Barret Robbins, the former Raiders center best remembered for deserting the team on the eve of the Super Bowl, and for later going public about his struggles with mental illness, has been released from prison.
Robbins was released on Tuesday morning from the Dade Correctional Institute, where he has spent the past year and a half after a drug-related probation violation. Robbins became upset when the Miami CBS affiliate approached him and asked whether he’d be able to stay off drugs now that he was free.
“I’m not worried about that and that’s not anybody’s business but mine. That’s something I’ll deal with myself,” Robbins said. “You know what, cancel this, erase this. Erase what you got, I don’t want any part of this s–t.”
Robbins was placed on probation after he pleaded guilty in 2005 to five charges, including attempted murder, over a fight with three police officers.
