WPVI-TV reports TSA agents spotted the knife in the luggage of the 27-year-old Connor, a Philly native, as he was going through a terminal.
The police were then called and Connor was taken into custody, where he was released on his own recognisance. He reportedly has been charged with possession of an offensive weapon.
A sixth-year NFL veteran, Connor signed with the Giants in March following a stint with the Cowboys in 2012. He’s not expected to face any league discipline for the incident.
