Fourth of July weekend has brought some troubling news to the NFL recently. Last year it was Jason Pierre-Paul and his fireworks accident. This year it appears that the big story is Jacksonville Jaguars RB Denard Robinson allegedly falling asleep at the wheel and driving his car into a pond early Sunday morning.
Luckily, thanks to a Jacksonville police officer who responded to a 911 call early on Sunday morning, Robinson and his female passenger were able to escape from the vehicle unharmed.

If this is the worst NFL news story from over the weekend, then I’d say it was a successful Fourth of July weekend for the National Football League.
