Profile
Spent eight seasons as the Buccaneers' starting middle linebacker and played in both the Super Bowl and Pro Bowl in his career. Now works in the front office of the Tampa Bay organisation and also took time out in London in 2009 to play for the Bucs UK touch football team in the most memorable day in club history. A former undrafted free agent who played for the British Columbia Lions in the Canadian Football League in 1995 and 1996 and then made the Buc roster in 1997 as a special teamer. Scored on the longest play in franchise history, a 98-yard interception return against the Packers in 2001.
