Former Bronco In Trouble With The Law

According to ESPN.COM, former Bronco Tyrone Braxton has been charged with Drug Possession and could spend up to 18 months in prison.

Braxton was a member of the Back-to-Back championship teams for the Broncos and went to the Pro Bowl in 1996.

Against the advice of his attorney, Braxton told the AP shortly after his arrest that he was using drugs and was in possession of marijuana and less than a quarter gram of cocaine. He called the
arrest a "favor" and a "wake up call" from the Aurora police, saying he knew he had to suffer the consequences.

Braxton finished his 13 NFL seasons with 36 interceptions, which he returned for 617 yards and 4 touchdowns. He also recorded 3 sacks and 10 fumble recoveries, which he returned for 106 yards.

Braxton is married with two children and has been working as a real estate agent.
