Profile
The most renowned player in Buccaneer history and the first Tampa Bay player selected to the Hall of Fame. The first pick of the 1976 draft, he started at defensive end for nine seasons and holds the franchise record for sacks. A six-time Pro Bowler (and game MVP), he missed the 1985 season through a back problem and retired from the game at the end of that year. Was named the NFL's Defensive Player of the Year in 1979. Was heavily involved with the University of South Florida and also owned a legendary restaurant in Tampa. Also presented Channel 4's coverage of two games from Tampa with Gary Imlach in 1997. He passed away in September 2011 following a stroke.
