    WASHINGTON: Cleveland Browns linebacker Armonty Bryant was indicted Wednesday on two felony drug possession charges stemming from his Christmas morning arrest after a traffic stop.

    Bryant faces charges for possession of Adderall and OxyCodone while former Browns practice squad defensive back De’Ante Saunders was indicted for improperly handling a weapon in a motor vehicle.

    Arraignment was set for February 24 in Ohio’s Cuyahoga County Common Pleas Court.

    A police citation from Berea, Ohio, said Saunders and Bryant were stopped for speeding. Saunders was driving and refused a breathalyzer test and was arrested early on December 25 for operating a vehicle under the influence and speeding. Police searched the vehicle and found a handgun and 22-round magazine.

    Bryant, 25, started twice for the Browns last season during their NFL-worst 3-13 campaign. He made 40 tackles, forced two fumbles and ranked second on the team with 5.5 sacks in 14 games. The third-season defender was not activated for the team’s two games after his arrest.

    Saunders, 23, was released after the arrest.
