After being arrested on DUI charges, Jenkins finds himself in an even bigger predicament than the one he was in while losing his starting role to Cameron Brate. His recent DUI arrest is his second in the last four years.
Following the Early morning DUI that landed the third year tight end in jail, rumors began to fly that he would be released. He verified most people’s inklings with a tweet that stated “Thank You TB! Next Chapter! The Buccaneers have officially stated that he has been waived.
According to the Buccaneers site, the team wasn’t even aware of his arrest until they were already conducting team meetings and had already been out on the practice field. However, Koetter made it clear that between him and Jason Licht they would be making a decision later this afternoon and whatever were to happen would be forthcoming.
With ASJ gone and the Bucs already down tight end Luke Stocker, who had not practice since leaving the AZ game with an ankle injury, it only seems fitting that the rookie Alan Cross get the go ahead nod.
