Former USFL player who made the 1986 Bucs and kept his spot as a nickel back and special teamer for another four seasons after that. Had problems after leaving the NFL and was found hanged in his garage in 1992 having committed suicide. Had also spent some time in the CFL with the Toronto Argonauts. Played the 1984 season with the Michigan Panthers, and then 1985 with both the Oakland Invaders and Tampa Bay Bandits, returning both kicks and punts in the process.
