Profile
Had an eight-year run as a starter on the Buc defensive line having made the team as an unheralded 6th round pick in 1993. Left as a free agent but returned at the end of his career in 2004 when injuries hit the depth on the Buc defense. Never a true pass rusher, Chidi played the run a lot better from his left end position. Was released after the 2000 season and played the following season with the St.Louis Rams and allso saw time with San Francisco and Miami before returning to Tampa Bay. Originally wore the 90 shirt as a rookie and then switched to 72 in 1994. On his return to Tampa in 2004, he took the 95 shirt.
