Former Raiders center Barret Robbins said called a five-year prison term “a relief” Friday.
Robbins was sent to state prison for violating probation after a Texas arrest for cocaine possession, according to a story in the Miami Herald.
“I’m happy to have a resolution,” Robbins told a reporter. “It’s kind of a relief to be honest with you.”
Robbins has struggled with alcoholism, drug abuse and bi-polar disorder since vanishing before the Super Bowl XXXVII, which the Raiders lost 48-21 to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
