Trevone Boykin looks to be getting a second chance.
The Seattle Seahawks backup quarterback was arrested on charges of public intoxication and two counts of marijuana possession last weekend after being involved in a car accident that injured five people in Dallas.
While the Seahawks can release Boykin at any time, head coach Pete Carroll is optimistic the young quarterback will stay on his roster.
“We’ll see what happens here,” Carroll told ESPN’s John Clayton on Friday. “Early indications are that we’ll give him an opportunity to be back with us. We’ll see what happens though.”
Boykin also had legal troubles in college at TCU when he was involved in a bar fight and struck a patrol officer. He was charged with assaulting a public servant, public intoxication, and resisting arrest.
The 23-year-old appeared in five games last season, throwing for 145 yards with one touchdown and one interception.
