Started every game at left tackle and has hardly missed a snap since he first moved into the starting role in Week 4 of the 2007 season. Became the favourite player of the Bucs UK members at the team practice in London after catching a touchdown pass on a tackle-eligible play and then throwing the ball into the crowd. Scored on this play in the 2010 game in San Francisco. Was a Pro Bowler in 2010 having earned a lucrative long-term deal from the Buccaneers. Had originally been signed from the Minnesota Vikings' practice squad in October 2006 having gone undrafted but signed by the Vikings and made their practice squad.
