Johnny Jolly has applied for reinstatement for the second time after he was placed on indefinate suspension by NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell over his violation of the league's substance abuse policy. Jolly last game as a Green Bay Packer was the January, 2010 Wild Card playoff loss in overtime to the Arizona Cardinals. The former 6th round draft choice in 2006 was suspened after a series of arrests in his hometown of Houston for posessing and distributing codiene. The prescription cough medicine is mixed with soda to form a street drug called purple drank. Following his fourth arrest, Jolly was sentenced to six years in prison but was released in May after serving seven months. In an interview with the National Football Post website, Jolly said he has been clean for 8 months and "I know that the NFL doesn't need me, I need it way more than it needs me. I really want to be a part of it" The Packers still own Jolly's contractural rights. His first application for reinstatement came after Green Bay's Super Bowl XLV championship, but Jolly was arrested again just two months later.
