The No.21 shirt
14 of the 19 players to have worn the No.21 shirt have been cornerbacks through their Buccaneer history although not many are going to go down as some of the most recognisable names to most Tampa Bay fans.into the NFL.

From Joe Blahak's start in the first game in franchise history, through to Juran Bolden being the Bucs' third corner in 2005, No.21 has been out there on an island for Tampa Bay.

John Holt was a decent if unspectacular corner for five years and Milton Mack had his moments. Charles Wright's only claim to fame was a 15-yard personal foul penalty that led to Ray Perkins losing his rag with him and cutting him from the team.

But the best-ever No.21 has to be Donnie Abraham - a starter as a rookie and one of the best corners we have ever had. Only a high salary cap number and the emergence of Brian Kelly led to the end of his career in Tampa Bay, but he went on to play several more seasons as a starting cornerback for the Jets.

Then there was Sabby Piscitelli who became one the favourite targets of the boo-birds for numerous missed tackles during his four-year tenure with the Buccaneers.

2012 free agent signing Eric Wright wore the jersey for a season and he succeeded 2011 draft pick Allen Bradford who became the first non-defensive back to own the number. And even Alterraun Verner's arrival in 2014 is someway short of what Abraham produced leaving Donnie pretty much standing alone as creditable players in the 21 shirt.
