Mike Patterson dodges serious charges

Eagles DT Mike Patterson was busted for possession of marijuana back in February, but today we learned that Patterson was only charged with "careless driving", completely avoiding any possession charges. While Patterson could still be penalized by the NFL, this likely means he won't miss any games and will instead get some type of monetary penalty.

This is definitely good news for the Eagles, although Patterson was never likely to get a serious penalty because it was his first offense. The NFL seems to only really crack down on repeat offenders, like Pacman Jones. Hopefully Patterson learns his lesson from this incident and stays out of further trouble.
