As the Pittsburgh Steelers prepare to watch Super Bowl 49 this Sunday, one of their former teammates is preparing to play in the Super Bowl. Disgruntled RB LeGarrette Blount will be on the field for the New England Patriots as they face the Seattle Seahawks in the biggest sporting event in the United States.

Blount will have one less thing to worry about as the big game approaches as his lawyer tells 93.7 the Fan in Pittsburgh his marijuana possession charges stemming from a traffic stop on August 20th where charges were filed have been withdrawn.

The judge ordered Blount to complete 50 hours of community service before February 4th, and since the RB has completed the court-mandated community service the charges have been withdrawn.

As Blount prepares to play in the Super Bowl, his former teammate Le'Veon Bell, who was driving the vehicle during the August 20th incident, is preparing to face league action for his role in the incident. Whether Blount will be suspended for his role in the incident has yet to be determined.
