Another NFL Player Guilty of a Felony

Should the NFL be called the Numerous Felony League? Another NFL player has pleaded guilty to felony charges.
San Diego Chargers Safety Terrence Kiel has pleaded guilty to felony and misdemeanor drug charges for shipping codeine-based cough syrup to Texas. As part of a plea bargain, Kiel has to undergo counseling for gambling and do 100 hours of volunteer work, including talking to young people about the dangers of drug use.
If Kiel abides by his plea bargain, he will avoid jail time, and be placed on probation.
Shouldn't these guys already be doing community service? The 100 hours of volunteer work is not a sentence.
