Two former Auburn football players were arrested after El Paso, Texas, border patrol agents discovered 157 pounds of marijuana in their vehicle.

A federal criminal complaint accuses the Greg Robinson, 27, and Quan Bray, 27, of conspiracy to marijuana possession conspiracy. They were held without bond at the El Paso County Detention Center. A preliminary hearing is set for Friday.

According to the complaint, the pair were driving from Los Angeles to Louisiana when the Border Patrol stopped them Monday night and found several large duffel bags of marijuana in their SUV. Inside the bags were vacuum-sealed black bags containing what tested positive as marijuana, glass jars, packaging equipment, along with $3,100 in cash.

Robinson, who spent the past two seasons with the Cleveland Browns, was the No. 2 overall pick in the 2014 NFL draft.

Bray had a short stint in the NFL after going undrafted in 2015. He’s currently a member of the Montreal Alouettes of the Canadian Football League.
