Profile
Spent parts of five seasons as the starting free safety only missing games through NFL suspensions for failing substance abuse tests. Was released in April 2012 after failing a team physical. Was considered the steal of the 2007 draft who started at every game at free safety and was a unanimous All-Rookie selection around the league. Had started for three seasons at Syracuse at cornerback but switched positions at the Senior Bowl which is where the Bucs coached him. Wore 28 as a rookie but gave the number to Warrick Dunn on his return to the Buccaneers and wore 36 thereafter.
