Former first round pick who was twice exposed in expansion drafts by the Bucs. Bounced back from being passed over by Cleveland and from recording one sack in three seasons, to notch seven sacks in 1999 and then a career-high 13 in 2000 and a new contract. Switched to left end from his favoured right side in 2001 and recorded only three sacks before being passed over by the Houston Texans in their expansion draft. Was a defensive tackle in college and his first two seasons in Tampa. Suffered a knee injury during the 2002 pre-season and was placed on injured reserve. Recovered by mid-October and was waived by the Bucs at that point and was eventually picked up the Bills.
