Former third round pick of the Cowboys in 1974 who was made available to the Bucs in the expansion draft in March 1976. Played four games during that season and started them all at outside linebacker. Was injured on a non-contact play whilst returning an interception against the Broncos as pictured below. Was released in camp the following season and sat out the next two years before returning to the NFL in 1979 with the Kansas City Chiefs. Played 43 games over the next three seasons there and also saw a little action with the Raiders during 1982 before leaving the NFL for good.
