If there was any glimmer of hope, the one in a million, slimmest of chances that suspended Packers defensive end Johnny Jolly would return to the NFL following his third drug related arrest this past March, that would have seemed to have gone out the door on Saturday.
According to the Houston Chronicle, Jolly is facing his fourth drug possession charge following his newest arrest over the weekend.
“Jolly was charged with possession of a narcotic compound containing codeine and other substances, a felony,” writes Zain Shauk of the Chronicle. “He was also charged with a felony of concealing codeine while he was being investigated on Saturday. He was in the Harris County Jail on Sunday, according to court records.”
Jolly is currently serving a suspension of indeterminate length. Cheesehead TV’s Aaron Nagler has been told by an NFL representative that Jolly’s suspended status hasn’t changed after his third arrest in March.
