Bucs Wash Their Hands Of Jerramy Stevens

October 25th, 2010

Almost as predictable as Joe not going to bed with Rachel Watson last night, the Bucs today announced they have rid themselves of troubled wide receiver Jerramy Stevens this morning after he was charged with several drug-related offenses.

Stevens was arrested by Tampa police when he was blasting his music too loud from his pickup Saturday night, so reports eye-RAH! Kaufman of the Tampa Tribune.

A Tampa police officer stopped Stevens’ 2006 Ford pickup Saturday night after hearing loud music coming from the truck, according to a Tampa Police Department news release. After smelling marijuana, the officer searched the vehicle and found 38 grams of marijuana, police said.

Stevens was arrested on felony charges of possession of marijuana with intent to sell and possession, along with a misdemeanor charge of possession of drug paraphernalia. He didn’t play in Tampa Bay’s 18-17 victory against St. Louis Sunday at Raymond James Stadium.

Stevens played 49 games for the Bucs, catching 72 passes and scoring seven touchdowns. He was supposed to be a threat in the red zone, but after his scoring reception in Week 2 of the 2009 season, Stevens failed to catch a touchdown in his final 18 games as a Buccaneer.

Stevens came to the Bucs with a rather less than angelic past. This latest incident likely means his NFL career is over.

    38 grams is just about a full sandwich bag and over a quarter of another. Definitely an everyday smoker, we don’t need that type of contaminating influence in our young locker room.

    Adios Stoner Stevens, maybe I’ll see you in cali considering prop 19 may get passed. And if I do see you i might thank you for the catch in the Superdome in 2007.

    Other than that, you are a good for nothing.

    Ryan Purvis should have made the team with his pre-season performance.I think we just upgraded the TE position.

    So you’re driving around in a “Purple” hot rod truck, blasting the music as loud as you can(mega base and all), smoking a doobie, with a big bag of weed on you. This brings stupid to a whole new level. Is he trying for a part in Cheech and Chong’s new movie “Scared Stupid”?

    Marvin Lewis, sign this guy now!!!

    Thank God. The Rapist is gone. Yes!!!!! I couldn’t wait until this vile human being was no longer a Buc. I love karma. I hope he rots in prison for a while.

    We decided to drive up from fort myers on thursday afternoon and go to the sunday game. we stayed at the double tree off of cypress St. we drove right by this traffic stop on our way to dinner. i remember specifically the guy had him standing at the back of the truck, with atleast two cops there.

    After how many chances, this idiot screws up again?? How can anyone be that ignorant, as to throw away those amounts of money,that he has no chance of coming close to again! Hope him and retard Jackson end upbeing cellmates. They could share tips on how to totally end up a failure, after having the opurtuity to live on easy street. Enjoy yer jail time, and your new career at the carwash- morons!

    wow. Thanks for the link Joe. I had always heard Stevens had past legal problems, but never looked into it. After reading that I think it’s shameful that any NFL team gave this guy a shot. I mean he is clearly a violent dangerous scumbag. But I guess without an actual rape conviction the teams didn’t hold it against him. Doesn’t excuse them ignoring some of the other stuff that it was proven he did, like the assault. I mean hell, Ray Lewis is a knife murderer but people in this country let their kids idolize him as a hero. What is the NFL coming to? Oh well thats why I appreciate Roger Goodell, he is trying to rid the league of guys like that. But I don’t think he goes far enough. Just like many corporations in the business world, felony convictions should bar people from employment in the NFL. It’s just ridiculous. There are countless superstar players in this league who are stand-up guys or a that very least, not criminals. Why does the league feel the need to give scumbags second chances at all?

  8. Capt.Tim Says:

    As usual, I agree with Lakeland Bob! Purvis is a dedicated worker. Stevens is a P.O.S. That never should have been brought here to begin with! Glad he’s been purged.

  9. JDouble Says:

    Purvis is an upgrade in every aspect. Thanks for finally showing your true colors Jeremy. Peace out.

    the Bucs today announced they have rid themselves of troubled wide receiver Jerramy Stevens this morning…

    He was a tight end, not a wide receiver.

    Now perhaps we know where T-Jack was getting his stuff?

  11. Pete Dutcher Says:

    If we’re honest, we all expected him to be gone after this year anyway.

  12. Will the Beast Says:

    Yeah puff puff pass kiss my ass you big stiff go back to the north west or possibly Canada your done sissy

    His rape past is questionable. But an ounce and a half of pot? Seriously. One day when pot is legal in America we will look back and wonder why we looked down on potheads and turned the blind eye to obnoxious drunks. I don’t smoke weed, but does anyone mind the people who do? Not I. You never hear of a pothead walking into a strip club and starting a brawl.

  14. BamBamBuc Says:

    Just Frank,

    No, I don’t usually hear about that, but that’s also because I don’t know if that drunk in the brawl is just drunk or high too. What I have heard more and more lately though is more robbery of medicinal marijuana facilities. Not always non-violent robbery either. I live in Colorado, and we’ve had many instances of armed robbery, breaking and entering and theft of these facilities. You may say it’s not the dope heads, just someone out to steal it, sell it and make big bucks, but you don’t hear of anyone robbing liquor stores just to sell the booze on the streets.

    I also know many “so-called” drunks that are in no way obnoxious.

    This sissy was just afraid to stand across the field from joey ported next week so he got himself pinched by the fuzz so he didn’t have to face him again his heart is pumping kool aid I got a blunt for him to smoke on I usually use it to spit @ bearded clams

  16. Pete Dutcher Says:

    Just Frank, I mind. Though this isn’t really the place to discuss it, just take a look at the crime rate in Amsterdam and you will see what making it legal accomplishes.

  17. Just Frank Says:

    Nope, but in high crime areas liquor stores are robbed at gun point. Potheads are generally stupid and forgetful. So if they aren’t smart enough to lock up their stuff like fort knox then they deserve to be robbed. Why do you think jewelry stores and pawn shops have extreme security? I’m sure there’s no weed in those stores. Not the greatest arguement.

    Crime rates are directly related to poverty. The poorer people are they more desperate they are to do something stupid for money. The most vulnerable people usually suffer. If prohibition works then lets ban drinking and smoking and get it all over with(again). All I’m saying is 38 grams of weed isn’t crap. And the intent to sell charge is because of weight. A weight that’s obviously for personal consumption but heavy enough by law to villainize him as a dealer because of old outdated laws.

    T-Jack and Ricky Williams are two players that I feel got the crap end of the stick when it comes to this rule. Both players played very well despite their addictions(therapy). Had they been raging alcoholics they would still be in the league today just like Pacman Jones, Vince Young, & Donte Stalworth.

    Get my drift yet? I hope you can read between the lines on that last paragraph.
