Missouri pass rusher Shane Ray cited for possession of marijuana

Missouri pass rusher Shane Ray, a top draft prospect, was cited for misdemeanor possession of marijuana. Ray was cited for 35 grams or less of marijuana. He wasn't arrested. He was issued a warning for speeding. Ray apologized in a statement. "I'd like to apologize to my Mother, Fans and prospective NFL teams for my poor judgement Monday morning," Ray said. "I am embarrassed and realize there are consequences for my actions. I was not under the influence nor impaired, therefore I was not detained. Fortunately, Monday's incident only resulted in a citation. I will make better choices in the future. "It is imperative that I continue to strive to better myself. My future NFL career has been something I have always dreamed about and is very important to me. I commit that my actions will represent that. There are no excuses here and I will take the necessary steps to ensure this will not happen again. I will not jeopardize my ability to have a positive impact on and off the field moving forward." The Southeastern Conference Defensive Player of the Year, Ray had 61 tackles and 14 sacks last season. Follow me on Twitter: @RavensInsider Aaron Wilson covers the Ravens for The Baltimore Sun
