What Buccaneers numbers do you think we should retire?




We know Derrick Brooks is getting inducted into the Hall of Fame. We now officially know that Mr. Brooks will also enter our Ring of Honor as well. While it's no guarantee (though it should be), the Glazers haven't announced the retiring of the number 55. We saw last year they retired Warren Sapp's 99 as he was enshrined in the HOF and Derrick Brooks deserves the same treatment. If and when it gets retired, he will join the Lee Roy Selmon and Warren Sapp as the only numbers retired. My question to you Bucs Nation, who's jersey number should we retire?

I think some popular answers would undoubtedly be Ronde Barber, Paul Gruber, John Lynch, Mike Alstott but I'm going to cast my vote for Hardy Nickerson. He came to Tampa Bay as a free agent when it clearly wasn't a popular thing to do and started to bring some credibility to our franchise. Despite being on a losing team his first year, he still turned in an All Pro season and added a couple more to boot a few years later. Warren Sapp and Derrick Brooks credit him with showing them how to be leaders. To me, if Luke Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi get their jersey's retired so should Yoda.

So what say you? Who's jersey should we retire?
