Jason Snelling makes great catch on Falcons’ onside kick (GIF)

Jason Snelling onside kickThe Atlanta Falcons successfully executed an onside kick against the San Francisco 49ers that had the game seriously in doubt until NaVorro Bowman returned an interception for a touchdown with 1:10 left to seal the win.

Atlanta scored a touchdown on a 2-yard pass from Matt Ryan to Tony Gonzalez to make it 27-24 San Francisco with 2:09 left. They then kicked off from midfield thanks to a 15-yard penalty on the touchdown, and they recovered the onside kick on an awesome catch by Jason Snelling. Snelling made a one-handed grab and still got two feet down to make it count. They took over at the 30, already in field goal range.

The Falcons really looked like they were going to at least tie the game, but Bowman redeemed himself for whiffing on the onside kick by making an awesome play.

Jason Snelling arrested for weed possession, tried to eat it

Jason Snelling Falcons

Atlanta Falcons fullback Jason Snelling was arrested for marijuana possession on Friday, and his attempt to eat the evidence didn’t work out too well.

According to the Barrow County News, a Winder Police Department officer observed Snelling’s black Lincoln Navigator unable to stay in its lane around 3:30 a.m and pulled him over. During the traffic stop, the officer noticed a strong smell of marijuana in the car. Snelling admitted to the officer that he was smoking at a friend’s home earlier in the night and that he had a small amount of weed in his car. Another officer noticed Snelling repeatedly trying to swallow during their conversation and asked him to open his mouth. The officer saw green leafy particles in Snelling’s mouth. Snelling denied that he was trying to eat the evidence.

In addition to being cited for not driving in his lane, marijuana possession and possession of drug-related materials, Snelling reportedly was also cited for having an expired or no driver’s license, no registration and failure to maintain insurance. Dude hit the superfecta of automobile arrests. Of course, he’ll probably get off very easily since these are all pretty minor offenses, but that eating the evidence part is pretty funny.
