Profile
Proved to be a high-priced free agent bust having been signed to a $37M five-year contract early in the March free agency period and started the first 10 games at cornerback scoring on an interception return in the Week 2 loss to the Giants. Was then suspended four games by the NFL for taking a banned stimulant and was inactive for the season finale. Was then released after the season and wound up playing in 2013 with the 49ers. Was originally a 2nd round pick of the Browns in 2007 and had made 71 starts in the NFL before arriving in Tampa with 13 career interceptions including four in 2011 as a member of the Detroit Lions.
