The Tampa Bay Buccaneers celebrated their throwback game with a 38-28 win over the Green Bay Packers last Sunday. The 1-7 Bucs will have another throwback of sorts in the broadcast booth this Sunday when former Tampa Bay safety John Lynch calls the Bucs at Dolphins game for FOX.
Ronn Pitts and Lynch are scheduled to call the Bucs' game vs. the 3-5 Dolphins at Land Shark Stadium in Miami on Sunday. Lynch played for the Bucs from 1993-2003.
Lynch, who helped the Bucs win Super Bowl XXXVII, was released during the 2004 offseason. The nine-time Pro Bowler spent the final four seasons of his NFL career with the Denver Broncos.
Since retiring from the NFL, Lynch, 38, has worked with FOX as an analyst. Lynch is quite familiar with the Bucs. Not only did he play for head coach Raheem Morris when he served as an assistant defensive backs coach in Tampa Bay, Lynch also was in the broadcast booth for Tampa Bay's preseason games in August and September.
