Buccaneer birthdaysThree former Bucs are celebrating today including one of the best safeties in team history, Harry Hamilton who patrolled the backfield from 1988 to 1991. Also celebrating are FB Tracy Johnson who played 10 games in 1996 and LB Nate Webster who was a 3rd round pick in 2000. Akeem Spence will hope to celebrate his 24th birthday today with a win over the Colts. It would also have been QB Blair Kiel’s 54th birthday today but he sadly passed away in 2012.
