The Raleigh, North Carolina, native recorded his lone career interception against Miami in 2017 and also blocked a kick against the Colts in 2019, returning it 63 yards for a touchdown. The Towson product was drafted in the fifth round (170th overall) of the 2015 NFL Draft by the Seahawks after starting 42 games for the Tigers.
