According to Ex-LSU star Tyrann Mathieu, his "little" pot habit, which got him kicked off the LSU football team before the season started last year, cost him MILLIONS OF DOLLARS.The former All-American drug habit cost him playing time on the football field and forced him to drop out of LSU to attend rehab. In October, Mathieu [months after apologizing for his habit] was arrested for possession of marijuana.Since then, Mathieu has declared for the 2013 NFL Draft and has even told scouts that he hasn't done pot or any other drugs of any kind since his arrest back in October 2012."I've been to rehab. I've been to counseling. I have a sponsor," Mathieu said on Sunday. "I'm surrounding myself with people who want to do what I want to do, which is be a football player. To go back down that road? Not a chance in this world. Not a chance in this lifetime. I've got to be the best person that Tyrann can be."Mathieu also went on to say that he lost "MILLIONS" due to his drug, not because he was spending millions on drugs but because his use derailed what could have been a college career that would had led to a first round draft selection.Some [along with Mathieu] believe that he can sneak past the NFL Draft and actually be drafted by a team, due to his "good behavior".
