Philadelphia TV station WPVI reports that Connor, who grew up in the Philadelphia area, was arrested at 9 a.m. on Saturday when TSA agents spotted the knife and called police.
According to NBCPhiladelphia.com, Connor was charged with possession of an offensive weapon.
We know New York is a tough place but maybe Conner thought he was joining the Jets — or the Sharks.
The 27-year-old Connor signed a one-year contract with the New York Giants in March. He played last season with the Cowboys after playing his first four NFL seasons with the Panthers, who took him out of Penn State in the third round of the 2008 NFL draft.
He is expected to compete for a starting job at middle linebacker this season.
