Former NFL tight end Jerramy Stevens is out of jail, one day after he was picked up in Florida on a probation violation this week.

Stevens, who played for the Seattle Seahawks and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and recently married soccer star Hope Solo, was released Thursday on his own recognizance by a judge in Hillsborough County, Fla., the Tampa Bay Times reported.

The Wednesday arrest was the result of a Stevens violating terms of his probation for a 2010 marijuana possession charge in Tampa when he played for the Buccaneers.

Several weeks earlier, Stevens was arrested in Kirkland, Wash., for investigation of assault after an alleged domestic dispute with Solo. Stevens was permitted to be out of state, but the arrested constituted the probation violation.

Stevens was released after a court appearance in suburban Seattle when a judge found no evidence to hold him. He then married Solo that evening. She said Stevens had never hit her and that the two are happy.
