Cleveland Browns offensive lineman Greg Robinson has allegedly been caught in proximity of the Mexico–United States border in Texas with 157 pounds of weed in his vehicle this past Monday (2/17). The O-lineman was reportedly driving a rented SUV, according to TMZ.
Robinson, who’s a Thibodaux, LA native and attended Auburn University in Alabama, was reportedly in en route from Los Angeles to Louisiana with former NFL player and Auburn teammate Quan Bray, and a third unidentified person when their SUV was stopped at approximately 7:15 p.m. at the Sierra Blanca border checkpoint. An agent at the checkpoint was instructed to conduct an inspection after a drug-sniffing dog sensed marijuana as their vehicle drove by on Interstate 10.
