He didn't receive any playing time until 1973, but from then until 1981, he remained a steady back-up to Archie Manning.
His best year was 1976 when he and Bobby Douglass split time filling in for Archie Manning when he had shoulder surgery. That year he threw for 1065 yards and 4 touchdowns. He also rushed for 1 TD that year.
