Report: Texans rookies were cut for smoking pot

Pot Getty Images

In a development that will surprise no one, the Texans players who were unceremoniously cut by the team in the wake of Sunday’s loss to the Chiefs had been caught doing something that plenty of players do.

According to Tania Ganguli of ESPN.com, the rules violation committed by Sam MontgomeryCierre Wood, and Willie Jefferson consisted of the three men smoking marijuana.

Ganguli cites three unnamed sources in support of the report.

“I don’t understand why they did it,” linebacker Brooks Reed said.  (It’s unclear whether he was corroborating the report of pot smoking or referring generally to them being cut.)  “They had the opportunity of their lives and they just kind of threw it away.  I don’t have too much to say about it.  It’s really unfortunate.  We lost a lot of depth for that game.  They were great players and they had a lot of potential.  We’re just going to find more guys that are more dedicated to the cause.”

Agent Chad Cannon, who represents Jefferson, said that the men were smoking a cigar.  Presumably containing tobacco.

“We’re discussing the possibility of filing a grievance,” Cannon said.  “I need to be in touch with them and really figure if that’s the best route to take.”

It may not be the best route because fighting the decision to cut the players could make it harder for them to get jobs with other NFL teams.  And it could prompt the Texans to release evidence contradicting the claim that it was a cigar.  Presumably containing tobacco.

Montgomery was a third-round pick.  Jefferson and Wood were undrafted.  All three reportedly were unclaimed through the waivers process.

Which could make it harder for them to buy more cigars.  Presumably containing tobacco.

    Oh for the good ol’ days when players cheated on their wives on road trips.

  2. beavertonsteve says: Oct 22, 2013 10:08 PM

    It was just a cigar…

    …and JaMarcus Russell was just drinking grape soda…

    Somebody will be desperate enough to give Montgomery another shot. Hopefully this time he doesn’t blow it.

  4. gloryfromheaven says: Oct 22, 2013 10:10 PM

    Eww, Smoking pot is grossy

  5. mackcarrington says: Oct 22, 2013 10:12 PM

    For those who don’t know: The practice is to hollow the tobacco out of the center of a cigar and replace it with weed. They call that a “blunt”.

  6. brownsalwaysrebuilding says: Oct 22, 2013 10:12 PM

    Don’t criticize, legalize.

    Funny how they probably had other players doing the same thing in the past but when you’re losing you have to find the scapegoat cuz management can’t blame themselves

  9. kinggator says: Oct 22, 2013 10:13 PM

    Where there is smoke, there is fired!

  10. joenash72 says: Oct 22, 2013 10:13 PM

    They should come play here in Seattle.

    Blunts are legal here ;-)

    Just ask Richard Sherman……….

    as far as nfl legalese goes I imagine these two are fine provided that they did not turn over the contents of the cigar to whomever found them

  22. 4ever85 (aka Butch DeadLift) says: Oct 22, 2013 10:29 PM

    Right, because 3 grown men always sit around and share a cigar. I guess they’re too poor to afford 3 cigars [end sarcasm].

    Oh the hypocrisy, Broncos front office gets drunk and hits squad car and its boys being boys, slap on the wrist. Players get DUI and its a shirt suspension, slap on the wrist. But if a guy wants to smoke a joint and eat some Cheetos everyone loses their minds. Firing these men for such an infraction is a travesty.

  26. jbaxt says: Oct 22, 2013 10:33 PM

    Von Miller is flabbergasted.

  27. tyler4richardson says: Oct 22, 2013 10:34 PM

    Hahahahahahaha. It used to be a cigar until they gutted the tobacco and filled it with weed. At least that’s how I do it.

  28. mikejr80 says: Oct 22, 2013 10:34 PM

    When you’re a professional you have to put away childish acts. Enough with the weed already

    More fool the Texans.

  30. undeadjesus says: Oct 22, 2013 10:35 PM

    These guys were probably on the bubble already and this is a convenient excuse for the team to cut them. If they had any shot of contributing, they wouldn’t have been cut.

  31. drgreenstreak says: Oct 22, 2013 10:39 PM

    So, no career because they can’t follow rules.

    However, if you use HGH, steroids, stimulants and meth, you’ll get another chance.
    Why?
    Because those substances are used to enhance performance rather than unwind and relax as with cannabis.

    Yet, out of all those banned substances, only one has never caused physical damage or it’s use EVER resulted in death.

