Started eight games at defensive tackle after Anthony McFarland was traded to the Colts but was better suited to a back-up role having usually the first defensive lineman on to the the field as a rotation replacement. Can play all four positions although primarily used by the Bucs at both tackle spots. Ranked third on the team in sacks with 5.5 despite not starting a single game. Saw some action in his rookie season as a back-up on the defensive line. Signed to a six-year contract extension in February 2004 but was waived in the 2007 pre-season.
