Bucs defensive end Alex Magee was cited for marijuana possession at a traffic stop Monday.

At about 1:15 p.m., an officer pulled over Magee's 2009 black Dodge Charger at Kennedy Boulevard and Nebraska Avenue for having an expired tag, according to the Tampa Police Department. The officer smelled marijuana, searched the car and found a small amount of the drug.

Magee, 24, was arrested on charges of possession of marijuana and driving with a tag that has been expired for more than six months. Because the amount of marijuana warranted only a misdemeanor charge, the officer issued Magee a citation and a court date and let him go.

WADA's involvement could eventually lead to players being blood tested for human growth hormone for the first time.

The league filed papers asking a federal appeals court to vacate a preliminary injunction that briefly lifted its lockout. The 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals has a hearing scheduled for June 3.
