Profile
Punted for the replacement team in 1987 and was invited back to training camp the following season. Beat out 4th round pick Monte Robbins for the job that season and played the entire 1988 season recording the lowest gross punting average in franchise history in the process. Kicked an extra point against the Bears after Donald Igwebuike injured his hamstring in the game. Was originally a 5th round pick (121st overall selection) of the Eagles in the 1986 draft. Originally wore the 5 shirt as a replacement and then switched to 13 in 1988.
