The No.26 shirt
15 Buccaneer players have worn this shirt in franchise history, but of course one will now always be associated with the Super Bowl win over the Raiders, after Dwight Smith became the first player in NFL history to record two interception returns for touchdowns in the big games. Shame he was not such a great player off the field for the Bucs.

James Owens is a good trivia answer - the question being - name a Buccaneer who won a gold medal at the Olympics (1976 4x100m relay).

But the rest of the No.26 contigent are a mixture of nondescript defensive backs and running backs although Paul Tripoli wore this number during the players' strike games in 1987 and won the NFC Defensive Player of the Week award for his performance in the win over Detroit.

Reggie Rusk managed to even get cut from the Claymores' training camp in 1997 which led to him not having a long NFL career, and one of the most recent wearers of the jersey number, Will Allen, switched to it from having worn 37 as a rookie.

Sean Jones owned the 26 shirt for two seasons but was not been offered a new contract and Anthony Gaitor shifted from 24 to wear 26 in his second NFL season before seeing the number taken over briefly during 2014 by Crezdon Butler.
