Bucs cut Travis Jonsen after DUI arrest

Buccaneers wide receiver Travis Jonsen was arrested for driving under the influence yesterday, and he’s out of a job today.

Tampa Bay head coach Todd Bowles confirmed Jonsen is cut today.

As is usually the case, marginal players can’t get away with the same off-field misconduct that star players get away with. A Pro Bowler who drives drunk will likely be suspended, but not cut. Jonsen, however, has never played in a regular-season game in his two seasons in Tampa, and he had no margin for error off the field.

Jonsen will be subject to a potential NFL suspension for violating the league’s substance-abuse policy, but that’s likely moot because he’s unlikely ever to play for an NFL team again.

  1. all the football he has played since pee wee leagues is now for nothing….must be a tough pill to swallow, too bad he swallowed alcohol instead…

  2. Where is the support for this guy? Made a mistake, if he’s willing to work past it, could be a productive player.
