Biggs: Bucs whack Johnson after DUI bust

Drinking and driving kills lives and the charge of DUI kills jobs.

That’s the lesson Marcus Johnson learned today as the Tampa Bay Buccaneers had him walk the plank only hours after Tampa police had him walk the line after they allegedly discovered him asleep behind the wheel at about 4 a.m. at a busy intersection outside Raymond James Stadium and blocks from some notorious night spots. Johnson was charged with DUI and was booked into jail at about 6 a.m.

The Bucs whacked Johnson and also released center Sean Mahan now that veteran Jeff Faine is healthy and back from a triceps injury. Tampa promoted offensive tackle James Lee from the practice squad. The Bucs also signed linebacker Lee Robinson to the practice squad and released outside linebacker Eric Bakhtiari.
