A police spokeswoman said Sunday that a Transportation Security Administration officer spotted the knife on an X-ray machine monitor as Connor was trying to enter an airport terminal at 9 a.m. Saturday.

Police were called and the 27-year-old Connor, of Charlotte, N.C., was arrested and charged with possession of an offensive weapon. The police spokeswoman said he was released on his own recognizance.

Giants spokesman Pat Hanlon said team officials were aware of the situation and have spoken to Connor, “who is cooperating with the authorities in Philadelphia.”

Connor played for the Dallas Cowboys last season.
