Correll Buckhalter Named in Drug Trial

by Matt Snyder

Former Philadelphia EagleCorrell Buckhalter was mentioned by prosecutors in opening statements of a case against an alleged Philly-area drug dealer. According to the Philadelphia Inquirer, Delaware County prosecutor Katayoun Copeland told the jury that Styles N. Beckles sold marijuana to professional athletes, and specifically called out Buckhalter as one of the clients.

This would obviously be bad news for Buckhalter, should any of the allegations stick. The NFL is constantly trying to clean up its image in the public eye, so anyone "caught" using drugs by the public would likely face suspension. Buckhalter's agent, J.R. Rickett, obviously denied the allegations.
