Bucco Bruce is officially back! In anticipation for Tampa Bay's first "throwback game," which will be held on Sunday, November 8 against visiting Green Bay, the Buccaneers are wearing their white throwback helmets with Bucco Bruce, the winking pirate. The old helmets were worn by Tampa Bay from 1976-1996 before a new helmet, uniform and logo change went into effect.
The team's practice squad players are wearing the regular pewter helmets with the Bucs' battle flag, so the throwbacks are limited to just the players on the active roster.
Wednesday's practice is only an hour long. The Bucs will also practice on Thursday before a three-day weekend during the bye week.
Stay tuned for more news from today's practice on PewterReport.com.
