Report details Greg Robinson, another former AU player were busted at border with massive amount of marijuana
When TMZ Sports broke the news of Greg Robinson’s arrest at the border, the outlet stated that the former Auburn offensive lineman was caught with “a bunch” “a lot” of marijuana. At the time, we didn’t know the amount, now TMZ Sports is reporting that Robinson and fellow-former Tiger Quan Bray were caught with 156.9 pounds of marijuana, which certainly explains the “possession with intent to distribute” charge. Robinson and Bray are facing up to 20 years in prison if convicted.
According to the TMZ report, the two were not reentering the country from Mexico, but, “rather they were trying to get from Los Angeles to Louisiana and hit the checkpoint on the way.” At the Sierra Blanca, Texas, checkpoint, a drug-sniffing dog reportedly brought attention to the rear cargo door of their 2020 Chevy Tahoe. The report says border patrol agents found vacuum-sealed black bags of marijuana, 23 mason jars, a can sealing machine, an electronic scale, and $3,100 in cash in Bray’s jeans.
A third person in the SUV was not charged. It is reported that during the border stop, Robinson and Bray tried to get the third person to “take the fall” for the marijuana in the car.
After earning first-team All-SEC recognition in 2013 as a redshirt sophomore, Robinson declared early for the NFL Draft and was the No. 2 overall in 2014 by the Rams franchise. After three seasons with the Rams (2014-16), Robinson was traded to the Detroit Lions during the 2017 offseason. Robinson did not last a full season in Detroit, as he was waived on Nov. 10, 2017 with the club citing an injury. In June of 2018, Robinson signed with the Cleveland Browns. The Browns re-signed Robinson in February 2019 on another one-year deal.
Bray joined the Indianapolis Colts as an undrafted free-agent in 2015. In three seasons, he made 6 catches for 75 yards. The Colts released Bray with an injury settlement in December of 2017. After failing to make the active roster with the Houston Texans and Buffalo Bills, Bray sought professional opportunities outside the NFL with the Birmingham Iron of the Alliance of American Football and the Montreal Alouettes of the Canadian Football League.
