Profile
Started three games at strongside linebacker after Johnathan Casillas went on IR and then missed the final game of the season himself through injury. Saw a lot of action as a pass-rushing linebacker and remained a key part of the special teams coverage units. Recorded his first NFL interception off Drew Brees in 2013 and has been involved in several punt blocks in his four years in Tampa too. Was originally a 7th round pick who was a team captain for the Florida State Seminoles in 2009 and started 32 of the 46 games he played at FSU over four years.
