(Harrisburg) -- State authorities say they have broken up a mail-order steroid ring whose participants included three prison guards, a probation officer and a former Bloomsburg University football player who signed with the Dallas Cowboys this year and was recently cut.

The state attorney general's office today announced charges against 13 people, including Brian Clarke, an undrafted free agent released by the Cowboys after suffering a groin injury.

Prosecutors say the ring obtained raw material from China and shipped hundreds of thousands of pills to buyers across the country, mostly through online sales.

The prison guards and probation officer worked at county facilities in northeastern Pennsylvania.

The charges against Bloomburg's Clarke include the possession and delivery of anabolic steroids. A message left for him at an address listed in his name was not returned.
