Veteran NFL QB who backed-up Vinny Testaverde in 1988 and 1989 and made three starts when he was injured. Had a long career with the Bills (1973 to 1984) and then Detroit (1985 to 1987) before coming to Tampa. Played for the Colts in 1990 before retiring with almost 30,000 passing yards to his credit. Started the Miami game in 1988 when Vinny Testaverde was allegedly injured, and made two starts in the final two games of 1989 when he really was hurt.
