First, New York Giants star wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. was seen in a video smoking an unknown substance. The league is still investigating that matter.
Now, Tampa Bay Buccaneers cornerback Vernon Hargreaves III is seen in a similar video. In the video, which was posted on social media, Hargreaves III was seen smoking a substance and blowing smoke, as the camera recorded.
It is not clear at this time when this video was recorded. It was also not posted under his official Instagram account.
The video, which was posted on Instagram, was under a different account, but similar handle to the one he officially uses. The “_vhiii_” has since been deleted.
In the video, Hargreaves III is seen with a caption, “I put a lil ice on the flex.”
The Buccaneers has not released a comment regarding the Hargreaves III video — and they may not. Yet, the NFL is reportedly aware of the video, according to ESPN’s Jenna Laine.
Like Beckham Jr., Hargreaves III could definitely face a suspension from the NFL if they find that he violated their substance-abuse policy. They could be suspended anywhere from one-game to four-games for this violation.
Hargreaves III will be entering his third season with the Bucs in 2018. Last season, the 22-year-old appeared in nine games, including seven starts.
He also had 35 tackles and five pass deflections.
As a rookie in 2016, the then-21-year-old started all 16 games. He had 68 tackles, one forced fumble, and 10 pass deflections.
