Denver Broncos nose tackle Ronald Fields was arrested over the weekend in Houston for allegedly carrying a weapon (a misdemeanor charge) according to The Denver Post (citing multiple television reports).

Fields came to Denver via the San Francisco 49ers and former Broncos defensive coordinator Mike Nolan, he was quickly replaced as the starting nose tackle this off-season by former Baltimore Ravens defensive end Justin Bannan and finally by former San Diego Chargers great nose tackle Jamal Williams.

Coach Josh McDaniels will not comment on the news, but the Broncos acknowledged Saturday that they are aware of the charge. Houston police will not have an official statement until later today.

It is not known now what the Broncos move will be in regards to Fields, Fields started 16 games for the Broncos last season as they began their effort to transition to a full 3-4 defense.

UPDATE (5/11/10 – 12:23 EST) - Fields will face sentencing Friday in Houston. The NFL will not release comment until the investigation is complete. The Denver Post says that the vehicle Fields was in was flagged down by another drier who says that they saw Fields waving the gun inside of a white mercedes benz.

This would be his first violation, though he could still be suspended as possession of a fire arm falls under the offenses that are punishable under the NFL’s personal conduct policy.

Fields was mentioned by McDaniels recently this off-season as being amongst the great back-ups the Broncos currently employ. This charge is of course part of a larger problem within the NFL, that being that some players feel forced to protect themselves. Seeing themselves as targets, with a large bounty on their chests. We wish Fields the best through these times and hope to see him in a Broncos uniform this season.

    Does anybody else feel like that is a gigantic waste of tape?

    Maybe he should play with the sticky side out – or would that constitute defensive holding?

    Arrested for carrying a weapon in TX? Are you sure he wasn't arrested for not carring a weapon?
