Profile
The finest tight end in Buc history, Obtained in a trade with the Oilers that saw Houston swop 1st round picks in the 1978 draft. Started for the best part of nine seasons in the Buccaneer orange before being unceremoniously dumped by Leeman Bennett midway through the 1986 season. Saw a little time with the Eagles after that. Named to the Pro Bowl four times and ranks 1st on in franchise history for TD receptions and fourth overall in receptions. Came to London in 2011 with the Buccaneers to act as an honorary captain and ambassador for the franchise and was selected to the Ring of Honor later that year.
