    Cleveland Browns center Alonzo Ephraim talks to reporters after practice in 2006, in Berea, Ohio.

    A former University of Alabama and Eagles player has been arrested on drug and weapons charges in suburban Birmingham.

    Pleasant Grove Police Lt. Danny Reid says 34-year-old Alonzo Ephraim was stopped Monday night for a traffic violation and authorities smelled marijuana as they approached the vehicle.

    Reid says when Ephraim was questioned he told police there was a small amount of marijuana in the car along with ecstasy and a pistol he didn't have a permit for.

    Reid says Ephraim was taken into custody and faces a felony charge of unlawful possession of a controlled substance and misdemeanor charges of marijuana possession and carrying a firearm without a license.

    After leaving the University of Alabama, the offensive lineman played for the Eagles, the Miami Dolphins and the Cleveland Browns.
