Cleveland offensive tackle Greg Robinson found himself arrested earlier this week at a U.S. Border Patrol checkpoint because marijuana was found in his vehicle. The former Auburn standout was facing a charge of possession with intent to distribute.
He was not only caught with a ridiculous amount of marijuana, but he tried unsuccessfully to get a guy in the vehicle to take the charge for him.
TMZ Sports explains:
“TMZ Sports has learned that Greg Robinson was busted with 156.9 pounds of marijuana, according to law enforcement docs.
Robinson — who was also with ex-NFL player Quan Bray — were stopped around 7:15 PM on Monday evening after a Border Patrol drug sniffing dog alerted to the rear cargo door of their 2020 Chevy Tahoe.
The agents performed a follow up search, and located several vacuum sealed black bags full of a green leafy substance.
Border Patrol tested the substance and it came back positive for marijuana.
BP says they also found 23 mason jars, a can sealing machine, an electronic scale, and $3,100 in cash in Bray’s jeans.
There was a third person in the SUV — who was not charged — who told agents that during the stop Robinson tried to get them to take the fall for the weed.”
Robinson played his second season in Cleveland on a one-year contract in 2019, and the Browns already had informed his representatives that the NFL team didn’t plan to attempt to re-sign him, according to Cleveland.com.
The second player picked in the 2014 NFL Draft played in 15 games and made 14 starts at left offensive tackle in 2019.
