Apparently they ran up a bar tab worth 50,000 British pounds and didn’t wanna pay it.
Trouble flared after they were accused of trying to leave the London Reign Showclub without paying their tab yesterday.
The players, who earn an average of £43,000 a week, squared up to bouncers outside the nightspot.
They sank champagne, starting at £450 bottle, and vodka.
The source went on: “The total bill was in the region of £50,000 and some of the lads tried to leave the club but were prevented from doing so by security.
“Things got pretty heated and there was a lot of swearing and shouting and things became physical. In terms of preparation for their match, you couldn’t think of anything worse.”
Four men in their 20s were arrested for fraud by the Met Police. They were released after nine hours in custody. It is understood the club dropped the complaint after the bill was settled.
The Sun doesn’t actually name the players, but Black Sports Online lists them as Barry Church, DJ Hayden, Ronnie Harrison, and Jarrod Wilson.

Church is the team’s starting strong safety. The other three are secondary backups. Harrison and Wilson were expected to play due to injuries to A.J. Bouye and Tyler Patmon. Hayden was listed as doubtful on the latest injury report.
If these guys are presumably inactive tomorrow, Carson Wentz should throw for at least a million yards.
Just got statement from @Jaguars on incident here in London @ActionNewsJax @ActionSportsJax “We are aware that 4 of our players were detained over restitution of a bill. The matter is being resolved and the players are with the team. Any discipline will be handled internally.”

I think the best course of action is for these four players to sit out the Eagles game and reflect on what they did.
