LINCOLN, Nebraska — A former Nebraska football player has pleaded guilty to federal gun and drug charges.

The Lincoln Journal Star says (http://bit.ly/1mHdk8V ) 26-year-old Benjamin Martin made the pleas Monday at a hearing in Lincoln.

Authorities say a passer-by found Martin slumped over in his car in a Lincoln parking lot on Dec. 20. When officers awoke Martin, he opened his car door and rifle rounds spilled into the parking lot. Officers say they found a rifle, more than $48,500 in cash and methamphetamine in the car and later found more meth in a storage unit rented in Martin's name.

Martin began playing defensive tackle for the Huskers in 2007, but his college career ended later when he was given a medical hardship scholarship.
