Johnny Jolly marries girlfriend just before training camp

By Jaclyn Brandt. CREATED Jul 29, 2013

GREEN BAY - In an interview during Packers training camp, Johnny Jolly announced he had been married Monday, July 22.

The defensive lineman for the Packers said he married his girlfriend of three years, Voniecie, just three days before reporting to the camp, according to the Green Bay Press-Gazette. He met his new wife back in 2010 when he was suspended for violating the NFL's drug policy.

Jolly was reinstated on March 4, 2013.

“No one has to look after me like I’m a child,” Jolly said Sunday. “I’m a grown man and like I said, I do the right thing and don’t think about doing the bad thing and stay focused and put my faith in God. That’s all I can do.”

Packers Family Night is coming up Saturday, Aug. 3. The first preseason game is Aug. 9.
