Unrestricted free agent NY Giants 2016 Released after 2017 season
Was a big free-agent signing of the 2016 off-season arriving from the Giants and had an excellent first season with the Buccaneers ranking second on the team in sacks and provided great leadership in the locker room. His performance in 2017 was a lot less and he missed four of the final six games through injury before being released after the 2017 season. Never played in the NFL again after leaving the Bucs. Recorded 9.5 sacks in 2015 in New York having spent two seasons there and the previous five with Denver. Originally entered the NFL as a 1st round pick of the Broncos in 2009.
