The No.39 shirt Only nine players have ever worn this number for the Buccaneers and it took 12 seasons for someone to sport in a game even then. Cliff Austin actually began Ray Perkins' reign in Tampa as one of his two starting backs having arrived in a trade with the Falcons, but only ever saw action in three games as a Tampa Bay Buccaneer. Greg Boone was a member of the replacement team and had a single carry for two yards as his offensive action in the NFL. But the next player to sport his number, was one of the best safeties the Bucs have ever had. Harry Hamilton was a real team leader and played four solid seasons in Tampa before injury ended his NFL career. Charles Dimry was the last really decent player to wear No.39 for the Buccaneers and was a starter at cornerback for nearly three seasons in the orange and white, whilst Kalvin Pearson was a depth and special teams' player since making the roster as a free agent (he also wore No.41 for some time). One of the most recent owners of the number, Noah Herron, was a late season roster addition in 2008 but never actually suited up for the Bucs and Brandon Dixon was not much more than a special teams roster filler during 2014. Isaiah Johnson did wear the 39 with distinction in the 2017 season finale when he scored on a special teams fumble return.
