Profile
Spent three seasons as the starting weakside linebacker but his play fell off during his final season in 2011 and hence was allowed to leave as a free agent after that campaign. Had made the 2008 team as a back-up linebacker and special teams coverage man and was excelling in both areas and scored a touchdown on a punt block before being placed on IR at mid-season. Went on to play a year with Chicago and then started 14games in 2013 for the Jacksonville Jaguars. Was the Bucs' 6th round pick in the 2008 NFL draft and the 175th overall selection.
