BUCCANEER BIRTHDAYS - December 11Lots of former Bucs are celebrating today, some more well-known than others. WR David Gilreath (25) was briefly on the roster last season but saw no playing time. DE George Johnson (26) appeared in nine games over the 2010-2012 seasons. LB Tyrone McKenzie (28) played three games at the end of the 2010 season and was a prime organiser of the off-season workouts during the NFLPA strike before surprisingly not making the team the following year. DT Fred Nordgren (54) started all three replacement team games in 1987, And who can forget the legendary draft bust WR Marquise Walker (34) who would up selling his Super Bowl ring on e-Bay. And last but not least, RB Errict Rhett (43) who had two straight 1,000-yard seasons in 1994 and 1995 and then saw his career ruined by an ill-advised contract holdout. Happy birthday to these ex-Bucs from one and all!
