Broncos wide receiver Carlos Henderson arrested for possession of marijuana

Carlos Henderson had a disappointing rookie season and this wasn’t a good way to start off 2018 either.

On Sunday afternoon, Denver Broncos second-year wide receiver Carlos Henderson was arrested for possession of a controlled substance following a traffic stop in West Monroe, Louisiana.

Henderson was a passenger in the vehicle when WMPD smelled marijuana coming from the vehicle and several pieces discovered inside.

No word on any disciplinary action from the league or the Broncos.

“We are aware of the issue involving Carlos Henderson and are gathering more information,” the Broncos said in a statement issued Sunday night.

Henderson is entering his second season in the NFL after being drafted by the Broncos last season. He has a very rough training camp before being injured and put on injured reserve for the entire 2017 season. He had shown promise coming out of college, finishing the 2016 season with 82 catches for 1535 yards and a whooping 19 touchdowns at Louisiana Tech.
