Suspended NFL defensive lineman Johnny Jolly has been arrested on drug charges for the fourth time, according to the Houston Chronicle.
Jolly, who played for the Packers from 2006 through 2009, was arrested Saturday and charged with possession of a narcotic compound containing codeine and other substances. He also was charged with concealing codeine while he was being investigated on Saturday.
Per court record, Jolly remained in jail on Sunday.
Jolly’s legal issues have centered primarily on codeine-laced cough syrup, which is mixed with soda to form a concoction known by various teams, like “purple drank” and “lean.”
It’s unclear whether the Packers still retain Jolly’s rights. We’ve asked the team for clarification.
UPDATE 3:46 p.m. ET: The Packers have confirmed that Jolly remains on the team’s “Reserve/Suspended by Commissioner” list. In other words, he’s still a member of the team.
