Jaguars defensive lineman Nate Collins was arrested for marijuana possession in Warrenton, Virginia last week, according to the Fauquier Times-Democrat (via the Florida Times-Union's Tania Ganguli).

Collins, a former University of Virginia player, was originally signed to the Giants' practice squad in April 2010. He spent the last two seasons in Jacksonville and will be an exclusive right's free agent this offseason. He played in 12 games in 2011 registering a half a sack and one pass defended.

The Times-Democrat reports that Collins was pulled over by a Virginia state trooper for illegal window tint, the officer noticed the smell of marijuana coming from the car and "found a duffle bag with marijuana joints in the trunk."

As an exclusive rights free agent, Collins can only sign with his previous team, assuming the Jaguars offer him a contract. The marijuana possession charge certainly doesn't help Collins' job prospects in Jacksonville -- where there's a new owner and a new head coach -- or elsewhere.

 I bet by the beginning of opening day 2012, their will have been 15 marijuana charges, 25 dui arrests, and at least 4-5 players brought in on drug charges where the police report starts like with the old
Also,let's not forget the usual domestic-abuse charge, assault of any kind, and the good old stand-by: the illegal use or possession of a weapon.

Report: Bears LB J.T. Thomas arrested

As if smoking marijuana says anything about his character. Just legalize it. I'm going to keep a running tab. I think their have been 3 arrests since the super bowl. I bet by the beginning of opening day 2012, their will have been 15 marijuana charges, 25 dui arrests, and at least 4-5 players brought in on drug charges where the police report starts like with the old
 "illegally tinted window" or "noise ordinance complaint" routine.


Well that didn't take long. What, 2 weeks, and 2 down in one day. Only need 13 more mj charges and 4 more illegal window tint charges to hit my prediction.
