Report: Former Auburn OL Greg Robinson in custody for drug arrest at border
Former Auburn OL Greg Robinson is reportedly in legal trouble.
TMZ Sports is reporting that Robinson was arrested Monday at a border checkpoint in Sierra Blanca, Texas after marijuana was found in his vehicle. The report states that Robinson is still in custody and facing a charge of possession with the intent to distribute.
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.
Robinson started 22 games for Cleveland the last two seasons, but Tom Withers of the Associated Press noted Wednesday morning that the Browns had already informed Robinson he would not be re-signed for the 2020 season. The “legal tampering period” for Unrestricted Free Agents begins next month (March 16-19), but it’s unlikely any teams will be contacting Robinson’s agent with offers until the marijuana charges are settled.
