Profile
One of the most popular Buccaneer players ever during his nine seasons on the defensive line. John played tackle and end for the Bucs and whilst never being confused with an All-Pro, was a solid dependable lineman throughout his career. Was a regular starter for four seasons and although he only posted big sack numbers in his first three seasons, did a reasonable enough job against the pass and run. He was always one of the first to contribute in charity work whilst a Buccaneer and ranked in the top 10 in games played when he retired.
