Profile
Started at cornerback for the first nine seasons in franchise history and ranks third in interceptions by a Buccaneer, his record of 28 was passed after he retired by Donnie Abraham and Ronde Barber. Was obtained by the Bucs in a trade prior to the 1976 season with the Baltimore Colts having originally been their 3rd round pick in the 1975 draft. Scored four touchdowns in his career, three on interception returns and one on a blocked fieldgoal return in 1978. It was his interception against Miami on Monday Night Football in 1982 that preserved the win for the Bucs and led to my becoming a Buccaneer fan.
