Travis Jonsen’s NFL offseason just got a little longer.

Jonsen, who’s spent parts of each of the last two seasons on the Buccaneers’ practice squad and who had currently been on Tampa’s offseason roster, was cut by the Bucs on Tuesday. His release comes one day after the wide receiver was arrested for allegedly driving under the influence.

Per the Tampa Bay Times, police observed Jonsen’s car “straddling lane markers, speeding and weaving,” in the early hours of Memorial Day.
