Though things can change significantly between now and the start of the 2009 regular season, several of the Buccaneers' newcomers have decided upon jersey numbers to don in pewter and red.

Running back Derrick Ward wore #34 with the New York Giants but his new squad already has an established player in that jersey, and it happens to be his primary backfield mate, Earnest Graham. Ward has elected to wear #28, which was recently vacated by released RB Warrick Dunn. Safety Tanard Jackson wore that number in 2007 as a rookie but gave it up to Dunn upon the running back's return to Tampa in '08. Jackson is now established as #36.

Tight end Kellen Winslow wore #80 while a member of the Cleveland Browns for the last five years, but that jersey remained occupied when unrestricted free agent Michael Clayton re-signed with the team last week. Several other numbers in the 80s were available to Winslow, but he chose a different path, reversing his college number of 81 and going with 18.

Others of note: Nugent has elected to trade in his #1 from New York and go with #5. Wearing #1 instead will be returning receiver Paris Warren, who has previously worn 82 and 18. Newly-signed linebacker Niko Koutouvides will wear #53, once made famous by Pro Bowler Shelton Quarles.

18 is a pretty sick number for a TE....looking forward to that... be weird seeing someone who is not Dunn wearing 28...it took me a while to reestablish him at 28 even after Tanard gave it up... as long as he racks up yards I'm all for it...just keep Tanard with 36 and it's all good (I hate seeing players I like having to change there numbers)

#18 for Winslow?   So he joins the following greats to wear #18 for the Bucs.

Brian Clark WR   (2007)  (Played in 1 game, no starts)
Parnell **CENSORED**enson QB (1976-1977) (Played in 8 games, 1 start)
Derrick Lewis WR (2004)  (Played in 0 games, 0 starts)

Winslow is different...He actually has talent unlike the guys mentioned above.
