New York Giants linebacker Dan Connor was arrested at Philadelphia International Airport on Saturday, according to police and team officials.

An X-ray machine revealed a switchblade in Connor's bag, prompting him to be arrested and charged with possession of an offensive weapon. The police stated that the 27 year-old was released on his own recognizance. And according to the Giants, Connor "is cooperating with the authorities in Philadelphia."

Connor's arrest marks the 34th NFL player to be arrested since the Super Bowl, which was held on February 3.
