Just one former Buc celebrating today and that is WR Karl Farmer who was only on the 1978 roster for two games and never caught a pass. He had been a 7th round pick of Atlanta in 1976 but was never much more than a special teamer with the Falcons. He was signed by the Buccaneers in November 1978 for the same purpose he sustained a knee injury in his second game after making four tackles and was placed on IR for the rest of the year. He did not make the 1979 team out of camp and his NFL career was over.

On this day in Buccaneer historyproduced in association with
28 August 2004 - Tampa Bay 17 Miami 10 This flashback is for one of the nicest players ever to appear for the Buccaneers and of course he won a Super Bowl ring too. Ryan Nece played 85 games for the Bucs and made 35 starts and although he had a pair of regular season interceptions, this pre-season win over Miami in 2004 was the game in which he took one to the house. So as partial thanks for all the great charity work he does, Ryan, this one is for you!
