Former Bucs receiver Preston Parker arrested

After being arrested less than a month ago in Boca Raton, former Bucs receiver Preston Parker was back in jail after being arrested in Boynton Beach on Monday.

Parker, 29, a former FSU standout who lives in Delray Beach, faces marijuana possession over 20 grams and resisting arrest charges, according to a Boynton Beach Police arrest report.

Parker, who after his junior season was dismissed from FSU after his third arrest, started his NFL career with the Bucs, signing as an undrafted free agent in 2010, and was released in September 2012. He also played for the Saints and Giants, getting cut from the Giants in September after two games.

According to the police report: Parker was driving a Chevrolet Malibu with what appeared to be "extremely dark tint" on his windows Monday night. When he saw a patrol car, he put the Malibu in reverse, hitting a mailbox, and threw a bag out the window, according to the report. Officers said they could smell marijuana when they walked up to Parker's car, and they found a bag of marijuana near the damaged mailbox. He had 22 grams of marijuana, according to the report.

Boca Raton Police arrested Parker on March 31 after stopping him for running a stop sign and for dark window tints. That time, police found a 9mm Glock, cocaine and marijuana with Parker, according to the report.

AGENT DROPS MANZIEL: Drew Rosenhaus dropped Johnny Manziel as a client, a week after telling the quarterback to seek help or he would no longer represent him. Rosenhaus has been an agent for 27 years, and this is the first time he's terminated a contract with a player. Also, a Dallas grand jury is scheduled to consider this week whether to charge Manziel with attacking his ex-girlfriend in January. Prosecutors will present the case Thursday. Police originally presented a misdemeanor assault case to prosecutors, which carries a maximum punishment of one year in jail and a $4,000 fine.

ORLANDO WANTS PRO BOWL: Orange County and Citrus Bowl officials say they're interested in hosting the Pro Bowl as early as next year. A bid to bring the all-star game to Orlando has been placed, and the city is in competition to land the game for a three-year period beginning in 2017. Orange County Mayor Teresa Jacobs said officials are refining the process for evaluating the use tourist development tax funds. The game is traditionally held in Hawaii, but it's recently been played in Miami and Arizona.

TEXANS: Quarterback Brian Hoyer was cut. He is scheduled to visit the Jets today.
