Before 1995 or so, it would have been hard to find four viable candidates for a Buccaneers’ Mt. Rushmore.
Nearly 20 years later, it won’t be easy to restrict it to four.
But we don’t have to do that just yet. For now, nominate the potential finalists, which likely will include a certain defensive back who recently retired, a retired defensive lineman who recently received enough votes for the Hall of Fame, and a retired coach who was instrumental in turning around a long-suffering franchise.
The nominations for all teams continue over the next week or so. Later this month, the voting begins. Eventually, each team’s Mt. Rushmore will be unveiled during the month of June on Pro Football Talk on NBC Sports Network.
