6th round pick 1983 Released during the 1985 season
Spent three seasons with the Bucs but was always injured and only appeared in three games without touching the ball. The Bucs traded a 1984 4th round pick in 1983 to gain the extra sixth round selection to choose him. Had looked good in the 1984 pre-season before missing that season with a hamstring injury following on from his knee injury in 1983. Was briefly on the roster for the 1987 Raiders before leaving the NFL for good.
