Jerramy Stevens Arrested; Bucs Release Troubled Tight End

The saga of former Washington standout Jerramy Stevens took another turn for the worse on Saturday when the Tampa Bay tight end was arrested for possession of marijuana with intent to distribute. Stevens was pulled over for playing loud music Saturday night and arrested after officers smelled marijuana in the car. A search of his truck revealed 38 grams of the drug.

Stevens was inactive on Sunday and the Bucs released the troubled tight end this morning. The arrest was his third since 2003. In 2003, Stevens was arrested for DUI -- pleading guilty to reckless driving as a result -- and followed that up with another DUI arrest in 2007, prompting the Seattle Seahawks to release him.

Stevens was also suspended for two games in 2008 for violating the NFL's substance abuse policy. With jail-time looming, and a past filled with mistakes, it's going to be tough for Stevens to get yet another chance in the NFL. At this point, it's best to just hope he gets his life on track and gets his act cleaned up for his own good.
