Profile
Former third round pick who never lived up to his potential and spent only two seasons in the Buccaneer backfield. Left Nebraska as their all-time leading rusher. Had his best game as a Buc in November 1979 when he started against Detroit and gained 67 yards on 15 carries in Tampa Bay's 16-14 victory. Went on to play 18 games over the 1982 and 1983 seasons with the Los Angeles Raiders including Super Bowl XVIII against Washington.
