Profile
Spent two and a half seasons as the Bucs' No.2 QB behind Josh Freeman having started four games in 2009 including the Wembley game against New England. Saw a fair amount of time as a wildcat QB and deep receiving threat but never actually caught a pass. Was inactive for every game during his rookie 2008 season having been kept on the roster all year as a fourth quarterback. Was the Bucs' 5th round selection in the 2008 NFL draft and the 160th overall pick. Left Tampa Bay as a free agent in March 2012 to rejoin his former college coach Jim Harbaugh in San Francisco but wound up becoming a back-up in Cleveland and then Cincinnati.
