EL PASO, Texas (AP) — NFL offensive tackle Greg Robinson has been jailed in West Texas after federal officials said they found 157 pounds of marijuana in an SUV in which he and former Colt Jaquan Bray were riding.

A federal criminal complaint accuses the 27-year-old Robinson and 26-year-old Bray of conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute marijuana and possession with intent to distribute marijuana. The complaint says 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 sport utility vehicle.

Robinson was the No. 2 overall pick in the 2014 NFL draft.

Selected out of Auburn by the St. Louis Rams with the No. 2 pick of the 2014 NFL Draft, Robinson signed with the Cleveland Browns as a free agent prior to the start of the 2018 season. After starting eight games with Cleveland at left tackle, he re-signed with the Browns on a one-year deal for the 2019 campaign, in which he started in 14 of the team's 16 games as the team amassed a disappointing 6-10 record.

With his one-year deal having expired, Robinson is set to become a free agent in the upcoming offseason. According to Tom Pelissero of the NFL Network, the Browns had no intention of re-signing Robinson following the hiring of new general manager Andrew Berry.

Bray was an undrafted free agent from Auburn who played parts of three seasons with the Colts between 2015 and 2017. He played mainly as a kick and punt returner and caught six passes at wide receiver.
