Profile
Spent most of his six seasons in Tampa as a back-up on the defensive line but did start eight games at defensive tackle in 2006 after Anthony McFarland was traded to the Colts. Ranked third on the team in sacks in the 2002 Super Bowl season with 5.5 despite not starting a single game. Was signed to a six-year contract extension in February 2004 but was waived in the 2007 pre-season. Went on to play further seasons as a back-up for Seattle and Minnesota.
