Unfortunately, his rise to NFL stardom ultimately ended because Johnny Jolly developed a drug addiction.
For over two seasons with the Green Bay Packers, Johnny Jolly became a fan favorite. Jolly starred in seven games and in 2007 with the Packers, he had totaled a combined 21 tackles. He went on to accomplish so much more in his NFL career with 49 combined tackles in 2008, and in 2009, Jolly had another 40 tackles! Unfortunately, this all came to an end when Johnny Jolly’s addiction struggles got him suspended from the Green Bay Packers and he ended up in prison for 6 years.
