Green Bay Packers DE Johnny Jolly had a lot of time to think about his 2008 arrest that led to his being suspended by the National Football League for all of the 2010 season. Unfortunately, he didn't seem to spend that time wisely.
Jolly was pulled over for a traffic violation, and police determined that his driver's license had been suspended. When police searched the car, they found 600 grams of codeine, which is a felony
The Green Bay Packers said they would have no comment on the report.
In August 2010, Jolly agreed to spend a year on a pretrial diversion program, after which his felony drug possession charge would be dismissed.
Packer blog Acme Packing Company says "Don't expect Johnny Jolly in green and gold in 2011, this could be the end." It was not clear if Jolly had applied to reinstatement but the NFL lockout means no players would be reinstated until its end regardless.
