OTL: Full version of Johnny Jolly profile
By Kevin Seifert
Tuesday, we posted a preview of "Outside the Lines'" profile of former Green Bay Packers defensive lineman Johnny Jolly, who hasn't played since 2009 and admits he's addicted to codeine. He tells OTL that he watched the Packers' victory in Super Bowl XLV alone in a hotel room, drunk.
Jolly's story has spurred significant Twitter debate from many of you. Some of you aren't thrilled to see Jolly get so much attention, especially considering how unlikely it is that he will ever play for the Packers again. Others are pointing to a sentiment raised earlier this season by Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers, who suggested Jolly wasn't served by NFL protocol that banned him from contact with the franchise and its support group during his suspension.
Watch for yourself.
