Eagles Player Busted for Pot Possession

Published by:

Mike Patterson, a player for the Eagles should’ve known better than to be in possession of pot after seeing what his coach went through with his sons’ well-publicized drug problems.

The Philadelphia Eagles defensive tackle was busted for marijuana possession on February 16 and had admitted to the cops that the pot was his. His charge is for possession of marijuana is for less than 50 grams. Due to the minimal amount of pot found on him, he will probably be slapped with a very small punishment.

Patterson is probably going to be made to enter the substance-abuse program that is facilitated by the league and would enter as a first-time offender.

In the end, that is the last thing coach Reid should be worrying about – one of his players having a drug issue after dealing with the issues within his own family.
