For the second time this week, we’ve learned of a Packers player getting busted by police earlier in the season.

This time the word comes from TMZ that Packers tight end Lance Kendricks was cited for having marijuana in his car in September.

Kendricks was initially pulled over for driving 81 mph in a 70 mph zone. The officer who pulled him over reported “a strong odor of marijuana emitting from the vehicle.” Kendricks initially denied having any drugs but then admitted he had marijuana in his glove compartment.

News also broke this week that Packers running back Aaron Jones was arrested in October under similar circumstances, with an officer pulling him over for speeding and Jones admitting he had smoked marijuana.

Both Packers will come under league scrutiny for potential discipline.

  1. Eight miles-per-hour over the posted limit. That’s it. Everybody knows it. Anything over that, they’ll stop you. What’s the hurry anyway? The fact he was driving under the influence is good reason to bust anyone. The fact he was arrested for smoking weed is ridiculous. Legalize it.

  2. Hmmm . . . I’m making only $1,775,000 this year; that is, 40 times the average salary in the US of $44,000 a year. Why not smoke some dope? What the Hell! Who cares if I’m suspended?

    Question? Do people like Kendricks have a working brain cell?

  3. Really Lance? I seriously want to know how a guy with any brains drives around smoking pot, going considerably in excess of the speed limit, and half the time they don’t have a valid drivers license. Explain this to me.

  4. That makes five arrests for Green Bay over the last year, which leads the NFL. The Vikings, by the way, have zero over the same time period.

  5. The NFL has two sets of rules:

    The first set is for the NFL darlings like the Giants, Packers, Ravens Seahawks. This set of rules is based on an “innocent until proven guilty (and the NFL receives a large amount of backlash and bad PR). This set of rules allows the NFL darlings to do as they please. But, if the NFL receives a large amount of backlash, the NFL will be forced to issue a suspension. The current going rate is 20% less than a normal suspension (see: Brown Josh).

    The second set of rules applies to the rest of the league. In this set, the NFL will issue a swift and harsh suspension on mere allegations. If you’re team falls under this set of rules, the NFL will stop at nothing to issue a suspension – ignore the facts, create a special “exempt list” to circumvent a player playing, etc.

  6. You should have stayed in L.A. Lance. They may have higher taxes, but at least you don’t have to worry about this happening.

  7. If anyone should be given a pass on mind altering substances, it should be packer players. They live in Green Bay and play for the Packers. How much is one person supposed to to take?

  8. With the Bennett fiasco (why sign someone who is on record after last year’s Super Bowl saying about free agency “they always overpay for Super Bowl Champions”, Jones and now Kendrick’s one wonders if the Packers have the organizational controls in place to be a championship organization. That’s not to mention drafting Randall, Rollins, Spriggs, who they gave up two additional draft picks to trade up for, and let’s throw Kyler Fackrell into that group. They used premium draft picks on all these guys. You don’t hear any noise about Bennett when he is in New England. That’s because Belichik tells his guys to shut up and play. And they respect him. The Packers also don’t play with much fire. Watching Seattle and Atlanta last week you could feel the passion through the TV. When is the last time you saw that in Green Bay? Maybe when Kevin Greene coached linebackers the Super Bowl year and got in Clay Mathews face right before Clay caused the game changing fumble. There. Got that out of my system.

  9. I think it’s safe to say that the GB organazation has taken over the NFL as the most classless in the league.

  10. Some people say well it’s just weed. Exactly. So why can’t these idiots just not smoke it for 5 or 10 years, make a zillion dollars, then smoke piles of weed for the rest of their lives. Makes no sense.

  11. The Green Bay area has the highest percentage of DUI deaths in the country. It’s a shame that Kendricks wouldn’t use his position in the community to set a good example and not (allegedly) drive under the influence.

  12. It starts with the head coach. Has anyone looked at him lately, he can’t put the fork down. He lost his safety blanket in Rogers and is losing control of the team. Throw into the mix TT who apparently selects 1st round picks by picking a name out of a hat and you have what you have, a decaying team void of star talent and players looking for an escape. The Pack is gone.

  13. Meanwhile here in the Seattle area you can get pulled over with an ounce of pot sitting there on the seat and the cop won’t even say anything about it if you aren’t smoking it.

    Like Earl Thomas said, the difference between Seattle Washington and Orange Texas is astronomical.

    You call it liberal, I call it progressive.

  14. Everything runs down hill. It starts with ownership to management to coaching. There is a major breakdown somewhere along that line. Packers need to fix this, they are now the laughing stock of the NFL. As a VikIng fan the NFCN is a lot more fun when the packers field a team.

  15. There seems to be broad consensus that the Packers are a total mess. Whats really interesting is that this so called mess has dominated the league and especially the NFC North for years. The only way to reconcile these two true statements is to acknowledge how truly amazing Aaron Rodgers is as an NFL player. More importantly, Packer fans know, and Vikings fans fear, that next year, this same cast of characters will once again be one of the best teams in the league making another run at the NFC North title and the Super Bowl. Go Pack Go.

  16. Definitely a problem that needs to be addressed. Just looked up the stats – from 2000 to 2017, the Vikings lead the league in arrests. It’ll take about 30 more arrests for the Packers to catch them.

  17. Remember that saying about one aw shucks wiping out all your attaboys? Dominating the division for a decade doesn’t mean a thing this season. The Vikings under Zimmer are a far cry from what they were under Childress. The pack is disintegrating in front of the nation. That they were a one-man team was no surprise to anyone. What is surprising is the lack of control McCarthy has (or is it lack of respect by the team), and the absolute total bust that Ted Thompson is. Pot arrests, no second string QB, an atrocious defense are all indicators of a team in decline. Good luck in the draft.

  18. Not sure why Viking fans are throwing shade in here. Packers are having issues no bout, but it pales in comparison to the arrest history of the Vikings over the last 17 years.

    Once again packer fan living in the past. 2017 arrests, packers 5 Vikings 0.

  20. Dilly Dilly, no doubt! Next time it will be a bout, but only if we are boxing and eating kraut. For that I should get a Dilly Dilly…..

  21. Man those Wisco cops are usually willing to look the other way for the green and gold…must be fair weather fans like the rest of them

    What dumpster fire the Packers have become.

    /////////////////

    Can not disagree, and this season is exactly the kick in the butt this team needed. Wash the stench of this season off, make long-needed adjustments, and hopefully come back firing next season.

    =====================
    So is it present times, or ever (history)? Is this some type of blatz beer-distorted logic? If we’re talking about the present, the Vikings have won exactly nine games – six of them in a row. How many have the packers won? How many consecutively?

  26. Seems like it takes a lot longer for these law violations to come to the public than most other teams, where it’s immediate. Do I dare consider that the Packers are trying to hide their players’ law breaking?

    *************************
    Wait, hold the phone, it’s cool that the Vikings have won six in a row – can’t take that away from them. Just like it’s cool the Packers ran the table the second half of last season all the way to the NFC championship game, but lost. No trophies for second best in the division, but apparently winning six straight is something special? How bout the Saints? They’ve won eight in a row? But if you need some validation, then here it is – Dilly Dilly to you fine sir!

  28. You’re all flagged for piling-on! I guess I can’t blame you though. You haven’t had too many opportunities to take “pot-shots” at the Pack in the last 20 plus years;)

    Fancy Math can easily twist the truth.

  31. No harm, no foul. Opioid pain killers are more dangerous and more addictive than weed is, but the worse one is legal and the other isn’t. Time for some changes.
