Profile
Spent eight seasons in Tampa primarily as a punt returner before moving on to wind down his NFL days in Arizona. Became the franchise leader for receiver appearances in 2002 when he surpassed Gerald Carter. Had four of the first six punt returns in franchise history, the final one coming in Week 2 of the 2002 season against the Ravens. Made the team as an undrafted free agent in 1996 and saw extensive playing time as a receiver from then on.
