Profile
Drafted for his kick return skills, he managed to return a kick-off and a punt for a touchdown (the punt score coming back on a penalty) during the 1996 pre-season. Showed flashes of this form in the regular season but his inability to play receiver in the NFL meant he was a roster luxury the Bucs couldn't afford and was cut in the 1997 camp.
