It looks like a promising young player for the Bucs will now be pursuing his NFL dreams elsewhere.
Following an arrest made by Tampa Police early yesterday morning, Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver, Travis Jonsen, will no longer be with the team.
Jonsen was a member of the Bucs’ practice squad for the last two years.
His goal was obviously to try and earn a spot as a reserve receiver on the Bucs 53-man roster.
Which it now appears will not be happening—at least not any time soon—as Todd Bowles addressed the matter in his press conference just about an hour ago.

News broke yesterday that earlier in the morning, on May 30th, Jonsen was pulled over by Tampa Police for driving erratically, which soon after resulted in his arrest.
Bucs receiver Travis Jonsen, competing for a backup spot on the 53-man roster, was arrested early this morning on a misdemeanor charge of driving under the influence. He’s 25, from Montana State, spent the last two years on Bucs’ practice squad. Arrest was at 3:18 a.m. in Lutz.

It didn’t take long for Bucs’ General Manager, Jason Licht, to release a comment about the incident.
