BILLINGS, Mont. -- A co-defendant in a federal drug case involving former NFL running back Travis Henry has reached a plea deal with prosecutors.

An attorney for 29-year-old James Mack, of Bow Mar, Colo., has filed court papers saying Mack wants to enter a guilty plea. A similar filing was made last week by Henry, who most recently played for the Denver Broncos.

Terms of the plea deals have not been revealed. The two men were arrested in Denver in October, after authorities in Montana said they found 6 pounds of marijuana and about 6.6 pounds of cocaine that Henry and Mack allegedly supplied.

The case is before U.S. District Judge Richard Cebull in Billings, who will hear Mack's change-of-plea motion on April 23. Henry's hearing is set for April 16.
