Houston Native Johnny Jolly Gives Back To The Community... Unfortunately.

Johnny Jolly, though born in Houston, hasn’t made much of a public impact on the city, and as such, will likely be known only by minimal Houstonians for his tenure at Texas A&M as a talented defensive tackle. And that’s fine – rarely do native athletes get the chance to stick around.

However, according to Houston prosecutors, Jolly apparently did manage to make somewhat of a name for himself in H-Town – by trafficking drugs for nearly three years.

JS-Online is reporting that prosecutors in Houston claim Jolly bought, sold, funded and transported drugs and that he was “an active participant in the drug trade from approximately 2006 through May of 2008”.

Jolly, who recorded 40 tackles for the Green Bay Packers last season, is set to go to trial next week to plead his case. He is also currently a free agent. I wouldn’t expect him to receive any calls from NFL GM's for quite some time.
