Drug charges dropped against Kevin Ellison

A year ago, Kevin Ellison had finished his first season in the NFL.  Appearing in 13 games for the Chargers and starting nine, Ellison had a bright future in the NFL.

Then, he was arrested with 100 Vicodin pills and zero prescriptions.

The Chargers thereafter cut him loose, the Seahawks gave him a chance, and his former college coach, Pete Carroll, cut the cord before the start of the regular season.

Out of football in 2010, the charges against Ellison have been dropped, according to Kevin Acee of the San Diego Union-Tribune.

He says he wants chance to rejoin the NFL and “show teams who I am again.”
