Former Seahawks quarterback Trevone Boykin has been arrested, stemming from charges from 2018.

According to NBCDFW.com, Boykin has been charged with aggravated assault for an incident in which he allegedly broke his girlfriend’s jaw.

He was booked in the Tarrant County Jail Friday night with a bond of $60,000. He denies the allegations.

When the incident was first reported, the Seahawks quickly released him. The league later suspended him for a game, but no one ever signed him again so it’s kind of a moot point.

  1. Ever?? It only happened last Spring! The league should’ve suspended for more than 1 game – that’s a Giants-type discount – but Hawks are one of the more favored teams, so.

  2. Not sure why it’s taken so long for the charges to be filed? Over a year has gone by since first reported and investigation undertaken. Back in March 2018 we thought there must have been some credible evidence for the Seahawks to move quickly in cutting ties to Boykin.

    I agree with the premise but I will never understand the chip. On Pats fans shoulders that is. There are no “favored teams.” You all basically think you should not be punished for anything, while everyone else should be punished worse for anything. I agree that the NFL is a little odd about it’s discipline – and that hurts the entire system. But so is every company I have worked for.

    But seriously, favored team? For a player like Boykin? Puhleeezzzz… You might be onto something if it was Wilson or something. It’s Trevone Boykin.

  4. Trevone Boykin played for the Seahawks? I thought I’ve seen every Hawks game, but I don’t remember him. I’ll have to look that up……oh, I found it. He has zero starts and 18 total career pass attempts. I must have gotten up to answer the door for the pizza delivery, and missed his entire career.

  5. Trevor Boykin had tremendous potential coming out of college at TCU. Boykin could throw, scramble, and run. He was a perfect fit at QB behind Russell Wilson. His last bowl game at TCU was the Texas Bowl. It was a night or two before that bowl game he slugged a cop at a bar. He was immediately by TCU for his actions. Both TCU’s 2nd and 3rd strings QB were hurt, and the senior 4th string who had never started a game since coming to TCU wents and a play the game of his life. TCU won the game. I wish I could remember his name.

    Still Boykin got drafted by the Seahawks. Again, it looked like a great fit for the Seahawks. Then this incident happened, and the Seahawks gave him the boot. There was no appetite in the NFL for any player accused of domestic violence after the Ray Rice incident. It’s another example of a player with talent to succeed at the NFL level, who could not control his emotions off the playing field.

  6. This guy has been in legal trouble several times. No one would sign a headache like him as a backup QB – can’t rely on him – either arrested or suspended.

    There are several examples of certain teams skating by with little or no discipline, while others are penalized much more harshly for far less. For example: Patriots skewered for under-inflated footballs, but the Colts (same game) weren’t even though their footballs were also too low. NE penalized for tampering with equipment even though it was proven they didn’t, but Colts and Giants admitted to tampering with NE’s and Pittsburgh’s footballs yet no penalty. Vikings and Panthers were actually caught on live TV tampering, but received nothing. There are many other examples too. Jets, Giants, Ravens, and Broncos always skate.

  8. @alongthegulf It was the Alamobowl, and TCU came back to win after going into halftime down 31-0.

    Dude, it’s Trevone Boykin. He’s never even played in a regular season game. How do you manage to insult two teams for a guy who doesn’t even have NFL statistics?

    Brady/Kraft : 1
    Beli: 0


    true, but Brady could have gotten the ACL injury and everyone would have said “Why’d they dump Jimmie G?”.

    I don’t think anyone on the Patriots has any animosity towards him. I think they would have loved to keep him, but that’s stupid money to pay to have him sit on the bench.
