The Tampa Bay Buccaneers may have been left off this year’s NFL Top 100 for 2018, but there’s (at least) one Buccaneer who they couldn’t keep off the Top 100 Greatest NFL Players of All Time.
“I’ve been around great players. I’ve been around How Long; I’ve been around Ted Hendricks; I’ve been around Reggie White. But, of all those players I just mentioned, the best player is Lee Roy Selmon.”

Great video Trevor, love watching old football tape, there’s such a cinematic quality to it due to the video equipment it was shot with. And Ron Wolfe’s commentary is incredible, I could listen to him talk about football for days.
However, this video is 2 years old! Where’s the flipping podcast?!?!
Derrick Brooks made that list as well. #97
One of my most cherished pieces of Bucs memorabilia is the 1985 photo of Lee Roy and me in his house with several of his trophies behind us. Of course it’s a much thinner Scubog. I’m glad I got a chance to see him play, meet him and get to know him a bit.
LEroy Selmon. Now there was one hellva Fottball Player!! I met him when I was a little boy growing up in Temple Terrace. It was after a game..we lost at the old Statidum. My Dad (God rest his soul) would sit there in the stands with me. He’s drink cheap beer (yes, it was cheap back then) Yell and curse for our poor Bucs to win. We Won..very few. Leroy came onto the field after the game to shake fans hands. I ran up to him as a teen and asked him to sign my Bucs hat. He did, shook my hand and smiled. Big Paws were they!! He was tired as hell yet smiled and signed a lot of autographs that evening. I always admired the way he played and carried himself. Wish we had more like’em!
I Totally agree LeRoy Selmon was the Greatest! A person had to see him play to understand just how good he was. Also he was a class act off the field.
