Former Giants and Jets tight end Adrien Robinson was arrested Monday after a traffic stop revealed he was in possession of about 25 pounds of marijuana, according to the Daily Item.
Robinson was pulled over on Interstate 80 in Union County, Pa., for an unknown reason when a search was conducted of his car and the marijuana was found. Online court records show he was charged with a felony count of possession with intent to deliver and a misdemeanor count of possessing drug paraphernalia.
Robinson played with the Giants from 2012-14. He earned a tryout with the Jets in 2016 but was eventually cut before the season started.
He had five catches for 50 yards and one touchdown in his NFL career after playing out his college career at the University of Cincinnati.
Robinson’s preliminary hearing is set for Tuesday afternoon, according to online records.
The deal Washington offered Cousins would have locked him up through 2022, but only would have included $29 million guaranteed over and above what he’ll receive playing under the franchise tag. According to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, that’s the primary reason a deal didn’t get done.
For one, the timing was bad for Washington. The team didn’t come to an agreement with Cousins before Derek Carr signed his massive five-year, $125 million extension, and that meant the team was looking at a blockbuster deal worth more than Carr’s to lock up Cousins.
Washington reportedly offered Cousins a deal averaging around $20 million a year back in February, according to The Washington Post’s Master Tesfatsion. NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero reported that the team increased its offer in May, but it still fell short of his franchise tag figure. Cousins knew he could turn that down and still make about $24 million this season before testing the market in 2018.
