It was a bad Thursday night for former Bucs in Tampa.

Illeana Morales of the St. Petersburg Times reports former Bucs tight end Jerramy Stevens was arrested on a felony battery charge Thursday night, just hours before Bucs coordinator of pro scouting Shelton Quarles was nabbed for a DUI.

Stevens is out of jail after paying a $2,500 bail. The Bucs released Stevens back in October after he faced a felony charge of marijuana possession with intent to sell. Stevens has faced multiple arrests throughout his career.

We’ll always remember Stevens as a guy that proved many NFL teams just pay lip service to “character.”

He had serious problems before he reached the NFL and throughout his career. He wasn’t even that good. And he still had a nine-year career.
