Ravens receiver Deonte Thompson's drug charges dismissed

Mitch Stringer-US PRESSWIRE

The Baltimore Sun reports that Thompson will no longer face drug possession charges.

Ravens receiver Deonte Thompson has had his drug charges dropped, according to a report from The Baltimore Sun.

Thompson was arrested in February in Gainesville, Fla. after a vehicle he was in was pulled over. Upon a search, Thompson and two friends were arrested for felony possession of marijuana and misdemeanor possession of drug paraphernalia.

Thompson's charges were dismissed after Alvon Summerall pleaded guilty to those charges, as well as driving with a suspended license.

"The case was dismissed because one of the other guys accepted responsibility for the drugs," Thompson's lawyer Huntley Johnson told the newspaper. "I've spoken with the Ravens and they were very pleased with the outcome of the case."

This is certainly good news for Thompson, a receiver still trying to crack the receiver rotation. By all accounts, Thompson had a solid offseason last year, but an injury in the preseason opener against Tampa Bay set him back, to which he was never able to gain any solid playing time.

This preseason could be Thompson's last shot, considering the Ravens brought in Steve Smith and Owen Daniels as receiving targets.
