CIRCLE THE DATE

Now that the NFL's 2013 calendar year has begun, here's what fans have to look forward to.

"Last weekend, my client Alec Ogletree was pulled over for speeding and a lane violation in Arizona," agent Pat Dye, Jr. told ProFootballTalk. "After the officers smelled alcohol, they conducted tests and also cited him for DUI. Although Alec regrets this incident terribly, he is thankful that there was no accident and that no one was hurt. Because this matter is still pending, we cannot comment further publicly at this time."

The incident comes at a particularly bad time for Ogletree — just before the NFL Combine begins in Indianapolis on Feb. 23. It is also the second off-field issue for Ogletree, who was suspended last season for Georgia's first four games after registering a positive drug test.

Despite missing those four games, Ogletree still led Georgia with 111 total tackles and recorded 10 or more tackles in eight of the 10 games in which he played. He is one of the top linebackers available in this year's NFL Draft and has been projected to be selected in the middle of the first round.
