NFL roundup: Lions' Berry arrested again

The SportsXchange

Detroit Lions cornerback Aaron Berry was arrested Saturday morning in Harrisburg, Pa., and charged with three counts of simple assault.

The arrest, which was first reported by Pro Football Talk.com, was the second of the off-season for Berry and sixth among Lions players.

The undrafted free agent from Pitt was no longer in custody, according to Harrisburg police. Officials did say there was a firearm involved.

On Friday, Berry was remanded to enter a diversionary program in Harrisburg after a he was arrested last month on suspicion of DUI. The Detroit Free Press reported that this arrest could put that program at-risk.

Earlier this off-season, teammates Mike Leshoure and Nick Fairley were arrested in two separate incidents for each player.

---The Philadelphia Eagles have traded cornerback D.J. Johnson to the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday for defensive tackle Ollie Ogbu in a deal involving two undrafted free agents.

Johnson, who five interceptions during his senior season at Jackson State, has played 10 NFL games over two seasons (2009-10) with the New York Giants, making three tackles. He was on the Eagles practice squad for most of last season.

Ogbu, who played at Penn State, was signed by the Colts right out of college last season and spent the season on their practice squad.

---Second-year quarterback Cam Newton will be among the participants at the Carolina Panthers' three-day rookie camp, which starts Monday, the Charlotte Observer reported.

Although Newton is not coming off an injury and is not a rookie, he will attend the camp so he can begin working with the Panthers' rookie receivers.

The Panthers drafted wide receiver Joe Adams in the fourth round and added several free-agent wide receivers, including Jared Green and Rico Wallace.
