Greg Reid has been dismissed by Florida State. The news was first released by former Florida State star and football assistant Tamarick Vanover.
Florida State released this statement:
Florida State Head Football Coach Jimbo Fisher announced Wednesday that Greg Reid has been dismissed from the FSU football team for a violation of team rules.
Reid was arrested in Georgia last month on multiple misdemeanor charges including marijuana possession, driving on a suspended license and failure to wear a seatbelt.
It is unknown whether this dismissal is directly a result of the misdemeanor charges, or if Reid, who has faced internal discipline for other unreported issues numerous times in the last, possibly violated another team rule.
It's also possible that Reid failed another drug test, his third, possibly after being arrested for drugs, as we addressed in early July with 'No Courtesy Foul For Greg Reid." If that is the case, Fisher's hands were tied and the dismissal was automatic.
In any case, Reid was long thought to be a favorite of Jimbo Fisher, who did everything he could to keep the senior on the team.
Though the senior is a good cornerback, he is a much bigger loss on special teams, where he excels as a punt returner.
