The Chicago Bears' J'Marcus Webb was arrested for marijuana possession after a traffic stop for speeding on Feb 24. However, the pot charge has since been dismissed.

Police pulled over the offensive lineman on 1-57 in Pulaski County in southern Iliinois. A search of the car produced two grams of weed and paraphernalia. Webb was charged with possessing both.

The county's state attorney Grayson Gile decided to not prosecute the 6-foot-7, 300-pound gridder, who was drafted by Chicago in 2010.

The NFL leads all professional sports leagues in drug busts. Since 2008, 33 players - including  Marshawn Lynch, Santonio Holmes, Kenny Britt, Mikel Leshoure, Bryan Thomas and Leroy HIll - have been arrested for possession of marijuana or other drugs.
