The No.69 shirt After a few early no-names to own this number, Pete Pierson came along to play in over 100 games during his Tampa career and started most of the 2000 season at right tackle. He was famously signed after a meal at a local Beef O’Brady’s restaurant. George Yarno wore three numbers during his two stints with the Buccaneers but only wore No.69 in the 1985 season opener. Brian Blados was one of Sam Wyche's former players who saw brief action in two games in 1992. When asked if he had picked up Blados, Wyche replied, "No-one picks up Brian Blados - he weighs more than 300 pounds." John Bruhin was more of a back-up than a starter whilst Anthony Davis did a nice job for a couple of seasons at the tackle position but lost his starting spot when he was on the verge of challenging for the top 69 honour. Demar Dotson became a starter in 2012 and became one of the longest-serving Buccaneers of all-time, playing for no less than five head coaches in the process from Raheem Morris through to Bruce Arians. The number is currently owned by 2023 draft pick Cody Mauch who took over from Shaq Mason who had arrived in a 2022 trade with the Patriots. BEST EVER TO WEAR No.69 FOR THE BUCCANEERS - DEMAR DOTSON
