Charges against Cam Robinson, Hootie Jones dropped

Back in May, Alabama offensive tackle Cam Robinson and safety Hootie Jones were arrested on felony weapons charges and it looked like they could miss significant time going into the 2016 season. However, the pair of Crimson Tide players have dodged a huge bullet after prosecution was declined due to insufficient evidenced.

Nicholas Picht of KNOE 8 in Monroe, Louisiana first reported the news Monday afternoon. This is a huge bit of news for the players and the Crimson Tide.

Cam Robinson is one of the top offensive linemen in the country entering the 2016 season. Having him on the field will be crucial for the Crimson Tide this year. Jones, on the other hand, has played a minimal role over the last two years. However, he is expected to play a bigger role with Alabama going into the 2016 season.
