Profile
Played three seasons for the Bucs and became a starter at cornerback midway through the 2007 season. Was allowed to explore free agency after the 2008 season and signed with the Detroit Lions before moving on to finish his NFL career in Washington in 2010. Was a former Raider 1st round pick who was with the Houston Texans early in 2006 before being released and signed by the Bucs in mid-season. Worked his way into the defensive rotation first as the nickel back and then started the final four games of the year at left cornerback. Also saw some time returing punts but without much success.
