Profile
Had a great start to his NFL career when he returned a kickoff 57 yards in Soldier Field to set up a one-play touchdown to Kevin House, the then-longest kick return in team history. Was primarily a kick return specialist during his three-year Buc career, but saw a fair amount of playing time as a receiver in 1986 after House was cut and again in 1987 when his season was hampered by knee and hamstring injuries.
