Former No. 2 Overall Pick Greg Robinson Arrested After Being Caught With $120K Worth Of Drugs

Former NFL offensive lineman Greg Robinson was arrested in Thibodaux, Louisiana after police say they found large amounts of drugs in his possession during a car stop on Monday.

The 29-year-old has been charged with felony possession with intent to distribute cocaine, crack cocaine, hydrocodone, marijuana, Xanax and methamphetamine, Thibodaux PD said.

Authorities pulled over Robinson, who was driving a 2021 Black Cadillac Escalade for a traffic violation. After finding the different types of drugs, police obtained a warrant to search his other properties in Thibodaux, authorities said.

A search of the properties turned up over $120,000 worth of drugs police say, including 3 pounds of crystal meth, 2.2 pounds of cocaine, nearly 40 pounds of marijuana, 4 grams of crack cocaine, 227 doses of hydrocodone, 48 doses of oxycodone, and 18 doses of alprazolam, which is a form of Xanax.


This isn’t the first run in with the law for Robinson, who was arrested on drug charges in Texas in 2020 after federal agents said they found 157 pounds of marijuana in a rented vehicle.

Robinson was the No. 2 overall pick by the St. Louis Rams in the 2014 NFL draft out of Auburn. He then played for the Detroit Lions in 2017 and for the Cleveland Browns in 2018-19.

Robinson was booked into the Lafourche Parish jail, where he remains on $315,000 bail.
