Yahoo - Former NFL offensive tackle Greg Robinson was arrested after police in Thibodaux, Louisiana, said they found large amounts of drugs in his possession during a car stop Monday evening.
Robinson, 29, has been charged with felony possession with intent to distribute cocaine, crack cocaine, hydrocodone, marijuana, Xanax and methamphetamine, Thibodaux police said.
A search of those properties turned up about $120,810 worth of drugs, police said, including over 3 pounds of crystal meth, 2.2 pounds of cocaine, nearly 40 pounds of marijuana, 4 grams of crack cocaine, 227 doses of hydrocodone, 48 doses of oxycodone and 18 doses of alprazolam, which is a generic form of Xanax.
Police said they also seized a large assortment of drug paraphernalia, firearm magazines and ammunition and a small amount of cash.
Robinson was the No. 2 overall pick by the St. Louis Rams in the 2014 NFL draft out of Auburn. He then played for the Detroit Lions in 2017 and for the Cleveland Browns in 2018-19.
Robinson was arrested on drug charges in Texas in 2020 after federal agents said they found 157 pounds of marijuana in a rented vehicle in which he and two other people were riding.
Greg Robinson is good at football. So good in fact he went 2nd overall in the 2014 draft. He played on a few different teams, understandably, but was a starter for the entire 2019 in Cleveland.
He also isn't poor. Upon being drafted he signed a $21 million deal with a $13.79 million signing bonus. That's so many millions of dollars.
But the dude LOVES selling drugs. Loves it. Millions of dollars in the bank but his true passion was never football, no, it is distributing a shit ton of drugs to anyone and everyone like the candy man in Willy Wonka. And he didn't discriminate whatsoever. A little pot for the lightweights, some meth for the more drug acclimated clientele. Xanys for the white kids in the suburbs, and some crack cocaine for dessert. The full spectrum.
And all of this comes after he was arrested in 2020 for 157 pounds of weed. You were the 2nd overall pick, dude. Find a hobby that isn't drug distribution? Take up bowling. My friend Carl loves bowling, he woulda gone with you. Or play poker. Richard Seymour has become a sick poker player in retirement. Literally any hobby is better than driving around with an El Chapo amount of drugs. What a shame.
PS: Can't be a worse feeling than getting pulled over and knowing you have all of that on you. I don't think the "it's not mine, I'm holding it for a friend" excuse works when you have 3 pounds of Heisenberg's finest blue in the trunk. Damn I miss that show.
