TAMPA, Fla. (AP) - Veteran receiver David Boston was released by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Wednesday.
It comes two days after police released results of a urine test that showed the eight-year pro had a depressant in his system when he was arrested and charged with driving under the influence last month.
Last week, the 29-year-old receiver issued a statement through the team saying he had done nothing wrong and was not impaired when he was arrested.
Boston hurt his foot during pre-game warmups and did not play in last Sunday's season opener at Seattle. He was let go after reaching an injury settlement.
Boston missed most of the past three seasons because of knee injuries. He also was suspended four games in 2004 for violating the NFL's steroid policy.
