Sorry to kill all the fun, but Cleveland Browns player Martin Emerson, Jr. was NOT walking around with a bunch of weed during Saturday’s preseason game … as it turns out, it was a bag of sunflower seeds.
Of course, some folks and/or trolls on Twitter tried to take a grainy picture of the Browns vs. Chicago Bears broadcast … and play it off like Emerson was holding a bag of weed on the bench.
The pic quickly made rounds on social media … with users cracking their “typical Browns” jokes for retweets and favorites, and playing it off like the players were getting ready to toke.
But, one intrepid account decided to find a much clearer image of the alleged weed … and yeah, it’s definitely a bag of seeds.
If you don’t believe your eyes, our sources confirm it’s not marijuana and there were several players clearly chewing in the same clip that made its rounds online.
FWIW, the NFL has softened its stance on weed recently … but sunflower seeds, however, are not banned.
