New York Jets tight end Kellen Winslow has been charged with possession of a form of synthetic marijuana called Fubinaca by police in East Hanover, N.J.

The New York Daily News reported that a Jets spokeperson said the team knows about the charges.

According to the Daily Record, Winslow is charged with possession of a controlled dangerous substance, which is a third-degree offense punishable by up to five years in prison.

Township Detective Sgt. John Fox Jr. allegedly found Winslow in possession of the designer drug on Nov. 19 by the Target store on Route 10 but a criminal complaint charging the player with possession of the drug was not signed until Dec. 30.

Winslow, accompanied by Colorado attorney David Blair, was in Superior Court, Morristown, on Wednesday for a “central judicial processing” hearing at which defendants are given copies of complaints and evidence against them before they receive a future date to appear for a formal conference before a Superior Court judge.

Winslow will be a free agent in 2014.
