Mickens, a return specialist for the Buccaneers, was arrested back in March. Authorities initially pulled him over because the windows of his car were too darkly tinted. During the routine traffic stop, police found Mickens in possession of a concealed firearm. He was arrested, as a result.
Prosecutors came to a decision on Mickens’ charges this week, per a report from TMZ Sports. Mickens is facing two misdemeanor charges, both of which carry a maximum one-year jail sentence.

The Buccaneers have yet to respond to the updated situation surrounding Jaydon Mickens. When he was initially arrested, the organization said it would “continue to monitor the situation.”
“We are aware of the issue regarding Jaydon that occurred in Los Angeles last week,” the Buccaneers said in a statement back in March. “He reached out to let us know about the situation soon after it happened and we have been in contact with the league office to ensure they were aware.
“We will continue to monitor the situation but will have no further comment at this time.”
