Played five seasons with the Bucs and was a starter on the line mainly at guard for most of that time. Became seriously disillusioned with the losing under Leeman Bennett and was quoted at a booster club meeting as "wanting to get out of Tampa to anywhere else in the NFL". Ray Perkins gave him his wish with a trade to Seattle for a second round pick. A solid hard-working lineman but probably not to the level of his first-round pick selection in 1982. Spent three seasons in New England after a subsequent trade with the Seahawks, and then played two years as a part-time lineman in Denver and finished his career in 1992 with the Seahawks once again.
