Profile
Former Dolphin safety who spent four seasons with the Bucs, starting most of two seasons in the Tampa Bay secondary. Had two interceptions in the 1982 Monday Night win over Miami and spent most of the post-game trying to wind Don Shula up about it too! Was originally a 1st round pick of the Raiders in 1975 and spent four seasons in Oakland before being traded to Miami. Was waived by the Dolphins in the 1980 pre-season leading to his desire to show up Don Shula. He was also drafted by baseball's Washington Senators in the 1970 high school draft. Also saw some time with the Orlando Renegades in the USFL. Passed away in August 2001.
