The Texans’ starting defensive end, Montravius Adams, has been charged with drug trafficking after allegedly being involved in a multi-million dollar marijuana smuggling ring, according to the Houston Police Department.
Adams was arrested on Tuesday and charged with one count of possession of narcotics with intent to distribute.
Adams has been suspended indefinitely by the team.
“He’s an example of what it takes to be a successful person, and I hope the community will stand behind him,” Houston Texans coach Bill O’Brien said Tuesday, according.
“We need to make sure he’s never a part of our organization again.”
