Profile
Played three seasons with the Bucs having been obtained in a trade with the Raiders and missed only one game in that time. Saw limited action as a back-up linebacker but played extensively on special teams. Had been a center in college but was moved to the linebacker position by Oakland during his rookie season. Was originally a 3rd round pick of the Raiders in the 1976 draft.
