Spent the final season of his long NFL career in Tampa where he hooked up once again with his former coach Jon Gruden. Was a shadow of his former self and did not impress either as a receiver or punt returner and retired after not being offered another contract with the Bucs. Saw his 176-game streak of games with a reception ended in October 2004. Had played in Los Angeles/Oakland since being a 1st round pick in 1988 (the 6th overall selection that year). Caught his 100th NFL touchdown pass against Oakland in Week 3 of the 2004 season, thereby becoming only the 4th NFL receiver to reach that milestone.
