Mike Patterson has the munchies

Eagles DT Mike Patterson?
Not a great start to the offseason...
Philadelphia Eagles defensive tackle Mike Patterson was arrested Saturday and charged with marijuana possession in Evesham, police said today.

Police said they found a vehicle on the side of the road with damage caused by a minor motor vehicle accident around 6 a.m. They said they smelled burning marijuana coming from inside and found Patterson and the marijuana inside. They said Patterson admitted it was his.

Mike Patterson was charged with possession of marijuana under 50 grams and released pending a court appearance, police said. His brother was charged with resisting arrest, posted bail and was released pending a court appearance, police said.

Not the worst thing in the world a guy could get arrested for, but still not what you want to see from an important member of your team. However, this is the first Eagle to be arrested in quite a long time.

In other Eagles/Weed news, Donte Stallworth is a free agent.

The Patriots [team stats] have officially declined to pick up the option on Donte' Stallworth.

The wide receiver was due $6 million on Sunday and another $2 million on March 1. Now he's free to negotiate with anyone.
