The ex-Browns player arrested this week is reportedly facing up to 20 years in prison.

The offensive lineman, who is set to hit free agency next month, is reportedly facing up to 20 years in prison. He is alleged to have had 157 pounds of marijuana in large duffle bags in El Paso, Texas, near the Mexico border.
Robinson and Jaquan Tyreke Bray, 26, were both charged with possessing marijuana with the intention to sell. The potential punishment for the alleged crime is quite serious.
