Never panned out as a top-ten pick and played only sparingly during his rookie season due to a contract holdout that lasted the entire pre-season. Unfairly had to replace the greatest player in franchise history in LeeRoy Selmon, and hence was always fighting an uphill battle with the fans and media. Led the team in sacks in 1987 and was doing so again in 1988 when he got hurt and missed the rest of the season. Was traded to Denver during the following off-season and appeared in a Super Bowl loss to San Francisco with the Broncos. Passed away in October 2011 at the age of just 48.
