Report: Browns’ Greg Robinson arrested by U.S. Border Patrol with a lot of marijuana
The 2019 NFL season was not a fun one for those within the Cleveland Browns organization. Unfortunately, the offseason has not been much better for tackle Greg Robinson.
According to TMZ Sports, Robinson has been arrested at the border after being caught with marijuana:
We’re told Robinson was stopped on Monday at the Sierra Blanca border checkpoint near the U.S., Mexico border. We’re still working on the details surrounding the arrest.
The report adds that the Browns lineman is still in custody and may be facing federal charges.
Jail records show Robinson is still in custody and we’re told he’s facing a federal charge of possession with intent to distribute.
Robinson was the former No. 2 overall pick in the 2014 NFL Draft by the then-St. Louis Rams following a stellar career at Auburn. However, he largely struggled to develop into the anchor of this offensive line and was never able to quite find his footing before eventually joining the Browns.
Although Robinson made it to the relocation to Los Angeles, it was not long before he was on his way out of town after the Rams declined to pick up his fifth-year option and was ultimately traded to the Detroit Lions in exchange for a sixth-round pick. He was ultimately waived by Detroit before signing on as a backup in Cleveland.
Robinson did not have much better luck during his stint with the Browns and his underwhelming play indicates that he was not necessarily a priority for them this offseason. Unfortunately, it appears he may have some much bigger problems on his hands.
