Kellen Winslow facing synthetic marijuana charges

The hits keep coming for Kellen Winslow.

Literally.

According to ESPNNewYork.com, Winslow is facing charges of possession of synthetic marijuana. The 30-year-old tight end was busted with the designer drug Fubinaca on Nov. 19, two days after returning from a four-game suspension for PEDs.

Winslow was charged with possession of a controlled dangerous substance, a third-degree offense. If convicted, he could receive up to five years in prison.

“We are aware of situation,” a Jets spokesman said. “This is a pending legal matter and we will have no further comment.”

In his first — and likely only — season with the Jets, Winslow recorded 31 catches for 388 yards and two touchdowns. An impending free agent, he certainly won’t have teams lining up for his services.
