Johnny Jolly denied bond, will remain in jail for next three weeks

Johnny Jolly AP

MDS mentioned Tuesday that Packers defensive tackle Johnny Jolly would have to remain in jail until his court appearance on Wednesday, at the very earliest.

It turns out he will be remaining in jail for a while.

Jolly was denied bond again Wednesday following his latest drug charge.  That means he’ll stay in jail until at least April 20, the date of his next appearance.

Packers coach Mike McCarthy was previously open to welcoming Jolly back into the fold in 2011, but his career in Green Bay should be over now.  Jolly was suspended for all of the 2010 season for previous infractions involving codeine.

    He deserves everything that will happen to him. There comes a point where you need to give it up.

    I’m guessing Johnny isn’t so Jolly lately.

    Life is hard when you’re stupid.

    It’s one thing to be an addict, for Jolly to get high off of codeine and get caught doing it multiple times. But this guy is clearly into the distribution network. Those numbers don’t lie. He’s a talented football player, and he threw away a lucrative career to be a drug dealer.

    I mean, how much codeine would this guy need to move in order to make what he would have made in signing bonus alone if he stayed away from the stuff?

    Hmmm…a story about a Packer’s legal troubles. Time for a gaggle of comments about what lowlifes the Vikings are.

    Every team has the occasional bad apple or two. Packer fans recognize this. We also like to give you Viking fans a hard time because the Vikings seem to have more then their fair share of bad apples.

    or the book that MountainDolt wrote and keeps reposting.

    i LOVE that book! and this song by warvette:

    No-one Likes Minnesota
    by warvette

    there are many reasons why no-one likes minnesota

    near-bear and dead dear, minnesotans party hardy
    vikings sure do make you snore, can hear you through your trailer door
    tie-dyed shirts and hiking boots: the standard uniform you wear
    i hope your hippie ass gets eaten by a punkrock grizzly bear

    there’s more reasons why i don’t like minnesota
    there’s many reasons nobody likes minnesota

    minnesotans pride themselves on being the outdoorsy type
    they go outside to use the potty- even jesse the governing body
    that reminds me of some of the minnesotans i do not adore
    the vikings, twinkies, timberwolves and goofy-looking craig kilborn
    bad haircuts and bad ideas, and self-important to the core
    all along the watchtower was purple rain, need i say more?

    there’s many reasons why i don’t like minnesota
    how can anybody stand minnesota?

    cuz if you travel far and wide, and tan your pale minnesotan hide
    and get some culture inside ya- you’d stop being a little canada

    there’s a lot more reasons no-one likes minnesota

    your state is flatter than wisconsin, you ain’t got no rolling hills
    and you lost four superbowls: you may as well be the buffalo bills
    have you seen the gold and green smashing through your tv screen?
    indoor football go away, and take minnesota wit ya, hey!

    i don’t like minnesota
    i don’t like minnesota
    i don’t like minnesota
    no-one likes minnesota

    Cocaine, not codiene*

  13. mick730 says: Mar 30, 2011 2:55 PM

    Come on guys, don’t be so hard on poor Johnny. He only had two choices in life; prison or life as a slave in the NFL. Prison was by far the best choice. NFL slavery is heinous.

    here comes mountaindont with his canned Vikings hate that he posts on every article he reads

    —————————————————–

    Jolly was suspended by the league, he was not during that time and is not now a member of the Green bay Packers. He was not allowed at any team functions, he was not allowed on team property, he had no interaction with the team. He was not on any roster, received no paychecks and was put in limbo. He was not allowed on the sideline and won’t receive a superbowl ring

    Nice try, now go back and wallow in your misery that is the Vikings

    Nice logic. So if a Packer gets suspended he’s not really a Packer because he’s suspended.

    It’s odd that just a few days ago Mike McCarthy was saying Jolly was in the team’s plans for this season. Why would he say that about somebody who has absolutely no connection to the Packers?

    It’s not just got to do with the Packers, that’s the case for any team. McCarthey can say all he wants about future plans, but until Goodell lifts the suspension he can’t be any part of any team.

    That’s why Jolly’s restricted status was also put in limbo for 1 yr and didn’t count…..suspended means in limbo, not a part of, unable to participate with………do you understand that?

    My gosh you Viking fans just have to grasp at any little thing to try to smear the Packers………..You guys had supposedly the perfect setup to go to the superbowl and every little bit of it blew up in your face………..you have no stadium 9just a broken down rental, No QB and the oldest team in the league…deal with it…just wait til they won’t be able to sign Adrian back after next year……….

    That’s funny, NFL.COM shows a Johnny Jolly on the Green Bay Packers’ roster. Must be somebody else by the same name.

    Hmmm, poor guy must not be bright enough to use the tried and true “don’t you know who I am” tactic on the judge.
    Probably would of worked.

  21. keramidas21 says: Mar 31, 2011 12:30 AM

    This is a shame. Jolly was a great player. I’m sure Minnesota will enjoy his purple drank.

  22. goombar2 says: Mar 31, 2011 3:36 AM

    Well, NFL.com is wrong. He’s not on the Packer roster. Can’t be according to the commish… He’s not getting a Super Bowl ring, he can not talk to the Packers (management or players at the facilities) and can not hang around the facilities.

    My personal feeling about that is that it is wrong. If the NFL is really concerned with getting some of these guys real help, why wouldn’t you let them hang around coaches and players that might mentor or give support?

    It really is one of the dumbest things the NFL does.

    But has he been officially released from his Packers contract? Not arguing, just wondering….. So if he were to get out of jail and be reinstated, would the Packers still hold the rights to him, or is he a FA?

    —————————————————-

    Technically yes the team still has rights to him and is technically a member of the team when he is a member of the league. Right now though he is not a member of the league so all that is in limbo right now, and seems it will stay that way until they release him.

    Since this latest thing happened after the CBA expired, I am not sure if the team can even release him right now. I have a feeling one of the first things we read after this crap gets worked out is that the Packers have released Johnny Jolly because if they aren’t granting him bail, he most likely is going away for awhile.

  25. goombar2 says: Apr 3, 2011 1:13 AM

    He’s not under contract. We don’t pay him a dime nor are we fined by the league, nor does he take a roster spot.

    Think of it like Bo Jackson and Tampa Bay. Tampa had the rights but Bo never played nor did he get a check from them. After a year he could be drafted again so the rules are slightly different…

    Jolly was tagged last year and since he didn’t play he didn’t accrue any time toward being a FA. It’s highly unlikely the Pack wants him back and even more unlikely that for the next probably 3-4 years he could even suit up (after his jail time and the commish would have to reinstate).

  26. brewdogg says: Apr 4, 2011 7:18 PM

    Okay, that’s what I was wondering. I’m sure he won’t play for the Packers again, or for anyone else for that matter, but I was wondering how that would play out.

    Here’s a question…. Since he was a member of the NFLPA and hasn’t officially retired, is he still part of the NFLPA? Or whatever they are now…. I suppose everyone will have to sign back up after they reform the PA, which gives them the excuse to remove him without him filing the paperwork for it….

    Now I’m just rambling….
