Seahawks “disappointed” by Trevone Boykin arrest

Seahawks quarterback Trevone Boykin was arrested in Dallas on Monday morning after a car he was riding in backed into a bar.

Five people were injured and the driver of the car was arrested for suspicion of driving under the influence. Boykin was arrested on marijuana possession and public intoxication charges, leading the team to make a statement about the incident.

“We are aware of the situation involving Trevone Boykin,” a team spokesman said on Twitter. “We are still gathering information and are disappointed.”

Boykin was also arrested in December 2015 while still at TCU after an incident at a bar before the Alamo Bowl in San Antonio, which may have contributed to him going undrafted before the Seahawks signed him during the offseason. He eventually pleaded guilty to a charge of resisting arrest.

If the Seahawks’ disappointment level is high enough, the team may be in the market for a new backup to Russell Wilson in the later stages of free agency and/or the draft.

    Looks like a former 49er won’t be out of a job for much longer.

    Only mistake this kid made was not finding a better way home. Still a very young kid, talented, made a mistake. Shouldn’t have to pay with his career for a stupid mistake in the middle of the offseason, especially considering the track record of some guys in the NFL.

    He seems like he’s a good guy when sober, but this is the second serious incident involving alcohol or weed that he’s been involved in. I don’t know the guy, so I cannot say for sure obviously, but it seems to me that he at best does not understand the gravity of his current situation or at worst has a built in problem with judgement about substance abuse.

    it’s 2017 & people are still being arrested for marijuana. smdh. glad to see that whole ‘war on drugs’ thing didn’t turn into systemic & institutionalized racism, mass incarceration, and legalized slavery.

    Didn’t he attend the NFL rookie class on “having a fall guy”?

    And BTW, won’t get Kap because he thinks he’s too good so too expensive. More likely to get RG3 is my guess.

    Something about Texas and Florida that brings the knucklehead out in football players.

    minisoda needs a backup QB. Boykins criminality is a plus.

    Should’ve stayed in Washington. You know in Dallas they can’t wait to throw the book at you.
