Bucs release Jerramy Stevens

Jerramy Stevens’ Bucs career essentially ended when he was arrested for possession of cannabis with intent to sell on Saturday night.

The Bucs benched Stevens Sunday, and announced they released him on Monday.

The transaction will probably mark the end of Stevens’ NFL career, as well.  His long history of off-field problems, not to mention his age and skill set, should make him hands off for the rest of the NFL.

The best team in the NFC also promoted tight end Ryan Purvis to the active roster.

As Florio pointed out Sunday, the only questions remaining with Stevens regard the curious timing of the arrest, and whether a Stevens trial could implicate others on the team.

    Why they ever signed him, and then gave him an extension is beyond me. I’m all for Second chances, but a guy like this is not what you want on your team.

    Hope he made a lot of money off that weed sale. His contract was nearly $1.5 million. This, to me, is worse than the guy who gets caught doing coke because he’s addicted. This guy just lost a million dollar career while trying to illegally earn a hundred bucks.

    This guy is a complete & utter scumbag – TB never should have signed him in the first place.
    Lay down in dog sh%^, get up covered in it.

    Man, times are tough all over. NFL playa has gots to do what he gots to do to make it. Gotta sell a coupla jays to get me some 22’s on 300 custom.
    Idiot. This is another example of kids growing up with no morals whatsoever.

    Like JaMarcus getting all those millions from the Raiders and still can’t get away from purple drank. And they’re both wondering what went wrong. Not your typical millionaires with a college education. Sadly, typical millionaire football players with a college education.

    @konaeukai
    i’m for 2nd chances too but this would be his 8th chance. his hobbies include beating and roethlisberging chicks, driving drunk and reckless over and over again.
    slinging weed on the side while making an NFL players salary is just brazen.
    so long jerramy, maybe one day you’ll end up in prison like you deserve.

    Just because the law is possession of over ounce is intent to distribute does not mean that was the perps intent. A big time pot smoker can go through an ounce in a week or less, much less if the ounce was for a party or for more than one person. To think a millionaire is buying an ounce of pot to sell four quarters for a profit of maybe a hundred bucks is extremely stupid. The chances of him getting so much as even charged with intent to distribute, if he was not in possession of baggies, scales, etc, is ZERO.
    The law is there to draw the line between the average quarter ounce buying regular joe pot smoker and dealers, it does not take into account the fact that people with big bucks are going to buy bigger quantities simply because they have the money to do so. No different that buying the 20 pack of toilet paper on payday vs. scraping together change to buy one roll when you’re broke.

    Arrested for intent to sell Cannibas. Look for the Jets or Pats to try to sign this guy ASAP. Both of those teams love to sign convicts to their respect teams.

    That might be the most retarded thing I have ever read. The Pats??? The Pats??? Are you talking about the same Pats team that cuts players that get into trouble with the law? The same Pats team that would not trade for Vincent Jackson because of his alcohol related problems? The same team that drafted Jason Peters, and then “cut” him the next day because of his checkered past at Nebraska……I hope you were being sarcastic…

    No, he was probably talking about Corey Dillon (arrested), Randy Moss (arrested), Sammy Morris (suspended for positive drug test), Brandon Meriweather (shooting incident and suspension for FIU brawl in college), Kevin Faulk (arrested for drugs), Nick Kaczur (arrested for drugs), Brett Lockett (on IR- arrested for brawl at strip club), Quinn Ojinnaka (arrested for beating his wife).
    That’s probably the Pats team he was talking about.

    Even though the Bucs released him as a vested veteran he is entitled to be paid the $1.425M in his 2010 contract.
    That and the $1.265 million he made in 2009 plus whatever he sucked out of the seahawks as a 1st rounder in 2002 should buy him a lot of reefer.

    32 grams of pot is a felony with intent to sell? Florida is whacked. I wonder what criminals they have to release from their over crowed prisons to make room for the dope smokers? In any other state you would get a ticket and sent home.

    I don’t care about the pot arrest but Jerramy has been a punk his whole life. He cheated and played dirty in high school (also beat someone much smaller with a baseball bat). He sexually assaulted women in college and who knows what since. He is everything you don’t want in your community.

    One thing about this “intent to sell” debate. I get that drug laws are written harshly, and that he might have had enough weed to meet the legal definition of “intent to sell,” while not really truly having the intention of selling any of it.
    However…what NFL player smokes that much weed during the season? Don’t they still have random drug tests in the NFL? Was he just hoping to be lucky and not get tested? Or just astonishingly stupid?

    Good Riddance. The Bucs have enough trouble with opponents back up running backs, we don’t need a habitual buffoon bringing down the potential of a young, impressionable team. The “number one team in the NFC” made a strong choice in dismissing his services…
    Having said that, when do we get Tanard Jackson back?
    Go BUCS!!

    Jeramy you should have told him you were just gonna roll a Blount sized blunt and you could have gotten off for personal use.
    Seriously though protect your butt hole brotha you’re headed to county.