    Guess which one.

  32. drgreenstreak says: Oct 22, 2013 10:39 PM

    and BTW… DRINK UP!

  33. bh83 says: Oct 22, 2013 10:41 PM

    It will be strange when marihuana is legal in a state with an NFl team and a player on that team gets cut or suspended for a legal substance that you don’t need a prescription for.

  34. blacknole08 says: Oct 22, 2013 10:42 PM

    I support legalization, but if this is tru, these guys are morons. U are living the dream as an NFL player. On top of that, YOU GET TESTED!!

    What were they thinking?

    Oh my Goodness!! They were smoking that evil herb POT?? Wow! NFL is right, they should persuade them all to drink Vodka and beer cause obviously, those are not drugs, dont affect judgement, people dont get killed, is great for health, and it does not make people act like idiots and create violence like that killer of a drug marijuana!

  43. trbowman says: Oct 22, 2013 10:51 PM

    Legalize it, man.

    The anti-drug warriors like to ignore the fact that alcohol is a drug one that has proven quite dangerous at that. Oh and lest we forget caffeine is a drug too, and most of you are chemically dependent on it as you need your “morning Joe” to function. Wonder why you get headaches when you miss your caffeine dose? That’s withdrawal, and it’s because you’re not getting your fix. Basic stuff here.

  44. socalraider909 says: Oct 22, 2013 10:54 PM

    It’s to bad like he said they had an opportunity of a lifetime people would kill just to make it to the NFL but these kids along with most people these days need to put the pot down and just simply get a life

  45. trbowman says: Oct 22, 2013 10:55 PM

    The gateway drug theory was invented because the myths the DEA and company were trying to pass about marijuana proved blantantly false. They’re essentially admitting it’s a benign drug themselves, but they have to justify its legal status because it “leads to deadly drugs.”

    Nonsense. Furthermore, alcohol would be the king of gateway drugs. It’s legal and readily available to anyone who wants it. Part of the reason alcohol was legalized was due to the poor state of the economy and Uncle Sam wanting to tax us (oh, and prohibition didn’t work).

    The sorry state of the economy actually works in marijuana’s favor. It’s going to be hard for the government to resist legalization when it can be taxed to hell. And you know they want to tax you to hell.

  46. mtr75 says: Oct 22, 2013 10:55 PM

    Cigar? It’s called a blunt.

  47. waxthat says: Oct 22, 2013 10:59 PM

  48. ialdrich1214 says: Oct 22, 2013 11:00 PM

    Three men do not share one cigar filled with tobacco.

  49. trbowman says: Oct 22, 2013 11:01 PM

    Still, these guys are morons. Don’t crap where you eat. Cigars, LOL good one. Sell that story somewhere else. My over 90 grandmother could tell you the average cigar and marijuana smell distinctly different.

  50. keepounding1234 says: Oct 22, 2013 11:02 PM

    This boggles my mind. Why on earth would they be smoking a blunt at the team hotel?

  51. sandman34rt says: Oct 22, 2013 11:03 PM

    What if they were caught with prostitutes? Is that ok?

    The only argument against this is that it’s against the law. Other then that it’s no different than catching them having some drinks.

    I’d much rather catch guys smoking some and relaxing over drinking and going out.

  52. steelers33 says: Oct 22, 2013 11:03 PM

    Man, these guys have to be the stupidest rookies ever. They couldn’t even wait until they were back at their own place, but yet decided to blaze a blunt in the team hotel. I toke myself, but only responsibly in the appropriate time and place. Smh a blunt that lost them millions, what team or coach would want players who do this? I feel bad for JJ, great player thats in a mess in Houston this year.

  56. helix828 says: Oct 22, 2013 11:09 PM

    Things you don’t share: a cigar.
    Things you do share: a blunt.

  57. patsbrat says: Oct 22, 2013 11:12 PM

    This isn’t about just smoking a blunt at home, the linked article says they were smoking a ‘cigar’ in the team hotel!

    If you are on a business trip, you don’t smoke weed in a public place while representing your employer. If you do and get caught, you get fired. Doesn’t seem any different here.

