Profile
Made the 1977 team as an undrafted free agent originally as a tight end. Switched to linebacker the following season and made his first start for the Bucs' defense in November 1978 when injuries hit the squad. His main role with the Bucs was on special teams during his five actual seasons (he missed the 1980 season through injury). Originally wore the 83 shirt as a rookie and then switched to 51 in 1978 on his return to the defensive side of the ball.
