The No.96 shirt
Only 10 players have ever worn this number in franchise history and all bar three of them have been defensive tackles.

Tim Newton was the first but was probably more well known for being the brother of Cowboy bad boy Nate Newton, than any kind of top player in his own right.

Bernard Wilson did little to excel during his two years with the Bucs and Bryant Mix never even played a game, leaving Ellis Wyms as the best-ever to wear the jersey number for Tampa Bay, and he never even reached double figures in terms of starts for the Buccaneers.

Tim Crowder and Corvey Irvin are two of the most recent owners of the jersey and have had some nice moments as a pass-rusher but nothing ever worth really writing home about. Ryan Russell switched to 95 for his second season allowing Sealver Siliga to take over the number in his second year in Tampa Bay.
