Johnny Jolly to be featured Sunday morning on NFL Network

Posted by Mike Spofford on October 10, 2013 – 12:34 pm

Packers DE Johnny Jolly and his codeine addiction are the subjects of an exclusive feature on “NFL GameDay Morning,” the NFL Network’s weekly pregame show, this Sunday. The show airs from 8 a.m. to noon CT.

The NFL Network’s Andrea Kremer interviewed Jolly while he was in prison in Texas and after he was released on shock probation. The story details his addiction, prison time, recovery and making the Packers’ 53-man roster this past summer after three years away from the game.

Head Coach Mike McCarthy, QB Aaron Rodgers and fellow defensive lineman Ryan Pickett were also interviewed for the segment.
