Lock up your medicine cabinet! Former Green Bay Packers defensive lineman Johnny Jolly is on the street again.
Jolly was granted shock probation today after serving six months of a six-year sentence for codeine possession. Jolly will be on probation for 10 years and have to perform 200 hours of community service.
Shock probation is available to first-time offenders and allows them to be released early after experiencing the shock and trauma of jail.
So, does this mean Jolly will get to play in the NFL again? Well, they let Michael Vick put on a uniform again, so it could happen. As far as we know, the Packers still own Jolly’s rights.
That being said, we’d be real surprised if he showed up on a football field this season.
