PHILADELPHIA (AP) - New York Giants linebacker Dan Connor is on track to resolve a criminal case for having a switchblade in his luggage at the Philadelphia airport.

Connor is scheduled to enter a pre-trial diversion program in which his record would be expunged if he stays out of trouble.

Michael Diamondstein, a lawyer for the 27-year-old, says the four-inch switchblade was a gag gift. He says Connor had no idea the knife was in his carry-on when he went to the airport on July 6 on his way to a wedding in Pittsburgh.

Connor was not in court Tuesday. His next hearing is Aug. 16.

The former Penn State All-American has also played for the Carolina Panthers and Dallas Cowboys.

He grew up in Wallingford, near Philadelphia. Court records list his current residence as Nutley, N.J.
