Profile
Spent most of seven seasons starting at strong safety for the Buccaneers but only twice made it through a full season without injury. Had replaced John Lynch in the starting line-up in 2004 and also saw time starting at free safety during his Buccaneer career. Was finally released after the 2009 season and never played again in the NFL. Played his rookie season on special teams and was one of the team leaders in that category during the Super Bowl season.
