Profile
Was released in the final roster cutdown in September 2009 having missed much of the pre-season with a hamstring problem. Was a reliable kicker inside the 40 during his time in Tampa but struggled from longer range except for the time when he made history with his 62-yard game-winning fieldgoal against the Eagles in October 2006. It was the longest fieldgoal in Buccaneer history and was just a yard short of the NFL record held by Tom Dempsey and Jason Elam. Originally joined the Bucs in 2005 as a free agent and beat out Todd France for the job in camp. Had previously been in the NFL with four other teams including a season with the New York Giants.
