LUBBOCK, Texas (AP) — The Texas prosecutor who brokered a 10-year probationary sentence for former NFL quarterback Ryan Leaf in 2010 says he is working on a plea deal that would allow the Montana native to serve his sentence in his home state.

Randall County District Attorney James Farren said Tuesday that he’ll seek a seven-year sentence against Leaf for violating terms of his probation when he was arrested for drug possession in Montana last year. A Texas judge would have to approve the deal.

Leaf, a former star at Washington State whose NFL career flamed out, currently is in a Montana prison after being kicked out of a drug treatment program. He pleaded guilty in May to burglary and drug possession.
