Robert Sormanti of Warwick, R.I., 47, was cuffed by state police, who said they also nabbed 13 others in the sting, which began when a new law went into effect banning indoor prostitution in the state.
Sormanti was one of the johns who tried to cash in on sex with a prostitute, law enforcement officials said.
Sormanti is one of the players behind Pat the Patriot, the American flag-decorated mascot for the Super Bowl-winning football team.
He's facing up to a year in prison and a $1,000 fine.
