Former USF tackle Watson arrested
Former Lakewood and USF offensive tackle Theodric "Thed" Watson, who was in preseason camp with the Carolina Panthers last year, was arrested in St. Petersburg on Thursday night on a misdemeanor charge of possession of marijuana.
Watson, 23, who had a tryout with the Giants in May but was not signed, was released early Friday morning; his bond was not disclosed. Watson, a two-year starter with the Bulls, was dismissed from USF's team in November 2006 for a violation of team rules. He could not be reached for comment Friday.
