Report: Hargreaves Video Could Get Him Into Trouble

After a disappointing start to his NFL career, there appears to be more trouble for 2016 first round pick CB Vernon Hargreaves, according to a report by the Tampa Bay Times.

A video has surfaced reportedly showing Hargreaves smoking a substance that resembles marijuana. The video was posted on a recently created Instagram account that was created to spoof or mimic Hargreaves’ official account.

Of course, Hargreaves has struggles since coming to Tampa Bay, struggling at outside corner and having to be moved into the slot before ending his season on injured reserve.

If the person in the video is indeed Hargreaves and the substance is marijuana, this could definitely jeopardize Hargreaves standing with the team and put him in the crosshairs of NFL commissioner Roger Goodell.

Proving what he is smoking could be difficult but it could spawn the NFL to investigate and allow them to put Hargreaves into a routine testing regimen. If he indeed partakes in the smoking of marijuana, that takes time to leave your system.

More on this as it becomes available.
