Came off the practice squad to be a gameday inactive for the Carolina game and then spent two more weeks on the lower level before coming up to the main roster for good. Saw action in six games on both special teams and also in nickel back formations. Did not make the 2010 team out of training camp. Joined the Buccaneers' practice squad on September 15 having originally entered the NFL as an undrafted free agent with the Houston Texans in 2007. Split his first two seasons in the NFL between the practice squads in Houston and Minnesota.
