GREEN BAY - Imagine a prospect being interviewed by Packers GM Ted Thompson and others at the NFL combine, and Thompson notices a tattoo on a player's arm.
He then calls over a Packers-hired police expert to study the body art to see if there's something of a criminal element involved.
That's what CBS's Bruce Feldman is reporting could happen.
