Had his third straight injury-plagued season during 2007 and lost his starting corner position in the process. Had returned in 2004 from his injury-shortened 2003 season to start every game at cornerback leading the team in interceptions for the second time in three years in the process. Spent his first three NFL seasons as the Bucs' nickel back and making occasional starts in place of Ronde Barber and Donnie Abraham through injury. Replaced Abraham as the starting right cornerback early in the 2001 season and played well enough to earn a new long-term contract whilst the former Pro Bowler Abraham was released. Bought himself out of his contract in March 2008 and signed with the Lions as a free agent.
