For the second summer in a row, a member of the Arizona Cardinals has been arrested. Last summer, it was general manager Steve Keim for driving drunk.

The latest is defensive lineman Robert Nkemdiche, according to ABC15 in Phoenix. On June 6 at 6:30 a.m., presumably on his way to the team facility for organized team activities, Nkemdiche was arrested for speeding and for driving on a suspended license.

He was going 75 miles per hour in a 45-miles-per-hour zone in Scottsdale.

He was pulled over for speeding and it was discovered that he had an outstanding warrant for his arrest for driving on a suspended license and failing to appear in court.

Police also found a white, powdery substance in a credit card case but chose not to test it, instead impounding it to destroy it.

The Cardinals released a statement, according to ABC15 indicating the team has been aware of the situation, alerted the league and will wait comment further until it is more appropriate.

It is yet another disappointment in the short career of the former first-round pick.

After three years, every concern about Nkemdiche there was about him coming out of college has been an issue. He takes plays off. He is undisciplined within a scheme. Minor injuries set him back. He made questionable decisions off the field.

Nkemdiche is still recovering from a torn ACL suffered late last season. He isn't likely going to be ready to play until at least midseason.

With this latest issue, it might be fair to say he might not play again for Arizona.
