Former Bulls OT Kenyatta Jones arrested again
Couple of things to catch up on, not the least of which is former USF tackle Kenyatta Jones turning himself in to Tampa police on Wednesday afternoon on three felony drug charges relating to the purchase of cocaine and marijuana. Jones, still on roster with the Tampa Bay Storm after a previous arrest in March, is in jail on $45,000 bond, his off-field problems continuing to overshadow his on-field exploits. That goes back to his NFL days, as you'll read in this Washington Post story.
-- Good story from Ryan Boyd in the Bradenton Herald, writing about how the next step in Matt Grothe's maturation as a quarterback is to eliminate the turnovers that have limited his success in his first two seasons.
-- The Times' Joey Knight has a follow-up on quarterback Alton Voss' decision not to play football this fall, talking to coaches and family members about a talented high school star who has lost his desire to play football. Voss is considering enrolling at St. Petersburg College, something that would have ramifications for USF's Academic Progress Rate scores. If Voss simply left the team in good academic standing and continued as a student at USF, there would be no APR penalties.
-- Former USF cornerback Mike Jenkins remains unsigned as the Dallas Cowboys arrive in California today to open preseason camp. The Dallas Morning News reports that Jenkins and fellow first-round draft pick Felix Jones are both represented by agent Eugene Parker, who continues to negotiate with the Cowboys; Dallas' second-round pick is also still unsigned.
