He was released on October 26, at the end of the strike. He was re-signed for the last 2 games.

In 1988, he injured his left knee and was placed on the injured reserve list. In 1989, he was switched to defensive end and was placed on the injured reserve list with a right knee injury on August 28. He wasn't re-signed after the season.
