The No.37 shirt It took over a decade for any player to wear No.37 in a game for the Buccaneers and Kevin Walker's primary contribution to the annals of history of football in Tampa are for being named NFC Defensive Player of the Week during the strike games in 1987. Eddie Hunter followed him in the jersey at the end of that season and Charles Gladman technically wore it when the strike ended as he was placed on IR and hence remained part of the regular season roster. Anthony McDowell was a solid blocking back for three seasons in Tampa and wore No.37 before switching numbers in his final year. But it is Jerry Ellison who wins the best of a bad bunch for some solid performances, mainly as a rookie during the 1995 season. And of course, who can ever forget Cecil's one game for the Buccaneers before he returned to being an occasional studio presenter in the UK for Sky Sports. Five of the most recent owners of the jersey were both one week roster additions but never saw any meaningful playing time for the Bucs whilst Keith Tandy was never much more than a special teams player since his rookie season in 2012.
