Profile
Started for six seasons at defensive end and ranks third on the team in sacks behind Lee Roy Selmon and Warren Sapp. Was one of the best pass rushers in the league during his career and arrived in Tampa as a free agent after five seasons with the Arizona Cardinals having been the third overall pick in the 1996 draft. Had two sacks and another on a two-point conversion in Super Bowl XXXVII and only narrowly lost the MVP vote to Dexter Jackson in the process.
