Aviles-Jimenez allowed officers to search the vehicle and they found multiple pieces of "suspected marijuana" near the passenger seat along with a "marijuana cigar" that was left in a water bottle.

Carlos Henderson, the team's third-round pick out of Louisiana Tech last season, was arrested in Monroe, Louisiana on a charge or marijuana possession. Henderson was a passenger in a GMC Yukon that was stopped for traveling 84 miles per hour in a 60 miles per hour zone on Interstate 20 East, according to the arrest report. An officer pulled the auto over and could immediately smell marijuana when he opened the door of his cruiser. After pulling the vehicle over for speeding on Interstate 20 in West Monroe, Detective Spoon indicated in the affidavit that he immediately noted a strong smell of marijuana coming from the vehicle.

Henderson has been charged with first offense possession of marijuana, a misdemeanor.

As football fans were treated to two incredible divisional playoff games on Sunday, the Denver Broncos got some troubling news regarding one of their players.

The Broncos released a statement saying they are aware of the arrest and gathering more information.

When officers found "thick green residue" in Henderson's mouth, he denied eating any marijuana before the traffic stop, but did admit to smoking earlier in the day.

Henderson did not play a snap in his rookie year for the Broncos. He missed the entire season after suffering a torn thumb ligament in August.
