The No.65 shirt Dave Stalls was a good pass-rushing defensive end who actually led the team in sacks in the strike-shortened season of 1982 ahead of Lee Roy Selmon and went on to play in the USFL after leaving Tampa. Maulty Moore is one of only two players to have appeared for both the perfect Miami Dolphins and imperfect Tampa Bay Buccaneers along with LB Larry Ball, whilst Dan Graham managed to spend almost two years on the active/injured roster in Tampa for all of two plays in place of Randy Grimes. Russ Hochstein wound up starting for the Patriots in a Super Bowl and thanks to Warren Sapp's efforts, received a Tampa Super Bowl ring too having been on the team early in the 2002 season. Jeremy Trueblood occupied the number for the longest and started over 80 games for the Buccaneers in his seven seasons with the franchise but with never enough stellar performances and too many ill-timed penalties. In recent years the number has been owned by a back-up offensive lineman in Matthew Masifilo, one of three numbers he wore in appearing in the same number of games and LS Garrison Sanborn who switched after a year allowing it to be taken over by 2018 draft pick Alex Cappa who become a good starter in 2019. He also earned a Pro Bowl alternate nomination in 2021 allowing him to take over the best-ever 65 title which he celebrated by leaving in free agency to join the Bengals. BEST EVER TO WEAR No.65 FOR THE BUCCANEERS - ALEX CAPPA
