Tampa Bay Buccaneers safety Cody Grimm, fighting for a spot on the roster after two injury-riddled seasons, hasnt helped his cause in the past few months.

Grimm, 26, was arrested on a misdemeanor charge of swearing/public intoxication early Sunday morning at a Leesburg, Va., hotel. Grimm, the son of Hall of Fame guard Russ Grimm, also was arrested on the same charge March 10 in another Virginia town.

I have to learn from my mistakes, Grimm said Wednesday during the teams offseason practices. I cant change anything in the past, but I have to learn and move forward. It was an error in judgment, clearly.

Grimm started nine games as a rookie in 2010, but landed on injured reserve each of the past two seasons. He faces competition from Ahmad Black and Keith Tandy in an effort to stick as a reserve safety behind Dashon Goldson and Mark Barron.

I have spoken to (Grimm) a few times, Bucs coach Greg Schiano said. Im disappointed and were still in the process of gathering. As an organization, well do what we think is appropriate.
