Nothing good happens in Florida, or at least that appears to be the case for the Green Bay Packers over the last few months.

Late last season, Aaron Rodgers hurt his calf on the turf in Tampa Bay's Raymond James Stadium. Earlier this year, Letroy Guion underwent a much-publicized traffic stop that resulted in the seizure of a sizeable amount of marijuana and nearly $200,000 in cash. On Saturday morning, Andrew Quarless was arrested for discharging a firearm in public in Miami.

Now, Guion is facing another issue stemming from an incident in Florida. However, his attorneys are quick to downplay the legitimacy of this new legal battle.

It's been quite the weekend, it seems. At least the USWNT had a better one than these NFL players did.

Big toe woes can't stop Packers' Josh Sitton |

Transition in final stages for Jeff Janis |
Yeah, yeah, yeah, it's that second-year jump. It's a bigger deal for Janis than many players though, as he's making a transition from lower levels of college football in Division II.

For Chris Borland, leaving NFL is not about the money |
It also wasn't a difficult decision to return 3/4 of his signing bonus; as Borland put it, "I signed a contract. I was living by the contract."
