Former Cowboys offensive lineman Torrin Tucker was arrested in Tampa last week on a felony count of possession of marijuana, according to Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times.

Tucker, now 37, started 24 games for the Cowboys in 2003-05. He tried to continue his career the next three seasons, spending time in training camp with the Bucs, Raiders and Texans but never made another roster. He also tried to make it in the AFL and CFL before playing four games in the UFL in 2011.

Tucker also was arrested in Tampa in 2012 on cocaine/marijuana/gun charges but worked out a pretrial agreement on those charges.

    That’s gotta be a decent stash, since Tampa decriminalized anything under 20 grams in 2016.

    Looks like the Mean Machine is going to get better up front.

    Do you have to fail a drug/IQ test before getting drafted by this team?

    In related news, Jerry Jones thinks Tucker is a leader and has reached out to his agent.

    Funny how its former Cowboy.
    Career history
    Dallas Cowboys (2003–2005)
    Tampa Bay Buccaneers (2006)*
    Oakland Raiders (2007)*
    New York Dragons (2008)*
    Edmonton Eskimos (2008)*
    Houston Texans (2008)*
    Florida Tuskers (2010)
    Sacramento Mountain Lions (2011)

    Fails to mention any other team.
    Funny how this site is so anti-Cowboy.

    I was surprised to learn that 20 grams is a Felony in Florida. In Minnesota it’s 42.5 grams. If you have 42.5 grams it means you’re either dealing, transporting for a dealer, or on your way to a Grateful Dead show.

    It’s time to start recruiting and drafting players from San Quentin and the other ‘football factories’. lmao

    Felony possession in OHIO is 200 grams or more.

    100 – 200 grams = $250 max fine/misdemeanor

    He probably did that on purpose to get Dallas interested in him.
