The arrest comes one day after the NFL suspended Buccaneer Aqib Talib one game stemming from an assault incident the cornerback was involved in with a taxi cab driver. Talib’s suspension was for violating the NFL’s Personal Conduct Policy. Mosley could be facing consequences under that same policy that not only applies to players but all fulltime league employees or employees of member clubs.
