Profile
The first Buc to return a punt for a touchdown when he took one to the house against Detroit in 1994. Also came within a shoelace tackle of returning a kickoff for a score later that season against the Vikings. Had come to the Bucs on waivers having seen time with the Lions, Bills and Rams since entering the NFL in 1990. Played parts of two seasons with the Bucs before a short spell with the expansion Panthers. Returned to Tampa in 1996 but did not make the team out of camp. Originally wore the 45 shirt in 1993 and then switched to 30 in 1994.
