The Buccaneers secondary troubles continue, as a published report said safety Ahmad Black was cited for marijuana possession recently.
According to published reports Buccaneers safety Ahmad Black was cited for possession of marijuana and is scheduled for arraignment on December 3.
The report said Black received a citation on October 30 for possession of less than 20 grams, which is first-degree misdemeanor.
Black could face discipline under the NFL's personal conduct policy. Discipline could range from a fine to a suspension.
The former Gator has 15 tackles, two interceptions and a forced fumble playing in a reserve role for the Buccaneers this season.
The Buccaneers are obviously hurting in the secondary already, as troubled cornerback Aqib Talib was dealt to the Patriots last Thursday. Talib was in the middle of a four-game suspension for Adderall.
Reports surfaced last month that cornerback Eric Wright could also be facing a four game suspension, also for Adderall.
Second year cornerback Anthony Gaitor is currently on the injured reserve list and still has two more games before he is eligible to return.
Tampa Bay is dead last in the NFL in pass defense, surrendering an average of 321 yards per game.
The Buccaneers have not commented on Black’s legal situation.
