Profile
Former college quarterback who never made the transition to NFL running back as successfully as the Bucs would have hoped. Even saw some action at wide receiver as the team tried to take advantage of his versatility. Missed the 1987 season through injury and stuttered through two succeeding years before leaving for Buffalo under Plan B free agency. Went on to score a TD in the Super Bowl against the Giants and was then sentenced to 15 years in prison for drug trafficking after leaving football.
