"Run  Michael, Run  Michael, Run  Michael, run.....Touchdown Tampa Bay"....and the rest is history!

The first ever Touchdown on a kickoff return, EVER, in Bucs history was scored by none other than Michael Spurlock, and as immortal as Gene's call, so is the player himself! Because He's back!

The Buccaneers announced today that they have signed WR Micheal Spurlock and released WR Yamon Figurs.

Spurlock, who played in four games this season for the San Francisco 49ers, played for Tampa Bay in 2007 and Arizona in 2006. But as we have said, he is forever a part of Buccaneers history after returning the first kickoff for a touchdown in team annals with his 90-yard return against Atlanta on December 16, 2007.

Figurs was signed on October 13 and saw action in three games for the Buccaneers in 2009.
