Patriots cornerback Joejuan Williams has been arrested on drug possession charges.

After initially being pulled over for speeding, Williams was arrested at 9:37 p.m. Friday in Tennessee and charged with possession of a controlled substance, drug paraphernalia, and prescription drugs without a prescription, according to CBS 4 in Boston.

Williams, who was born and raised in Tennessee and played college football at Vanderbilt, was a second-round draft pick of the Patriots in 2019. As a rookie he appeared in nine regular-season games, all as a backup.

The 22-year-old Williams is the second Patriots player arrested in two weeks since New England’s season ended. Julian Edelman was previously arrested on a vandalism charge after he was accused of damaging a car by jumping on its hood.

  1. Special teamer that did not play that much and just significantly hurt his chances of being a Patriot next season

    Also, found with prescription pills, I would guess opioids. League really needs to get its marijuana policy reset and allow at least CBDs even if they don’t allow THC products

  2. But I thought this didn’t happen on the Patriots? The Patriot way? They aren’t the only team that dismisses role players from teams, and they sure brought in Gordon (Yeah, he is on the right path) and and others. I am sorry that is a NE myth. They want to win too. Getting rid of this guy is hardly a brave move.

    BB has no patience for this stuff
    Unless its Chung, Edelmann

    Or legarrette Blount hot boxing his car down the freeway. Yes, I know he was a steeler but patriots signed him right after that. I know belichick isn’t the only coach who puts up with this kind of thing, but it’s just dumb when people act like he has a zero tolerance for this stuff.

  4. This is disappointing. I read an article about him earlier this season regarding his fiscal discipline and plans for post-retirement financial planning. Seemed to have a good head on his shoulders.

    Don’t know what rocking you been living under but if you’re driving around with prescription drugs on you without a prescription for them in your name then it’s always been a charge
