

It was at that point that he was arrested and the franchise’s offseason issues rolled on.

According to the Journal-Star, Dennard tumbled down 2012 NFL Draft boards after punching a cop during a fight less than a week prior to the event. Like Hernandez, what other teams considered a “character issue,” New England considered a diamond in the rough – they got themselves a starting-caliber player in the seventh round.
