Former Texas A&M Aggies LB Brandon Joiner Will Do Prison Time For Robbery

Former Texas A&M Aggies linebacker and current Cincinnati Bengals undrafted rookie free agent Brandon Joiner has been sentenced to three years in prison on charges stemming from an armed robbery in College Station when he played for the Aggies in 2007. Joiner eventually left for Arkansas State once he was removed from the A&M squad.

In January 2008, Joiner was indicted on two counts of aggravated robbery and one charge of felony drug possession when he and another Aggies teammate robbed a drug dealer for his wallet, keys, cell phone and marijuana. Pretty much everything except the kitchen sink for these guys.

This could obviously damage the potential of Joiner's career, but his attorney Jay Granberry said the plea deal with prosecutors allows the former Aggie to receive his college degree before heading to prison. He might even get released on parole after six to nine months behind bars.

What a lesson to be learned for the youngster, who could easily be apart of an NFL playoff team if he'd kept his act together.
