Lee Roy Selmon the First Buc to be Put Into the Teams Ring of Honor

Pewter Report is reporting that the Bucs will be putting Hall of Famer Lee Roy Selmon into their Ring of Honor as the first player in. Here’s the story:

Tampa Bay is finalizing its plans for its throwback game and the unveiling of the team’s Ring of Honor at Raymond James Stadium this year.

While several players are candidates to be included in Tampa Bay’s Ring of Honor, has learned through sources that the Bucs plan to make Hall of Fame defensive end Lee Roy Selmon the first player inducted into the Bucs Ring of Honor at the team’s throwback game, which is expected to be the home contest vs. the Green Bay Packers on Nov. 8.

Currently, Tampa Bay also plans to induct just one player into the Bucs Ring of Honor each season, which means Selmon may be the only player inducted this year.

Selmon, 54, played for the Bucs from 1976-84. The former first-round pick made six Pro Bowls and helped Tampa Bay’s 1979 team earn a trip to the NFC Championship Game. That team will be honored in Tampa Bay’s throwback game, where the Bucs will wear their Bucco Bruce orange and white uniforms for the first time since the 1996 season.
