Florida Highway Patrol saw Bradham driving in a 2021 Corvette and ran the tags, which came back mismatched and likely belonged to another car.
According to the Tallahassee Democrat, an officer initiated a traffic stop and noticed the smell of marijuana from the car.
A search of the car revealed “two handguns, 3.4 pounds of marijuana and 10 small bags, which the trooper believed to be for distribution,” according to the Democrat.
Highway Patrol says one of the guns came back as stolen out of Missouri.
Bradham is facing three counts of possession of more than 20 grams of marijuana, two counts of gun possession during a felony, and one count of marijuana possession with intent to sell.
Bradham posted bond on Sunday. The 32-year-old played in the NFL from 2012-2020 for the Bills, Eagles and most recently the Broncos. In 2016, Bradham was busted for carrying a loaded gun at an airport.
