NFL Cleveland Browns’ offensive tackle Greg Robinson and CFL Montreal Alouettes’s free-agent wide receiver Quan Bray were arrested for allegedly possessing 157 pounds of marijuana.
They were arrested at the Sierra Blanca border checkpoint near the U.S. and Mexico border this week.
An official statement from the Department of Justice in the Western District of Texas, provided by ESPN’s Adam Schefter, alleges that Robinson and Bray stored 157 pounds of marijuana inside several large duffle bags in the rear cargo area of a vehicle they were driving.
On Monday evening, the defendants approached the Sierra Blanca Checkpoint Station, where a unit of U.S. Border Patrol canine alerted on their vehicle.
Upon subsequent inspection, they were found to be possessing approximately 157 pounds of marijuana. They have been charged with conspiracy to possession with intent to distribute marijuana. If found guilty, they could face up to 20 years in prison.
Tom Pelissero of the NFL Network said the Browns had no intention of re-signing 27-year-old Robinson.
Robinson’s poor play on the field along with his arrest by the border will not do any good for him in the NFL.
Bray, Robinson’s alleged partner, played his college football at Auburn. He bounced around the NFL with three different teams before playing for Montreal Alouettes in the Canadian Football League.
