CHICAGO (AP) -Chicago Bears defensive tackle Tank Johnson could become the third player suspended by NFL commissioner Roger Goodell when they meet Wednesday, three days after Johnson was released from jail.
The meeting in New York comes two days before the Bears hold a mandatory mini-camp that Johnson is expected to attend.
Johnson served two months in the Cook County Jail for violating his probation on weapons charges. His detention stemmed from a Dec. 14 police raid on his Gurnee home, where authorities found six unregistered firearms. He already was on probation on an earlier charge.
Goodell has been cracking down on personal conduct off the field. In April, the commissioner suspended Tennessee Titans defensive back Adam ``Pacman'' Jones for the entire 2007 season and Chris Henry of the Cincinnati Bengals for eight games.
Johnson pleaded guilty last month to a misdemeanor weapons charge as part of a deal with prosecutors that kept him from serving more time in jail. He was ordered to serve 45 days, which he was able to serve concurrently with the sentence for violating his probation.
At the time of the December raid, Johnson was on probation in a November 2005 Cook County case. In that case, he pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor charge stemming from an arrest after a nightclub valet reported seeing Johnson with a handgun in his SUV.
