The good news for Packers defensive lineman Johnny Jolly? It looks like his trial on drug-possession charges in Houston finally will start.
The bad news? Greg Bedard of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports that the process begins on the first day of his team’s training camp.
Jolly would face no fines or other potential consequences if he doesn’t sign his restricted free agent tender, which he has yet to accept. But as Bedard points out, the Packers also can withdraw the tender.
A four-year veteran, Jolly has started every game in each of the past two seasons.
