Boykin said he's made changes in his life since the incident.

Former TCU quarterback Trevone Boykin has pleaded no contest to a charge of resisting arrest during a bar brawl that led to his suspension for his final college game at the Alamo Bowl.

Boykin, 22, who signed with Seattle as an undrafted free agent, received one year of deferred adjudication probation that could result in dismissal of the misdemeanor charge if he fulfills all terms of probation. Those include 80 hours of community service and taking alcohol awareness and anger management classes in Seattle, the San Antonio Express News reported.

The fight erupted outside a downtown San Antonio bar two days before the Horned Frogs beat Oregon in January.

Boykin’s teammates tried to take the star quarterback back to their hotel, but he threw a punch, hitting a bicycle officer, Police Chief William McManus told reporters at the time.

Manus said that it was unclear whether Boykin was trying to hit the officer or someone behind the officer. Boykin and the officer fell to the ground and Boykin struggled with police as they tried to arrest him, resisting until being threatened with a Taser, the chief said.

A Bexar County grand jury indicted Boykin on a charge of assault, which was to be dismissed under the plea deal.

The Seahawks open training camp July 30. Jake Heaps and Boykin are the quarterbacks behind Russell Wilson.
