    Did we deal Drob too soon? Broncos DT Arrested

    Broncos DT Thomas busted on drug charge in Florida

    ORANGE PARK, Fla. -- Denver Broncos defensive tackle Marcus Thomas was arrested after police said they found cocaine and a handgun in a pickup truck during a traffic stop in north Florida.

    Thomas, of Aurora, Colo., and the truck's driver were arrested early Saturday after police received a call from the Florida Highway Patrol asking them to look for the pickup truck for a possible impaired driver.

    Thomas was charged with possession of a controlled substance. The police report said both men denied any knowledge of the cocaine. Police also said a semiautomatic pistol was seen inside the glove box of the pickup truck.

    Both men were released from jail Sunday after each posted a $2,500 bond, jail officials said.

    Thomas' attorney, Charles Truncale, said his client was in a vehicle when police found a small bag of what appeared to be cocaine.

    "He did not possess it, nor did he have any knowledge of it, until the stop of the vehicle. That's what happened. He is not guilty of the charge for which he has been arrested," Truncale said.

    Thomas, who also played for the University of Florida and Mandarin High School in Jacksonville, was suspended most of his final college season in 2006 after a positive drug test, then for violating curfew and drug rehabilitation class provisions of a contract he signed to remain with the team.

    Thomas, drafted in the fourth round last April, just finished his rookie season with the Broncos and had 20 tackles in 16 games.

    Cocaine? And a gun? That is not a minor offense.

    And I don't think DRob has officially been dealt yet.

    Can't help but picture Thomas as Chappelle to Shanahan's Brady, blowing lines off the barrel and yelling 'I'm Coach Kevlar, *****!'

    i guess Tannenbaum's crystall ball wasn't working properly... he should've anticipated Thomas getting arrested instead of trading Robertson for fair market value. same old Jets' inept front office

    Who's truck was it?

    It's very unclear whether or not this was his truck.

    He clearly was not the driver.

    If it wasn't his truck I can really see him getting away with this.

    Do you think that the deal between us and the Bengals has a time limit on how long they can take to sign DRob before we can shop him elsewhere?

    If it wasn't his truck, they're going to have a hard time making anything stick to thomas unless his fingerprints are on the evidence or someone testifies that it was his.
