Ricky made tremendous progress in the four seasons he spent with the Kansas City Chiefs. He firmly established himself as another dynamic performer on an already esteemed offensive line. Despite a two-year hiatus (’91-’92) from the NFL and continued forecasts of being relegated to a reserve role, Ricky persevered to start 34 of the chiefs 48 regular season games and four of the team’s five playoff contests at right tackle over three seasons. Ricky was a member of the Chiefs O-line which allowed an AFC-low 21 sacks while protecting the K. C. Chiefs quarterbacks. Ricky was with the Chiefs from 1993-1996. In 1997, he played for the New Orleans Saints. Then in 1998 he played with the Carolina Panthers, New Orleans Saints and came back to the Kansas City Chiefs where he ended his career.
