Impressed during limited playing time in the 2011 pre-season and made the practice squad roster at the beginning of the season. Was promoted to the main roster when Earnest Graham went on IR and saw more playing time as the season wound down without ever showing anything truly explosive or game-changing. Had been signed as an undrafted free agent when the lockout ended at the end of July 2011. Did not make it through training camp the following season and was briefly with the Jets after leaving Tampa but saw no further NFL game action. Primarily played receiver as a junior at Oklahoma, and mostly running back as a senior. Overall, he appeared in 40 games and finished with 160 carries for 724 yards and eight touchdowns plus 23 receptions for 186 yards.
