Boykin pled guilty Thursday to a misdemeanor charge of resisting arrest and will be available for the start of training camp, the Seattle Times reports.

Boykin was charged with assault stemming from a Dec. 31 incident in which he is alleged to have struck a police officer after being thrown out of a bar during TCU's trip to San Antonio for the Alamo Bowl. Under the plea deal, Boykin will avoid jail but pay a fine, perform community service and attend anger management classes. An undrafted free agent, Boykin is expected to back up Russell Wilson this season. Tarvaris Jackson, Wilson's backup the last three years, is not expected to re-sign with the Seahawks, especially after he was was arrested Friday for allegedly pulling a gun on a woman reported to be his wife.
