Profile
Spent four seasons in Tampa before moving on as a free agent after having two full seasons as a starter in the Buccaneer secondary. Had two interceptions during Super Bowl XXXVII and returned both for touchdowns, thereby becoming the first player in NFL history to achieve this feat. Had some off-field issues whilst in Tampa and this probably led to him not being offered a new contract by Tampa Bay in the spring of 2005. Set one mark as a Buc in 2003 when he started four straight games but at four different positions, cornerback, nickel back, strong safety and free safety. Went on to play four further seasons in the NFL with New Orleans, Minnesota and Detroit.
