Former Pittsburgh Steelers running back LeGarrette Blount was cleared of the marijuana possession charges levied against him after a traffic stop involving him and current Steelers running back Le'Veon Bell on August 20th.
Per ESPN's Adam Schefter, the now-New England Patriots back saw the charges dropped after completing 50 hours of community service:

Blount's attorney, Casey White, told the Associated Press that his client may still face a reprimand from the NFL despite having been cleared.
The 28-year-old was released by the Pittsburgh Steelers after he decided to leave the team's Week 11 contest against the Tennessee Titans early. He would sign with the Patriots several days later, slotting in as one of Bill Belichick's featured backs en route to team's berth in Super Bowl XLIX.
