The 2020/2021 Buccaneers are getting their Super Bowl rings tonight, but there are plenty of other players throughout franchise history that deserve a similar honor.
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are finally set to receive their Super Bowl rings. It has been several months since the Bucs dominated the Kansas City Chiefs in the Super Bowl, and tonight caps off the final honors for one of the most impressive seasons in NFL history.
Everyone bet against Tom Brady and Tampa from the start, yet here they are. Brady adds his record-setting seventh piece of jewelry to his collection, and a vast majority of the roster will start a collection of their own tonight.
Other than a bust in Canton, there isn’t a higher honor in the league than a Super Bowl ring. Usually, those two honors come hand in hand for the best of the best, but tonight will be the physical manifestation of the zenith of their NFL careers for most of these players.
Super Bowl rings are meant to be a big deal. They add you to a select club of players throughout the history of the sport that speaks for itself from an accomplishment standpoint, and these current Buccaneers have earned every bit of this distinction.
While we have all fallen in love with this team and the current iteration of players, there are still other players from the history of the franchise that also deserve a ring of their own but could never reach those heights.
