Patriots’ Joejuan Williams arrested for drug possession

As free agency approaches, Tom Brady seems more and more willing to explore options outside of New England.

Patriots cornerback Joejuan Williams has been arrested on drug possession charges.

After initially being pulled over for speeding, Williams was arrested at 9:37 p.m. Friday in Tennessee and charged with possession of a controlled substance, drug paraphernalia, and prescription drugs without a prescription, according to CBS 4 in Boston.

Williams, who was born and raised in Tennessee and played college football at Vanderbilt, was a second-round draft pick of the Patriots in 2019. As a rookie he appeared in nine regular-season games, all as a backup.

The 22-year-old Williams is the second Patriots player arrested in two weeks since New England’s season ended. Julian Edelman was previously arrested on a vandalism charge after he was accused of damaging a car by jumping on its hood.
