Ex-Raiders C Barret Robbins Sentenced To Five Years In Prison

Former NFL lineman Barret Robbins has been sentenced to five years in Florida prison for a drug-related probation violation. A Miami-Dade County judge imposed the sentence Friday, more than a year after crack cocaine was found in Robbins’ car after a traffic stop near Dallas. Robbins had been on probation for a 2005 fracas in Miami Beach during which he fought with police officers and was shot and wounded.

Court documents say he suffers from bipolar disorder. Robbins was a Pro Bowl center for the Oakland Raiders, playing a total of nine seasons, but didn’t play in the 2003 Super Bowl against Tampa Bay after disappearing several days before the game and then showing up incoherent the night before.
