Former Tennessee football player Dennis Rogan was arrested on charges of simple drug possession, failure to appear in court and failure to obey court orders on Tuesday, according to the Knox County Sheriff's Office website.
The website said bond was denied on the drug possession charge and that Rogan, 24, would be arraigned on Wednesday. No further information about the charges was immediately available.
Rogan, a Knoxville native and graduate of Fulton High School, was a safety for the Vols 2007-2009. He also returned kickoffs and punts. Rogan set a UT record with 698 kickoff return yards in 2008.
Rogan left UT with one year of eligibility remaining and entered the NFL draft. He wasn't selected and signed a free-agent contract with the NFL's Tampa Bay Buccaneers, but was released before the 2010 season.
Rogan also was arrested in Knoxville in 2011 on charges of failure to pay child support.
