Honestly, this has little to do with football, but I laughed my ass off when I saw this photo, which comes to us from graffiti artist Jason Rubacky. Of course, it immediately reminded me of the dumbest guy in the room, Green Bay Packers defensive end Johnny Jolly, who was twice busted for codeine possession.
A lot of people seem to think the Green Bay Packers have a hole to fill on their defensive line, with defensive end Cullen Jenkins expected to depart in free agency and Johnny Jolly making stupid decisions somewhere in Houston. Football Outsiders named defensive line as the team’s biggest post-draft hole and several experts suggested it was the Packers’ biggest need going into the draft.
The only thing that’s certain when Ted Thompson is at the helm of the Green Bay Packers draft is uncertainty. Thompson is rarely predictable, but looking at the statistics, some patterns do emerge. For example, Thompson likes drafting wide receivers. In his six drafts as general manager, Thompson has chosen eight receivers, the most of […]
Green Bay Packers defensive lineman Johnny Jolly will get probation after pleading guilty to his 2008 drug possession charge as part of a plea deal. Jolly was accused of possessing more than 200 grams of codeine, which is used in the popular drink purple drank, a combination of cough syrup, Jolly Ranchers and soda. A […]
There’s speculation Johnny Jolly’s second arrest for codeine possession, which put his NFL career in serious jeopardy, will force the Green Bay Packers to reevaluate re-signing defensive end Cullen Jenkins. Jenkins, who had seven sacks in 11 games in 2010, will be one of the most sought-after defensive free agents whenever free agency begins.
Somehow, I think we all knew this wouldn’t end well. Green Bay Packers defensive end Johnny Jolly, who’s currently serving an indefinite suspension from the NFL and awaiting trial for felony possession of codeine, was arrested early this morning. He was caught with 600 grams of codeine in his vehicle.
The good news is this. Suspended Green Bay Packers defensive end Johnny Jolly is working out. The bad news is, he’s not any smarter than he used to be. Jolly is working out in Houston with former Oakland Raiders quarterback JaMarcus Russell. That’s right, arguably the biggest draft bust of all time.
The sheen of winning Super Bowl XLV hasn’t quite worn off, but the Green Bay Packers front office is going to have to make some important offseason decisions very soon. The biggest of those may be what to do with defensive end Cullen Jenkins. Jenkins enters the offseason without a contract and the Packers didn’t […]
Green Bay Packers defensive end Cullen Jenkins is not the kind of guy who makes a scene… unless he wants a new contract. Ah yes, it’s that time of year. Or at least it’s that time of year for Jenkins — the season of discontent. Jenkins is in the final year of his contract and […]
The weather man was wrong. It’s sunny and 85 degrees about an hour before practice. Quick observations: – There is a lot of talk here in Green Bay on the Brett Favre retirement. My thoughts — he stays retired until September 9th when, while mowing the lawn, he decides to drive the lawnmower to the […]
Suspended Green Bay Packers defensive end Johnny Jolly has accepted a plea deal in his felony drug possession case. The charges against Jolly will be dismissed if he stays out of trouble for a year and completes several objectives as part of a pre-trial diversion program. He was facing up to 20 years in prison […]
Green Bay Packers defensive end Johnny Jolly reportedly tested positive multiple times under the league’s substance abuse policy, prompting his indefinite suspension by NFL commissioner Roger Goodell. That was the word from Packers beat reporter Jason Wilde, who appeared on The Miller Lite Football Show on Sunday. “[Jolly] was already in the program and he […]
