I remember after his first few seasons in San Diego, I thought he would become the next great Dominant pass rusher.. he showed flashes of greatness then I guess the Injuries, and performance enhancing supplements sidetracked his career.

He was a beast even after the roids - once the leg injury happened (possibly roid damage related) he couldn't get healthy.

He dominated after the positive though.

For reference, he had 12.5 sacks in 15 games in 2007 his first full season after the positive, even if you wipe out the 8.5 in a month after his suspension in 2006.

Then his knee and calf injuries destroyed him.
