In January, Moss was accused of beating a woman and then refusing to allow her to get medical help.

Maurice Clarett, 2005: Clarett's issues while playing for Ohio State were well-documented. In 2002, he publicly criticized OSU for not paying for him to fly to the funeral of a friend and accused school officials of lying about saying he hadn't filed the necessary paperwork. In 2003, Clarett was suspended from Ohio State after filing a false police report.

Clarett attempted to enter the 2004 NFL Draft and challenge the league's rule that a player must be three years out of high school to be eligible for the draft. He lost in court.

Had Clarett posted similar numbers to his freshman season in his sophomore season, he would have easily been a first-round pick. But when he was eligible for the 2005 draft he showed up to the NFL Combine out of shape and ran a very slow 40-yard dash time. The Broncos took him with the final pick of the third round. He was released just four months after being drafted.
