Well, it’s not just current members of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers who are periodically finding trouble. Former Bucs defensive end/linebacker Keith McCants, the fourth overall pick in the 1990 draft, was arrested Saturday on charges of felony possession of cocaine and resisting arrest, according to the St. Petersburg Times.
Though bail was set at only $4,000 on the new charges, police found an outstanding Alabama warrant arising from McCants’ failure to appear in court on a controlled substances charge.
McCants spent only three years with the Bucs, and portions of three more with the Oilers and the Cardinals. (The initial version of this item erroneously said that McCants played only three total years in the NFL.) In yet another example of why the franchise was so bad for so many years, the Bucs picked McCants one spot before future Hall of Famer Junior Seau went to the Chargers.
