So, Derrick Martin of the Ravens says he wasn’t the Derrick Martin who was cited for marijuana possession in Cleveland on Saturday night.
Some guy named Derrick Martin (spelled the same way) with the same birthdate as the Derrick Martin who plays for the Ravens (5/16/85) and the same address as the guy who plays for the Ravens in Owings Mills, MD was cited for marijuana possession at Hopkins International Airport on Saturday.
But Derrick Martin of the Ravens says that didn’t happen to him.
What a coincidence, huh? Two guys named Derrick Martin with the same birthdate live at the exact same address in Maryland and happened to be at the Cleveland airport on Saturday night.
Welcome to Stage One of the NFL Drug and Alcohol Abuse program Derrick.
For the record, and, I’ve said this a lot: I think 30-40% of the players in the NFL use marijuana. It doesn’t really surprise me that a player – in the off-season – was cited for weed possession.
It does surprise me though that the guy would say, “that didn’t happen to me…”
Will the real Derrick Martin please stand up?
