Correll Buckhalter Involved With Drug Dealer?

Was Correll Buckhalter a Drug Client?

Earlier this morning Denver Broncos Running Back, Former Philidelphia Eagle and free agent pickup Correll Buckhalter claimed that he had no involvement with a drug dealer who is on trial in Pennsylvania despite it being brought up in the trial by the prosecution.

Now, I personally don’t believe he was involved in it because this is just the prosecuter saying so and there is no evidence to prove that he was ever involved. But being involved in this situation is never good for an NFL players career especially if they have just gotten signed and the fans don’t know the player very well. There is nothing more important than a first impression ESPECIALLY in a sport like football and in a league like the NFL. Here is what his agent J.R Rickert had to say about the situation to The Denver Post:

 

“I spoke to Correll about it and there’s no validity to it as far as he’s concerned. I don’t know the circumstances as to how or why he dropped his name. All I know is I asked Correll, ‘Are you involved in this at all?’ And he said, ‘Nope, there’s no validity to it.'”

The Philadelphia Inquirer says that Buckhalter’s name was mentioned today by Delaware County prosecutor Katayoun Copeland during opening statements in a drug trial in which Styles N. Beckles is the defendant. His opening remarks said Beckles had told the cops that he sold drugs to professional athletes and football players, like Correll.

Beckels was brought to policemen’s attention when they found 115 glass vials of marijuana in his car and another 487 vials of marijuana at his home. For now, don’t worry because Buckhalter has not been charged. Hopefully he will not end up like past Broncos running backs caught smoking marijuana like Travis Henry and Mike Anderson.

The Broncos on the subject denied comment.
