Recently of the Cleveland Browns, new Arizona Cardinals offensive tackle Desmond Harrison may very well be without an NFL team in the very near future.

Harrison was charged with the assault and strangulation of a woman in North Carolina early on Wednesday. The Greensboro police issued a felony arrest warrant for the 25-year-old, who was released by the Browns last season before being picked up by the Cardinals.

According to Yahoo! Sports, Harrison has a history of confrontations with authority, as he was suspended three times while playing football for the University of Texas. The Cardinals have not yet released a statement regarding the incident, but once there is more information, we can expect that Arizona and the NFL will both hold press conferences.

The arrest warrant and allegations are rather disturbing, but until more information is made available, we are all left pondering what exactly happened in this situation. The NFL has had a long history of dealing with domestic assault charges, and their suspensions have varied each time. If this case holds true to the reports, the NFL will have another important disciplinary decision on their hands very soon.
