Two men were arrested in Pittsburgh after police made a giant drug bust at a house owned by former Steelers cornerback Deshea Townsend, according to CBS-affiliate KDKA. At this point, authorities don't believe Townsend was involved in any crime.

Townsend is currently an assistant coach at Mississippi State. The 38-year-old won two Super Bowls in 12 seasons with the Steelers.

The two suspects in the case -- James Perrin and Price Montgomery -- were arrested at Townsend's house with 1,500 bricks of heroin, 16 firearms and some Cuban cigars. There was also $100,000 in cash and jewelry, plus a chicken. An actual living chicken.

The drug bust took place in the Mount Washington neighborhood of Pittsburgh. It's not clear yet what charges the two men will face, but you can see at the top of the page what was seized from the home.
