Police in the Dallas-Fort Worth area arrested Cowboys tight end Rico Gathers for marijuana possession.

Frisco Police officials said officers arrested Gathers Friday night for possession of fewer than 2 ounces of marijuana.

Gathers, a former Baylor University star basketball player was booked into custody and subsequently released Saturday morning on bond, according to Sports Illustrated.

Although his spot on the Cowboys remained uncertain, Rico Gathers still managed to secure a position on the team’s final roster despite his arrest.

The 24-year-old won a place on the 53-player roster after the Cowboys made the surprising move of retaining four tight ends.

In a statement, his attorneys said their client “apologizes to his teammates and the Cowboys organization for any distraction his arrest may cause as the team prepares to start the season.”
