Former college football star Marcus Vick -- the younger brother of Michael Vick -- was arrested in Georgia this morning after cops say he was driving while high on marijuana ... TMZ Sports has learned.

Law enforcement tells TMZ Sports ... the 29-year-old former Virginia Tech quarterback was driving a 2013 Lexus LX570 which was stopped around 2:30 AM for expired tags.

During the stop, cops noticed the presence of marijuana and Vick was arrested for DUI.

Vick was hauled to a nearby station ... and sources tell us he was booked right around 4:20 AM.

Vick is no stranger to trouble ... he was arrested in Virginia in 2012 for blowing off multiple court dates stemming from driving on a suspended license charge.

Aside from that ... he was booted off the Virginia Tech football team back in 2006 following a string of arrests and convictions and has been involved in multiple legal issues since ... including gun charges.

2:05 PM PT -- According to the police report obtained by TMZ Sports, the arresting officer noticed a strong odor of marijuana on Vick's breath.

Cops say Vick also admitted that he smoked weed just before driving the car.

During the stop, cops say Marcus was not carrying a valid driver's license on his person ... and was not licensed to drive in Georgia.

Cops say Vick had just over $1k in cash in his pocket at the time of the bust ... and his passenger had $6k inside of a book bag.

Marcus consented to a blood test ... the results have not been released.

Looks like Marcus's famous brother Michael Vick is going to either be riding the bench next year or shipped out of Philly to some other team ... probably to a bench there too.

He got profiled. How else do you get close enough to a car to see the tags are expired...at night? Driving while black should be the headline.

Everyone knows you can't drive stoned. Smokin a blunt and being stoned aren't the same unless drinking a beer and being drunk are the same.

Even though he was stopped for expired tags and was stoned, you know this azzhat will claim racial profiling.

Who cares. Weed will be legal in most states soon. Can we get some better news than this? This is just another way to exploit the Vick family.
