Personally, I think if this motherfucker is dumb enough to be driving with weed in the car, even if it's not his, when he already has a history of behavior issues, we should just cut him loose. He clearly hasn't learned shit.

I'm just concerned that this will impact the return we get on Hunt this offseason.

I expected us to tender him, and another team to sign him. This puts that into jeopardy.

He's "emphatic" that it wasn't his marijuana. But...the "odor of marijuana coming from inside the car" part of the police report is the part that may end up being the problem.
A good attorney will get this thrown out of court. Already precedent that the odor of marijuana in a vehicle is no longer grounds for a probable cause search. Especially in states with recreational or even medicinal laws.

Do you have sources citing that marijuana odor is no longer grounds for probable cause search? I want to see this for myself.

Is there a place I can apply to be a professional athlete's fall guy? You get to do a bunch of cool stuff, have no real responsibility, and interact with other famous people for the mere cost of taking a drug misdemeanor rap. Sign me up.

This is from a case 4 1/2 years ago. It was also adjudicated before the first Ohio legalization. Standards have changed. He's under no legal scrutiny anyway, he's uncharged and will remain so. NFL policies are a different matter.
Police are still doing it, and motions to suppress based on odor of marijuana are still routinely rejected by courts in Ohio. That may well change if recreational marijuana is ever legalized, but until then, that case is good law.

If you've got a case that says otherwise, I'd be happy to read it.