    The only remaining question is if they really got cut for smoking pot or because they were so incredibly blatant and stupid. I think probably both…

  58. tundratommy says: Oct 22, 2013 11:14 PM

    Thumbs up = legalize it

    Thumbs down = don’t legalize it

  59. somuchintheworld says: Oct 22, 2013 11:16 PM

    If it was just a cigar, the grievance could be easily won by submitting a drug test. But I’m sure we all know why that hasn’t happened yet…

  60. barneyrumble says: Oct 22, 2013 11:19 PM

    If their agents/ PR team are so insistent that it was a “cigar”, then surely their client will gladly offer to take a drug test at a neutral lab, right? It shouldn’t be that hard to prove/disprove.

    Totally agree with the alcohol vs. weed thing. However, I think the guy said it best above. When you are on business, smoking weed in the hotel room while representing your employer is typically grounds for termination. That’s just common sense. And especially when the team is losing and management is looking for an excuse to set an example… got to be smarter than that. Seriously just go walk down the block. Shame these guys may have blown their careers.

    I just don’t believe it.. even as a pot head.. who would risk getting caught smoking a joint on the road at the team hotel with coaches and players around? Who provided the weed? How they get it in K.C.? did they travel with it? A dummy! not that Dumb! Could have been a Cigar.. Gary just mad he got down to zero healthy backs and had to use a FB in the game when he benched Woods for smoking a “Cigar”.. Everyone was wondering why he only dressed two backs.. We see now.. He lost the game by 1 and he looks like a idiot so he had to take it out on somebody for jeopardizing his job!

    Typical rookie mistake. If only a vet had showed them how they do it in the NFL. No one peacefully sits in the room puffing on a blunt to unwind. You get stone cold drunk and wreak havoc across town, preferrebly while driving. Hopefully their next team has better leadership.

    I’m guessing they were fired more because they weren’t being discreet and somebody from the hotel probably busted them and complained. Plenty of players keep their jobs after being caught with marijuana or failing a drug test, but if you’re stupid enough to make an ass out of the team while on the road, you kind of have it coming.

    For those who don’t know: The practice is to hollow the tobacco out of the center of a cigar and replace it with weed. They call that a “blunt”.

    We also would have accepted “spliff”…

    Who still calls it pot?

    Apparently most of you commenting are pot heads.

    I’m fully behind a National Legalization amendment of cannabis. For those saying you live in a state where it is legal, well it isn’t technically. It’s still a schedule 1 drug federally so a DEA agent could arrest you for it. Also, even if they legalize from a federal level the teams/NFL could still prohibit its’ use.

    “It may not be the best route because fighting the decision to cut the players could make it harder for them to get jobs with other NFL teams.”

    Well there’s a flawless system…

    Denver will pick them up. Pot is legal there and they need the help on defense. lol

    Plenty of potheads here, I see… that explains a lot of your posts.

    and just because someone is for it, doesn’t mean they are potheads. its means they r not ignorant. Go ahead name a problem it would cause if it was legal. Im waiting. the only problem is getting arrested, other than that you can still do everything you could without it. if not you cant handle yourself at all. even if you think its the devil, let other people make their own decisions about it, don’t throw them in jail over it, and see how much the country improves

    If the Honey Badger can parlay his experience into motivational speaking, he could transform into a very safe occupation! The archaic hooch laws are soon to be changing, it should be treated and used as alcohol is. Age requirements, location restrictions since the smoke cannot be controlled, and taxed like other consumables.

    Whether or not weed should be legal is immaterial. It is CURRENTLY against the law and CURRENTLY against team/league rules. These guys were on the bubble anyways, so why they didn’t act like angels and working their arses off on/off the field is just baffling.

    With murder , dui’s , domestic assualt , stealing , and battery . A little blunt should be the worst of the NFL’s worries

    lotts of “heads” on pft….just goes to show how many ppl burn. LEGALIZE IT

    I don’t have a job where I make millions – or even 6 figures – a year. I still enjoy my job and it pays pretty well – and – I’m ALSO not allowed to do drugs.
    Funny thing is – I care more about my “low paying” job than these folks in the NFL – I follow rules set by my employer.
    It’s really simple – if you can’t follow rules set by your employer – find work ELSEWHERE.

    Maybe if they included kubiak on the blunt they wouldnta got cut.

  126. wolfwithlightsaber says: Oct 28, 2013 2:01 PM

    so these guys get pulverized on a daily basis, concussed, torn, bruised, and broken…yet, they can drink and take pain killers to battle the effects of the job…BUT NO POT…….?

    I dont smoke pot, but seriously, this seems a little silly.
