Former New York Giants tight end Adrien Robinson was arrested on drug charges in Pennsylvania.

Robinson was arrested in White Deer Township, Pa. Monday and charged with intent to deliver marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia after being pulled over with more than 20 pounds of marijuana in his truck.

He spent several hours in the Union County Jail after being unable to post the $15,000 bail but was eventually bailed out.

The arrest affidavit states that Robinson was pulled over because of an unsafe lane switch around 10:30 pm Monday. A search of his truck revealed large bags of marijuana, a metal grinder, digital scale, a vacuum sealer, and a vacuum sealer bag.

Robinson was selected by the Giants with the 117th overall pick in the 2012 NFL Draft out of the University of Cincinnati. General manager Jerry Reese called him “the JPP of tight ends” at the time of his selection.

Robinson didn’t catch a pass until his third season (2014) with the Giants, finishing with five catches for 50 yards and a touchdown. He played all in 16 games with one start. Robinson was waived by the Giants at the end of the 2015 preseason.

Robinson has not played in the NFL since. He spent part of last season with the New York Jets trying to unsuccessfully earn a roster spot. Robinson is currently a free agent and told police he was still trying to land on an NFL roster.
