According to a report from KFVS-TV, Chicago Bears’ LT J’Marcus Webb was arrested late Sunday evening in Pulaski County, Illinois for possession of a controlled substance, cannabis, and paraphernalia.
The 24-year old paid $500 of a $5,000 bond on Monday afternoon and was released from jail.
He will be back in court sometime in March according to Pulaski County sheriff Randy Kern.
The former 2010 seventh-round pick from West Texas A&M has started all 16 games the past two seasons for the Bears. He is entering his fourth season in Chicago and will likely face competition from whoever the Bears bring in either through free agency or the draft.
With a new head coach in Marc Trestman running the show and the Bears trying to bulk up their offensive line, an arrest like this for Webb isn’t very good.
Even though its considered minor he will have to work that much harder this off-season to keep his roster spot and keep his starting job at left tackle.
He is entering the final year of his rookie contract and will be owed a reasonable $1.323 million this upcoming season. Expect him to be on the 53-man roster when the regular season begins.
Here’s what the Bears had to say in an official statement to the media on Wednesday:
“We are aware of the recent arrest of J’Marcus Webb in Pulaski County, Illinois. We are currently gathering information to learn more about the circumstances surrounding the arrest.”
More news to come on Webb’s arrest.
