Ahmad Black cited for weed, Bucs waive McDonald


Tampa Bay Buccaneers safety Ahmad Black has been cited for possession of less than 20 grams of marijuana, according to the Tampa Bay Times. Black could serve up to a year in jail, but is likely to.enter a pretrial program with probation. Usually an arrest of this kind will not carry an NFL suspension. Black has been a solid free safety in dime sets this season and may be in line for more playing time, if the team decides to move Ronde Barber back to cornerback in light of the team's limited depth at cornerback.

In addition, the Bucs have made a pair of roster moves. The Bucs have promoted LeQuan Lewis to the regular season roster. The cornerback spent a week on the roster earlier this season, but didn't earn any playing. The Bucs released cornerback Brandon McDonald to make room on the roster. McDonald was the Bucs' nickelback this season, but was demoted after being toasted by Saints receiver Lance Moore.
