    Holy **** thats a long time. Lets hope he beats the wrap and can get away with a first offense ruling from Goodell.

    With good behavior we could have him back on the 2015 roster though. so we got that going for us.

    I'm not to worried YET. You will be surprised at what the maximum sentences to some felonies are. Just because it is the maximum sentence, doesn't mean it will necessarily be anywhere near that long of a sentence if they charge him.

    After reading that, I noticed that there are a lot of big if's.

    What drug was he caught with and what does it do? It seems to me like it's a prescription drug which you'd think would be better, but who knows. Sucks because this guy would bat one ball down at the line a game.

    He was caught with a large quantity of codeine, which is a prescription pain killer, but is heavily abused in college and inner city circles by making Purple Drank.

    Correct. The max and min sentences are guidelines for the sentencing judge or jury, not absolutes.

    Purple Drank is sizzurp. Does that clear things up? ;)

    It's a party drink that usually contains codeine and promethazine. It was first made really popular in the Texas/southern hip-hop scene. Jolly is from Texas.

    Curse you Texas. Why didn't you secede from the nation when you had the chance?

    yeah i realize he probably wont get maxiumum sentence. but if 20 years is maximum i dont wanna see minimum because even if its 6 months to a year or something... that still rules him out of our plans.


    so yeah you might wanna get worried.

    Possession of prescription drugs without a prescription from a doctor is a felony. Especially pain killers. Just 1 pill the size of an aspirin can get you a felony charge.

    As a comparison marijuana is only a misdemeanor in most states in quantities less than an ounce.

    Thanks for the info, I'm always happy to learn new things. I wouldn't compare anything to Cannabis though because it's in such a gray area now legally. Most other drugs have felony possessions.

    You would think that the young men who get the opportunity to play a professional sport would see that anything drug related is a bad career move and they would avoid it at all costs. His salary may not be record breaking but he would be looking at a bigger pay day when his current contract expired.

    Um. Because they tried to and didn't succeed. Remember the Civil War?

    You'd think, but he is a DT, and DTs generally have the lowest Wonderlic scores.

    Those guessing Purple Drank were right.

    After reading that and knowing that Jolly will probably get a decent attorney, I doubt he'll get an intent to distribute. That said, he'll probably still see some kind of jail time plus probation/community service.
