The No.66 shirt Pat Toomay was a wonderful first wearer of this jersey as he took time to get in touch with me to support BUCPOWER.COM and also for writing the excellent book, Any Given Sunday. He also has a cameo role in the film if you look closely (next to Dick Butkus when he was coaching against Al Pacino). Booker Reese will go down as one of the most legendary draft busts in franchise history and wound up wearing a bigger number in a Florida jail for drug offences. As for the rest of the list, a real collection of names on the all-time roster and not a lot more. Ryan Benjamin was the first University of South Florida grad to appear for the Bucs and was the long-snapper on the Super Bowl team. Bruce Reimers was another of Sam Wyche's ex-Bengals who had a couple of years in Tampa. Damian Gregory was signed to the roster when the defensive line became a shadow of its Super Bowl dominating self during the 2004 season, and Nick Mihlhauser was one of those offensive linemen who never saw the field during his season with the Bucs. And then for seven seasons, no Buc wore it on the field during a game after Patrick Omameh notionally had it when he arrived on the roster in 2013 but he made up for it by starting every game at guard during the 2014 season. Leonard Wester took it over in 2016 and had the dream play by scoring on a tackle-eligible pass in the 2017 season. 2018 free agency signing Ryan Jensen has proven to be an excellent owner of the number 66 in his seasons anchoring the offensive line and generally being the first person into a scuffle to defend his QBs. BEST EVER TO WEAR No.66 FOR THE BUCCANEERS - RYAN JENSEN
