Three freshman Tennessee football players are charged with an attempted armed robbery.

Knoxville police say wide receiver Nu'Keese Richardson and defensive backs Janzen Jackson and Mike Edwards were arrested after the early Thursday incident.

The victims told police they were in a parked vehicle near Tennessee's campus when two men, one brandishing a handgun, approached. The suspects demanded whatever the victims had but left empty-handed when victims showed they had no money.
