Sometimes one of the most important qualities about a GM is knowing when to let go. Chiefs GM Scott Pioli traded DE Alex Magee to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers less than two years after drafting him in the third round.
And it was good timing because Magee has now been arrested, according to Bay News 9 in Tampa.
Magee's full name - Arcilla Alexander Magee - was driving his 2009 Dodge Charger when he was stopped on East Kennedy Blvd. and North Nebraska Ave. at 1:13pm, the report says. The officer smelled marijuana and searched the vehicle. The investigation turned up a "misdemeanor amount of field test positive marijuana", according to the report.
No word yet on how this will affect his standing in the league. NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell says he will be upholding the personal conduct policy even while the lockout is in place which, frankly, is a little like having your cake and eating it too.
Also no word yet on whether Magee went down like former Chief Michael Merritt: "All this for a little bit of weed?"
The Chiefs have been laying low during the lockout but not Tampa Bay. There was CB Aqib Talib and and accusations he shot at someone. Then there was their scouting directing getting picked up for a DUI. The assistant to the head coach was also arrested for DUI as was a former assistant coach.
