Cleveland Browns player, Gregory Robinson, was arrested for possessing 157 pounds of marijuana in a rental car. Robinson also had Jaquan Bray in the vehicle while crossing the border. They are both being charged with conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute marijuana and possession intent to distribute. If the two are convicted they could face up to twenty years in jail.
The two were approaching the Sierra Blanca Checkpoint Station when a canine unit alerted the border patrol agents to their rental car. During the investigation of the car the found approximately 157 pounds of marijuana in multiple duffle bags in the trunk.
Robinson arranged for an Uber driver to drive them. But then pulled over in El Paso and had Bray switch. He then stated he would pay the two to claim the marijuana. The two then told Robinson they would not have driven if they had known about the drugs.
Robinson was set to become an unrestricted free agent. The Browns had no intentions of re-sign him so his next steps are uncertain. Especially in this case because his possible charges could seriously affect his career in the NFL. Bray is also awaiting the decision of his college football team.
The border patrol said they found twenty three mason jars, a can sealing machine, an electronic sale, and 3,100 in cash in Bray’s jeans. Robinson and Bray are both facing up to twenty years in jail.
While Robinson’s career will be majorly affected, Bray’s won’t be. Bray never really caught on to any team in the NFL. He most recently was playing for the Montreal Alouettes. Robinson was supposedly informed the Brown’s will not be bringing him back for the 2020 season. For Robinson his NFL career is over.
