He has spent the past three seasons with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and with the Indianapolis Colts. He spent last season with the Colts after playing the 2010 and 2011 seasons with the Bucs.

He has played in 17 career games over three years. While he entered into five games last season, he did not register a tackle, or any other defensive stat, as he was primarily used as a special teamer.

In 2011, he played in 10 games with 13 tackles and a forced fumble for the Bucs. As a rookie, he played in 2 tackles with two tackles, an interception returned for four yards, and a pass deflection.
