    I'm surprised that possession of codeine is a felony. I thought it was just a painkiller used by dentists, and not really a recreational drug. It's not a drug I associate with addiction or the illegal drug trade, but then, I don't know much about this stuff. I'm a long way from writing off Jolly. We'll see what happens.

    He had quite a bit Greg. I hope it works out somehow, but the Commish may be the ultimate factor.

    It can be used as a painkiller, but large amounts can be used just to "Get High".

    Ted's got to do the right thing here and release Jolly. It's already a circus. We don't need this.

    I think the Packers are going to sit back and see how this plays out. At worst, I see Jolly getting a 4 game suspension considering this really is his first trouble he's been in since the NFL. Knowing his lawyers and if he doesn't have much of a criminal record, they'll probably do everything they can to keep him out of jail, although it will probably mean at least a minimum of a couple years probation, community service, and a hefty fine.

    If Texas is like most states if he pleads to a felony he is doing at least a couple months in jail with a couple of years probation. (assuming he has no prior felonies).

    With the time frame of the Court process and possible probable cause issues to challenge, this may not be decided until after the season.

    My guess is he is long gone from our team if he pleads or is found guilty of a felony.

    Remember most players around the league that get in trouble with substances are the result of:

    1. Dirty UAs
    2. Misdemeanor Drugs; or
    3. DWIs.

    Not felony drug charges.

    When I first read this, I thought it said "cocaine" (that's what you get working nights). 200 grams of codeine could be excusable... I say wait and see how it plays out. It's not like TT seems adverse to letting twice-convicted criminals on the team anayways (that "Packer People BS went out the window with the addition of K-Rob). Seriously... Who uses codeine to get high besides hardcore junkies and high school kids?

    It was a stupid thing for Jolly to do, if he comes back or not I dont know I've never been too high on Jolly anyway. I think he is good, but he can be replaced.

    I agree CYoung. He dug his own grave. He's run of the mill, alot of other guys now have a better chance to step up. Conrad Bolston, Muir, Malone, Cole have a better chance of making the team and/or starting.

    Has Jolly been in trouble before? Goodell is pretty good about second chances. There are no thirds though...

    Wasn't this very similar to the charge Kiel got when the Chargers released him. I believe he ended up getting the charges dropped by doing some kind of volunteer work.

    I bet Tarvaris Jackson just sighed a breath of relief... ;)

    With 200 grams of codeine, Jolly will be high on all of you.

    200 grams is a lot of drug. Any drug. It is just over 7 ounces. Figure a Tylenol 3 has 30 milligrams of codeine in it. This is more like a painkiller addiction but we shall see. But he is still in deep trouble.

    I liked him too. Oh well. If he gets tried and is guilty then cut him.

    Maybe an epidemic has broken out in Green Bay

    Seriously, i would be scared to get caught with 5 pills of illegal codeine in my car.

    I mean, how could that not be intent to distribute. If you took 10 pills EVERY DAY, that supply would last you almost 4 years.................

    If he could profit a few bucks off of each pill thats like 35,000.00 Probably safe to assume thats not all the drugs he has and not the only time in his life he ever had drugs in his possession. He only makes 300k per year, not millions per year like many of them. So an "easy" 25-30k every couple of months would not be out the question. See Nate Newton.

    you do know Favre was addicted to this right? So we should just drop Favre a few years back too right. I mean Teds got to the right thing here.
