Bucs' Grimm owns up to arrests, hopes for another chance
Bucs backup safety Cody Grimm, arrested twice the past three months on public intoxication charges, said he made an “error in judgment,” but hopes he gets another chance.
“I’ve learned from my mistakes, and it won’t happen again, I promise you that,” Grimm said. “I know the way they do things around here, and it’s not the Buccaneer Way. I can’t change anything in the past, besides to learn and move forward.”
Grimm, 26, participated in Wednesday’s organized team activities and had an impressive practice, with an intereception and two pass break-ups in the later periods. Afterwards, Grimm declined to explain specifics of what led to his arrests. He was arrested at the Hampton Inn in Leesburg, Va. at 5:30 a.m.. Sunday, where he was attending a wedding. While the public intoxication is a misdemeanor, Grimm could face more severe penalties due to a previous arrest on public intoxication in Christianburg, Va. on Mar. 10.
Schiano said he’s spoken with Grimm a couple times about the situation, saying he was “disappointed,” but will sort out all the facts before making any decision. Grimm, entering his fourth season, recently took a pay cut to remain with the team, but is unsure if his future with the Bucs.
“That’s up to (Schiano),” Grimm said. “All I can do is control what I can control from here on out.”
