Linebacker in the NFL for 10 seasons and five different teams after being a first-round, fifth-overall 1970 NFL Draft pick for the Buffalo Bills.
He played alongside O.J. Simpson at the high school, collegiate, and professional levels.
He drove O.J. Simpson's white Ford Bronco during the 1994 low-speed police chase that was viewed by 95 million people; Simpson, of course, was afraid to turn himself in to face charges for his alleged role in the murder of his ex-wife, Nicole Brown Simpson.
He was born in San Francisco, California, in 1947.
He told police that he took part in the low-speed chase because O.J. Simpson was holding a gun to his head.
