Profile
Solid dependable run-stuffing nose tackle who played four seasons with the Bucs and was a starter in the trenches for most of them. Had made the starting line-up as a rookie 3rd round pick and wound up beginning every game he played for his first two seasons. Never posted big sack numbers after recording five as a rookie. Had a productive few seasons in New England after leaving Tampa Bay as an unrestricted free agent after the 1995 season and also played a year in Philadelphia before retiring.
